what is IPTV :

IPTV brings together two worlds: IP technology and television. A revolutionary symbiosis between two very different specializations. At a time when there was still only analogue television, the notions of IP and TV were never met. Traditional television used a coaxial network for the transfer of analogue TV signals. The limited resolution of analogue television has motivated the search for a better alternative.


In the early nineties, digital television entered the market. This digitization has led to the broadcast of TV signals on an Internet network, like any other digital data. The convergence of these two universes set in motion an unlimited interactivity and open possibilities unthinkable with analogue television.

IPTV can be seen as a set of multimedia services, such as television, video, audio, data, ... managed to meet the highest demands for service, interactivity, security and reliability...

IPTV offers a wide range of possibilities that require additional software to realize them. This software is also called 'middleware'.
