Netvue has installed an IPTV head-end at The Farm Group's
'Uncle' post-production facility in London. This head-end
streams TV and Satellite channels, plus a feed from
the company's video matrix, across the IT network.
Farm Group's IT network spans all four of their London
post-production facility sites, so the Netvue system
allows them to show streamed IPTV channels on TV displays
at all of their sites.
With a mixture of PVR (personal video recorder) and standard
IPTV player applications for desktop computers, The Farm Group
are also able to view TV channels on computers, and make scheduled
recordings for later viewing. As Group Director of Technology
Dave Klafkowski told Netvue, "IPTV distribution is the grown-up
way to send TV around our business".

Because the IPTV channels run on the company IT network
the addition of live TV and video was done simply and
easily using the Netvue installed IPTV head-end.
