Exterity, the building IPTV specialist, has announced the global launch of the new AvediaPlayer line of IPTV receivers. Starting with the AvediaPlayer r9200 and AvediaPlayer r9220, these receivers offer increased versatility, convenience and control when connecting TV and AV displays to an organisation’s Local Area Network (LAN) for access to TV, video and radio streams.
Both devices feature smaller footprints than previous Exterity HD receivers, with the AvediaPlayer r9200 measuring just 140mm wide by 35mm tall, making it ideal for concealed, behind-screen mounting. The AvediaPlayer r9220 also features TriplePlay functionality, with a built-in hub providing three additional Ethernet ports that can be used to provide internet access to PCs and VoIP telephone services from a single Ethernet network connection. Both IPTV receivers have an external USB port that can be used to connect a keyboard and mouse for easier user interaction.
For even more user convenience and control, the receivers are compatible with the new Exterity iPhone app that gives users control of channel, volume, language and more using their Apple iPhone or iPad over their organisation’s Wi-Fi network. Administrators can enjoy fine-grained control over channel display and user access using Exterity’s centralised management applications, as well as standard network access controls and directory services.
Both units include support for a Kensington lock and are compatible with three other optional mounting brackets: an under-desk mount and two behind-screen VESA mounts with a cage that offer additional protection to the units and associated cables for installation in secure accommodations such as hospitals and prisons.
AvediaPlayer receivers will start shipping in October 2010 and can be seen in action at IBC2010 between 10-14 September at Amsterdam’s RAI halls. The Exterity Stand (721) is in the Connected World (Hall 9) in the IPTV Zone.
