Worldwide drinks group uses Exterity to deliver multimedia
and brand image around stylish new offices
SABMiller is one of the world’s largest brewers, with a brewing presence in over 40 countries across
four continents; a portfolio of strong brands and market leading shares in many of the countries in
which it has brewing operations.
Outside the USA, SABMiller plc is one of the largest bottlers of Coca-Cola products in the world.
When planning their operations expansion, SABMiller wanted video technologies that matched their
facility’s ‘Wow’ factor and having one network, with the ability to run IT, telephony and AV seamlessly
across it was crucial.
“One day was more than enough for initial test; the Exterity products were so comprehensive
and easy to use we knew straight away that this was going to be the solution for us.”
Roger Chappe de Leonval, IT Manager, SABMiller
Traditionally, all AV is piped into a building using coaxial cabling, which is expensive to maintain and slow to deploy. Furthermore, it
requires a completely separate system and could not run off a single infrastructure network, which was a prerequisite for SABMiller.
Exterity was recommended to SABMiller as specialists in delivering networked AV over IP.
Roll Out
Straight away Exterity presented the ideal solution as other network AV
products proved difficult to use and had heavy back-ends. Before moving into
the offices, SABMiller commissioned a one day trial of Exterity AvediaStream
TVgateway and AvediaPlayer Receiver, which together enable the distribution
of multimedia material such as video, TV and DVDs through the network. To
get internal buy-in, SABMiller IT Team presented the solution to the building
team, with positive feedback from the team, the installation partner was given
the green light to start deployment.
The Exterity solution, rolled out in two days,
extended SABMiller’s Ethernet network.
TVgateways enabled stream terrestrial
broadcast feeds across the network. Exterity
Receivers were added to televisions and
plasma displays for direct end point access to
all available digital media.
The system enables any media stored on the network to be streamed to meeting rooms, an impressive communal atrium area, bar area
and cafeteria. The SABMiller team decided it would stream company brand identity, positioning and advertisements to the atrium, bar
and cafeteria area.
SABMiller uses the rest of the screens to stream news, sport and entertainment, important monitoring resources for employees to know
what is happening in the world. Delighted that not only did the Exterity system allowed SABMiller to stick to their one network infrastructure
policy, it helped to create the ‘whoa’ factor that they really wanted from their new offices and has been a vital tool promoting brand identity
with employees and visitors.

International news agency Reuters cements 2500 employees reputation
as leading source of intelligent information for business with constant
connection to global news
International news agency Reuters, a division of Thomson Reuters, operates in
more than 200 cities in 94 countries and transmits news in over twenty languages.
It has an unrivalled reputation across the globe as the first to report breaking news
and almost every major news outlet in the world subscribes to its news services.
The UK’s headquarters in Canary Wharf, London house more than 2500 employees
with a need to constantly monitor breaking news and global events.
“As an international organization, it is essential that staff at our headquarters
have instant access to television from all over the world. The Exterity
network IPTV solution gives us this in an innovative and cost-effective way”
Matt Hassock, Technical Manager, Reuters.
Reuters aging coaxial TV distribution system couldn’t keep up with corporate growth and demand for video distribution and was too
hard to integrate with staff desktop computers. The existing system wasn’t scalable, adding users was difficult, requiring lifting floors and
running new cables, and tended to degrade picture quality. This made it difficult for Reuters to add new employees and quite expensive
to expand in to additional offices.
Reuters Goals
Provide employee desktop access to world news channels
and internal broadcasts
Leverage existing network technology to simultaneously
deliver live broadcast and existing business applications
Eliminate obsolete, redundant coaxial video distribution
Enable easy scalability to accommodate growth
Reuters found its solution in an Exterity IPTV system,
which uses Reuters’ existing IP network to stream crystal
clear live TV from all over the world to over 300 displays
in conference rooms and lecture theatres, as well as
2,500 screens and desktops around the office with no
need for additional cabling. Channels are supplied from
a single satellite dish; keeping investment in additional
signal reception equipment to a minimum.
Reuters employees have instant, desktop access to over 60 digital satellite, terrestrial and internally produced channels enabling them to
stay on top of all news, in real-time. By using the existing IP network, operational costs are lowered and demands reduced on Reuters IT
Administration employees to manage an additional network just for TV and video. As a fully scalable solution, the Exterity system is future
proofed for the addition of channels and end points.

Secure end to end IPTV for multinational energy company employee facility
Shell, a global group of energy and petrochemical companies, is one of the largest and most
recognized in the Oil and Gas industry. Located in more than 70 countries and territories and with
around 87,000 employees world-wide, their focus is on exploring for new oil and gas reserves and
developing major projects.
By providing video entertainment to their crews, Shell aimed to improve camp morale and minimize employee turnover. They understood
that deploying video services over the existing IP network infrastructure would be the most expedient way to achieve the required TV
channels, movies and video services.
The company chose an Exterity solution for live, on-demand and recorded secure distribution of digital content, integrating Exterity IPTV
technologies directly onto the existing network, thereby avoiding additional network investment and minimizing disruption of services
already being delivered across it.

World class IPTV for a championship venue, Grade Stade de Lille
Broadcasting the action happening on the field and stage is a prerequisite for all stadiums and
venues. However, the sheer size of the venues creates challenges for pro-AV installers as they
require multiple end points around the premises. In order to distribute live feeds and video programs
in real time, installers need to use an IPTV system that can scale and process various signals at
once without degrading the image. These considerations led to the installation of an Exterity IPTV
system at Grand Stade de Lille, maximizing the impact of the sports matches and concerts hosted,
including the upcoming Euro 2016 championship.
The Grand Stade de Lille was constructed as an alternative to the two other main stadia in France, the Stade de France in Paris and
the Vélodrôme in Marseille. As its main functionality is to host sports events such as football and rugby matches, as well as concerts
by internationally acclaimed artists, streaming live video to the 50,000 attendees was a key priority to ensure the public can watch all
the action as it unfolds. The selected IPTV system needed to be integrated into the stadium’s AV offering including audio, stadium and
hospitality screens, digital signage and AV monitoring.
In order to distribute video to all 215 end points around the stadium, the
pro-AV installer and events specialist partner deployed an Exterity IPTV
system including satellite and terrestrial TVgateways, HD encoders and
AvediaPlayer Receivers all managed through AvediaServer. The IPTV
installation transfers DVB-T and DVB-S signals and provides a single
User Interface to monitor activity on the network and schedule content
playback efficiently. Additionally, AvediaPlayer Receivers fitted with an
Ethernet port and an HDMI output receive and decode a large number
of SD and HD IPTV streams. In addition to broadcasting IPTV streams,
the Exterity system integrates with digital signage to offer additional
information in real time.
The Exterity system was integrated into the stadium’s
global AV system and put to use immediately upon
completion. The system carries both live feeds and
programs and is able to decode and transcode SD and
HD signals, enabling sports and music fans to enjoy the
action taking place in real time, whether they are near
the field or in hospitality rooms.
The Exterity IPTV system is currently used to broadcast
all the venue’s concerts and sporting events, and will
be instrumental in airing the Euro 2016 tournament

Impressive video and communication displays in
modernized airport terminals across mainland Spain
The Spanish Airport Authorities wanted to modernize the communication systems in terminals
across Malaga, Seville, Madrid, Barcelona and Alicante airports they chose an integrated solution
combining Exterity IPTV with digital signage technology. The end result was an impressive, scalable
and easy to upgrade system delivering IPTV and digital signage over the LAN.
IP Video Solution
Digital Signage Integration
The airports IPTV system architecture includes an Exterity
AvediaStream c1110 chassis, with the security of a redundant power
supply, and the ability to hot swap IPTV modules. The chassis hosts
DVB-T gateways which stream channels from local DTT services and
DVB-S/S2 gateways, with integrated CAM slots, which descramble
encrypted channels from satellite services. AvediaPlayer Receivers
are mounted on TV screens and monitors around the terminal
displaying channels brought to the airport network.
An AvediaServer located in the airport communications room provides
control of the Exterity IPTV system with the ability to store thousands
of hours of on-demand and scheduled for play content.
Taking digital signage player output and turning it
into an IPTV channel on the network means it can be
viewed by any Exterity IPTV Receiver attached to a
display; a solution which is much more cost effective
than having a digital signage player attached to each
end point display. To put the digital signage player
signal onto the IP network, a converter turned the
VGA player output into a PAL video signal, then is
encoded by an Exterity AvediaStream encoder
into an MPEG video stream. Exterity AvediaPlayer
Receivers, mounted with the LCD screens around
the terminal, receive the signage stream simply as an
additional available channel.
Essential departures and arrivals signage boards were optimized and the commercial opportunities for shops, restaurants and bars within
the airport improved, as they were able to promote themselves by offering commercial TV, scheduled play TV channels and promotional
messages. The most significant benefit of the system is its flexibility with HD being the standard for broadcast today, it is important that
terminals and transportation hubs can easily upgrade from SD to HD Encoders and Receivers, and this is what Exterity offers.

Exclusive resort delivers first class in-room entertainment
service with scalable Video over IP
Hilwood Resorts and Hotels operate the Grand Hotel Jersey, a fully refurbished fourstar hotel in the Channel Islands with 123 bedrooms. To help achieve its rating, the
hotel required a comprehensive in-room entertainment system that would not only
deliver a top-quality viewing experience, but do so in a manner that complimented the
hotel’s striking architecture and futuristic ambiance.
When planning the resort refurbishment, it
became obvious that a traditional coaxial
TV distribution system could not support
the hotel’s determination to provide a 21stcentury multimedia experience to guests.
Such systems suffer signal degradation from
long cable runs, which cause ghosting and
picture breakup. Given the ubiquity of home
DVD players and their high-quality pictures,
this would be totally out of tune with guest
expectations of a luxury resort.
The Exterity solution uses the hotel’s newly installed IP network to stream
terrestrial and satellite channels, as well as recorded video and audio
content, to televisions and computers connected to the hotel network. All
channels are captured and supplied to the network via Exterity TVgateways
and Encoders. Exterity IPTV Receivers in each room connect TVs to the
network and are powered from the network cable instead of the main,
which simplified installation and reduces power costs. The entire system
is integrated to the hotel’s guest entertainment supplier who confidently
supplies the latest movie and TV content safe in the knowledge that the
IPTV system is secure and tamper-proof.
Guests can access a variety of channels and entertainment from the comfort of their own suite. They can choose between watching
the news, the latest movies or listen to a variety of music channels available 24 hours a day at the touch of a button, and added to their
accommodation bill hassle free – all enhancing their resort experience. The system is future-proof and scalable virtually without limit.
Extra channels and on-demand videos can easily be added at any time, and additional displays installed without additional cabling or any
negative impact on picture quality.
“We wanted a solution that would give our guests a futuristic multimedia experience. Exterity network IPTV has
achieved this, and is completely in tune with the hotel’s innovative look and feel.”

University College London makes the grade with Exterity
networked video over IP
Founded in 1826, UCL is London’s leading multidisciplinary university, with 8,000 staff
and 22,000 students. Over 140 nationalities are represented among UCL students
with overseas students making up nearly a third of the student body. Based in the
heart of London, UCL is ranked seventh in the world.
UCL required a means of providing TV and video to its language departments in
order to enhance the learning experience for its students. Educational videos and
TV from around the world streamed direct to students would form an essential
resource for linguistic and cultural learning within the departments.
Having heard other Universities recommend
IPTV systems from Exterity at events
and conferences, UCL investigated the
technology and found that IPTV was ideally
suited to the project. The Exterity solution
uses satellite TVgateways to capture
broadcast from international multiplexes,
and Avedia software clients and Receivers
deliver channels to multiple end points
around five sites.
UCL is spread across multiple sites in London, and the language departments
occupy five separate buildings, the University had previously been unable to
install a TV system to provide this valuable resource, and had been searching
for a scalable, centrally controlled TV and video distribution solution that would
meet their requirements.
Students learning any of the languages on offer at UCL can access the IPTV system from any departmental PC and view a global archive
of recorded material, without the inconvenience of having to locate and retrieve video tapes or DVDs.
“Students benefit from watching live TV direct from foreign countries as they can see the language they are
studying being used naturally, and learn about that country’s culture, adding an extra dimension to the learning
experience. UCL prides itself on being one of the most innovative learning centers in the world, so it was vital to
enhance the departments with the innovative technology that reflects this.”

Dr. Zafar Chudry, CIO, Liverpool and Alder Hay Trusts
The hospital required major investment in TV and video services to improve the patient experience in accordance with a government
mandate on acceptable patient charters. Due to the physical restraints of the existing cabling and the building layout itself, selecting an
enterprise video over IP solution seemed the obvious choice. The Trust also wanted a solution that could scale as they considered future
possibilities for staff communication and development.
The Exterity system leverages the hospital’s high speed
LAN on top of which sits Exterity head-end equipment
capturing and streaming the 25+ broadcast channels
to individual patient bedside screens and public areas.
Exterity high-stream encoders inject signals from a Digital
Signage player to show important announcements and
hospital information. In the waiting rooms, 40-inch monitors
display live and rolling news with subtitles provisioned from
Exterity Receivers.
Picture quality at end points now match viewer expectation
to watch video of the same broadcast quality they would
experience at home. A patient survey revealed that 75% rated
the choice of TV, Video and radio as ‘excellent’ and easy to
use. The Trust has been impressed with patient willingness to
pay for bedside TV services, and consider the IPTV system
a success not only in terms of patient experience but also for
re-couping the system investment cost.

Protect Content Investment with Secure IP Delivery of Premium TV & VoD
Content owners, broadcasters, media operators and businesses deploying IPTV services need to incorporate
the most advantageous options available to secure premium content over an enterprise IPTV system. Access to
valuable content needs to be controlled by the IPTV system provider to secure revenue from monetize content
and protect the material from illegal copying and distribution.
Exterity meets the demand for secure delivery of valuable content with the addition of support for High bandwidth
Digital Content Protection (HDCP) v2, to sit alongside more established SecureMedia encryption and the
interoperability of Exterity TVgateways with industry leading Conditional Access Systems (CAS).
Exterity is the premier manufacturer of enterprise video over IP technologies to meet exacting digital content protection
protocols by embedding HDCPv2 into Avedia head end and Receiver clients.
As the only content protection technology to secure the complete video path across an IP network, from HDCP video source
to HDCP end point, any business wishing to show Blu-ray or other HDCP protected content can confidently do so, safe in
the knowledge that their Exterity system is truly secure and compliant with HDCP.
Conditional Access Encryption
Exterity TVgateways descramble encrypted content
(CAMs). With inbuilt dual tuners, TVgateways can
securely distribute content from two satellite sources
simultaneously and stream it across an IP network.
Exterity TVgateways support CAMs from the leading
providers of Conditional Access technologies such as
Irdeto, NDS, Viaccess and Nagra.
ARRIS SecureMedia Encryptonite ONE solution
provides digital rights management (DRM) protection
to meet security requirements of leading broadcasters.
More and more Broadcasters need to protect content
investment and potential revenue streams by verifying
exactly what content businesses have access to. The
integration of SecureMedia ensures live premium
TV and video on demand content is restricted to only
authorized Exterity Receivers.
