Why Upgrade Hospitality Video Services?

Challenges with Current Networks :

M

Risk of service failure – CableCARD equipment is end-of-life or end-of-support

M

Upgrades blocked by legacy equipment – high cost to replace existing MPEG-2 and Dolby set-top boxes

M

Limited options for replacement gear – costly and proprietary encryption keep operators locked into legacy equipment

M

Complex network to maintain – typical RF over fiber solutions require more equipment in workflow

M

Inefficient, duplicated efforts – operators often run parallel networks for residential and hospitality customers

Benefits of Upgrading Video Services:

N

Experience reliable and secure video delivery – cost-effective encryption and transport from headend to hospitality sites

N

Gain flexibility by bridging new to legacy technology – convert video streams to any format at the edge, per use-case

N

Reduce costs – replace proprietary encryption with industry-standard protection options

N

Save rack space and power – replace multi-chassis systems with power-efficient, modular 1RU platforms

N

Deliver multiple formats simultaneously – output IP, Analog or QAM from the same chassis

How it Works

WISI’s headend and edge video platforms enable operators to serve all types of hospitality networks such as hotels, hospitals, nursing homes, educational institutions, and entertainment venues. No matter how your existing network is set-up, WISI products are able to seamlessly integrate and provide carrier-grade video delivery.

Some of our common deployments include:

 

N

IP to Analog or ClearQAM – receive MPEG-4 and output analog or transcode to MPEG-2 and output QAM

N

IP to IP and/or IP to QAM with Pro:Idiom encryption – deliver to hospitality sites that use Pro:Idiom encryption

N

IP direct from headend – replace CableCARD with our bulk encryption solutions over IP that maintain content requirements for secure transport. Then bulk-decrypt at the edge for stadiums, arenas, or any venue where in-the-clear video is required.

N

IP Demarcation – receive IP video at the edge and tailor feed to the customer’s unique IP requirements.

N

MPEG-2/MPEG-4 to multiscreen – transcode streams to multi-bitrate profiles and stream HLS live content

Example – Hospitality Workflow

Ingest IP or QAM sources. Bulk decrypt Verimatrix or BISS at the edge before outputting as Analog, QAM or IP. Optionally re-encrypt using Pro:Idiom, BISS or Verimatrix.
