VidOvation Expands to Corporate and Government Markets


March 15, 2013

VidOvation has a goal: to bring its innovative broadcast expertise and technology to AV and government customers at prices so affordable that it will help encourage early adoption of it. As of today, it has expanded that strategy, helping provide broadcast quality audio and video with a new focus.

As part of the new strategy, VidOvation will focus on three new technologies. For starters, it will look at IPTV and Video-over-IP systems implemented in an open architecture. These can provide high end features, as well as great quality and a powerful performance at price points that can match lower-end systems.

Secondly, it will focus on webcasting and video streaming technology that provide streaming and encoding over Wi-Fi, wired, or cellular networks for up to four cameras at a fraction of the implementation cost that other systems may have.

Last but not least, it will start focusing on fiber optic transmission cables that can connect to SD/HD-SDI, broadband, or RF networks, while remaining cost-effective.

The company will demonstrate its new acquisitions and deliver on its new strategy at NAB 2013 in the Last Vegas Convention Center. It will be at Booth N1307, demonstrating IPTV open architecture, webcasting and video streaming products, fiber optic transmission systems and more.

“While VidOvation is known for delivering innovative technologies to broadcast networks like our award winning In-net wireless GoalCam system to the National Hockey League, we also wanted to extend the reach of our flexible and versatile systems into new market verticals that have similar application needs that allow us to leverage our decades of AV knowledge and experience,” says Jim Jachetta, VidOvation’s president and CEO.

“For example, our IPTV software is built on an open architecture that enables flexibility in implementation, allowing for the purchase of hardware from multiple hardware vendors. This affords the best quality and performance for each customer’s environment and budget with no vendor lock in.”

VidOvation has done a great job in providing video and data communication systems, although up until now it has mainly focused on the broadcast television and sports markets. With the expansion to corporate and government verticals, it’s opening itself to many new possibilities for expanding customer bases and innovation. Getting into a new market is always tricky, but VidOvation knows what it’s doing, and is well equipped for the task ahead.
