IPTV or AVoIP? Choosing the right tools for the job
Understanding IP Video Technologies
With the terms ‘IPTV’ and ‘AVoIP’ frequently interchanged, focusing on the use case can help determine the right technology for your IP video distribution.
IP-based video distribution offers many well-recognised advantages over legacy analogue technologies, including reliability, flexibility, reach and cost – especially as Ethernet-based networks are deployed into new buildings as standard. Recently, the terms ‘IPTV’ and ‘AV over IP’ (AVoIP) have been used interchangeably, which has led to some confusion at both a technical and application level.
This guide offers a candid look at the different technologies and use cases. Aimed at both newcomers and more experienced specifiers, integrators and end users, this guide is a 10-minute read that helps to demystify the subject and aids the reader in understanding IP video technologies to help work out which is most suited for a range of use cases.
