NBA’s Orlando Magic have installed VITEC’s IPTV Sports Venue Solution which includes the EZ TV IPTV middleware, HD Blade Encoders and VITEC’s IPTV set-top-boxes at Amway Center, the team’s home arena. The installation was part of an upgrade to the arena’s video and signage systems, during which the organization decided to change from an all-signage system with over 1,000 displays to a best-of-breed hybrid of a Cutting-Edge IPTV solution and dedicated Digital Signage System.
“Choosing VITEC’s IPTV Sports Venue solution gave us the best video quality, streaming latency performance and intuitive TV experience for Club and Founders Level Suites,” said Jeff Lutes, Vice President of Information Technology for Orlando Magic. “We are impressed with VITEC’s EZ TV middleware and the flexible customization options and the ability to stream to our full screen displays as well as to tablets. VITEC’s IPTV solution delivers the highest video quality to improve the fan experience and the reliability needed when managing a large scale video system such as ours. The deployment process with VITEC was a breeze, EZ TV was quickly integrated to our existing network, and was easy to setup and customize to our needs. We are confident our fans will enjoy the upgraded experience. “
