Margaret Rouse Margaret Rouse Profile: Margaret Rouse

van_den_dam_rob2.jpg IPTV is a system where video content is transmitted in the form of IP-data packages over a closed secure network. The infrastructure is configured such that viewers can only receive the IPTV provider’s own TV-channels. IPTV focuses primarily on the TV-set in the living room, generally a wide-screen TV with high image quality. A Set Top Box (STP) is required to receive the signal.
