Pro Headend

Our ‘GT Pro-Headend’ range of All-in-One IxStreams streamers are designed for businesses who prioritise minimal TV channel downtime over cost. Typical clients are TV channel providers supplying TV packages in a B2B or B2C role, Retail Betting Operators, and other clients requiring fail-over capability.

The ‘Pro-headend’ range includes extra functionality over our standard GT range that includes:

  • Master/Slave Headend Modes. Automatic headend streamer fail-over functionality above the ordinary and having different modes for a range of customer situations, including the ability to mirror the TV channels and basic Portal/EPG services provided by existing 3rd Party manufacturers streamers.

  • Remote Monitoring and Management. Connection to our Ixanon Monitoring System (IMS) and sending ‘event’ messages to IMS or as SNMP Traps to external monitoring systems. IMS will even send SMS or email event messages to a nominated customer contact person.

  • Multi-Site Automatic Configuration. Our centralised configuration system can also be installed at the customer’s own central location; the system has an easy to use configuration user interface and automatic functions for automatically downloading preset configurations to many hotels immediately and at a preset time. Ideal for customers such as large hotel chains with many similar installations, retail betting shops, and TV channel package providers addressing B2B markets.

  • 48v DC power supply option for server rooms. Instead of normal 230v AC supply and allowing the IxStreams to also then work on the server room own reserve battery supply.

Please contact us for more details on our GT Pro-Headend and to discuss your specific requirements if you are considering or have need for true fail-over capability, or remote monitoring or automatic configurations.
