A typical IPTV system consists of TV gateway technology, time-shifting technology, middleware, applications, a subscriber management system, a monitoring and control system as well as user-terminals. Finding and qualifying suppliers of the above technologies and finding the system integration partner capable to integrate, test, deploy and maintain such an eco-system can be a challenging, expensive and lengthy process. This is why SnapTV has developed an all-inone IPTV solution aiming at the smaller and medium sized network operators with ambitions to add modern and future oriented IPTV services to their customers. From SnapTV you recieve a state of the art IPTV system allowing you to offer advanced IPTV services to your customers including a la carte channel subscriptions, time-shifting, electronic program guide, program recording, movie rental and more.

The SnapTV Monitoring and Control System allows you to change channel lineup easily, and provides you with a near real-time overview of the quality of the IPTV channels in your network.
