IPTV and Video-on-Demand Playback Support
The Tornado DMC application supports playback of IPTV and Video-on-Demand content delivered over the Internet to a personal computer. The player utilizes MPEG4 and H.264 video compression technologies to ensure maximum quality of the reproduced content.
Digital Music and Internet Radio Playback Support
The Tornado DMC application also supports playback of audio streams, such as Digital Music and Internet Radio. Such streams are delivered to the Tornado DMC over the Internet in MP3 format for maximum quality of the audio content.
VoIP Telephony with SIP Protocol Support
The Tornado DMC application also offers VoIP phone functionality. The application supports the SIP protocol and can work with any standard third party SIP registration server for making VoIP calls.
Video Content Encoding
In addition to audio and video playback capabilities, the Tornado DMC application offers video encoding capabilities. Users can utilize the Tornado DMC to encode personal video content in MPEG4 format. Once encoded, such video content can be reproduced directly on the user’s TV screen via a Tornado device.
The Tornado DMC application offers a Camera Streaming feature which allows users to stream live video content to other users within the same provider network. The Tornado DMC application captures, via an USB camera, live video content and streams it to the central servers of the service provider. The central servers then re-stream such content as a new IPTV channel to other Tornado or Tornado DMC users.
100+ Over-The-Top (OTT) and Free-To-Air (FTA) Channel Support *
The server includes over 100 built-in OTT and FTA channels that allow service jump-start with a large number of pre-defined channels. In addition, the OTT channels do not require bandwidth support because the STB devices will access them directly without connecting to the Streaming server. OTT and FTA channels are great IPTV service complement that provides better channel variety and selection.
