The live HD channel from satellite was captured by Exterity’s DVB-S TV gateway and shared as IPTV on a local area network, before being received and decoded by Exterity HD receivers on the network. Netvue also showed full HD H.264 video IPTV encoding, from Exterity’s first production HD IPTV encoder.
Jonathan Rackowe, Netvue Technical Director declared, "The fact that we can demonstrate HD over IPTV with a single TV gateway and HD receiver shows just how far IPTV technology has progressed".
Colin Farquhar, CEO of Exterity, added “HD television feeding into public displays and digital signage can really drive home a lasting impression to customers and visitors”.

Though the event was stolen by the HD over IPTV. As Robin Howell, Managing Director of systems integrator Wire: Broadcast said when he visited Netvue’s event, “If you can demonstrate HD over IPTV like this, it shows that SD over IPTV is absolutely no problem”.
