Optibase Provides IPTV Encoding Solution for Fort Leavenworth's College

September 27, 2007  | 

Optibase, a leading provider of advanced digital video solutions together with InfoValue, a leading provider of comprehensive broadband streaming platforms and solutions, has supplied Fort Leavenworth's Command and General Staff College with an end-to-end IPTV system for its officers' leadership educational program.

The U.S. Army's Command and General Staff College (CGSC), located at Fort Leavenworth, educates and trains intermediate level Army Officers, International Officers, and Interagency leaders. The College prepares them to operate in full spectrum Army, joint interagency, and multinational operations as field grade commanders and staff officers. Over the years the focus has changed from preparing the Army and its leaders for war, to transforming it to meet new future threats and join the Global War on Terrorism.

In order to deal with the complexities of new global threats, it was necessary to integrate a sophisticated video solution as part of the training toolset. Optibase's carrier-grade Media Gateway (MGW) 1100 video encoding and streaming platforms, combined with InfoValue's BizTV IPTV solution, created a complete educational broadcasting system that brings the outdoor operational environment inside the college premises.

Optibase's MGW platforms offer a Telco-grade IPTV streaming solution in a compact, cost-effective platform. By utilizing cutting-edge MPEG-4 H.264 technology to encode and stream channels to the classroom, live video can be delivered with high picture quality and low bit rates.

"We are very proud to be deployed in the U.S. Army's Command and General Staff College," said Adam Schadle, president of Optibase. "Optibase's MGW product offers the Army all the features of a sophisticated carrier-grade video streaming platform that is easy to deploy and upgrade for additional channel capacity. It provides the best of both worlds: cost effectiveness together with top video quality and reliability. For the Army this translates into being able to create the most effective educational experience."
