IPTV Software Engineer
Plexus TV is an end-to-end service that allows you to watch your TV anywhere through a bandwidth efficient IPTV stream. Plexus TV goes beyond the barriers of conventional television enabling yachts to watch live content with OmniAccess’ Broadbeam satellite link, including in-built capability to prioritize traffic and streaming quality. With Plexus TV there is no need to change the on-board AV network as it integrates with your existing systems, allowing you to handle the Plexus IPTV stream as just another input source.
OmniAccess developed a world-class video distribution platform for the superyachting environment. And now that platform is growing even more with live TV channels, VOD content, and any customized content.
