Whats IPTV ?
Internet Protocol television (IPTV) is a system through which television services are delivered using the Internet protocol suite over a packet-switched network such as a LAN or the Internet, instead of being delivered through traditional terrestrial, satellite signal, and cable television formats. Unlike downloaded media, IPTV offers the ability to stream the media in smaller batches, directly from the source. As a result, a client media player can begin playing the data (such as a movie) before the entire file has been transmitted. This is known as streaming media.
Now we have a lot of IPTV set op boxes
MAG256 is a unique open platform. You can make changes to our Set-Top Box software as well as integrate with other developers’ software.
MAG257 is a closed platform that does not allow image modification. It has integrated Verimatrix content security solution and is meant for operators that already use Verimatrix.
MAG256/MAG257 supports video compression format called HEVC allowing the playback of high-resolution video
Owing to powerful and effective ARM Cortex A9 1.5 GHz processor with 3 500 DMIPS productivity MAG256/MAG257 can process FullHD video and intensive apps, within short period of time
The audio output S/PDIF allows connecting multichannel HighEnd system to the Set-Top Box. HDMI 1.4A provides the highest quality of image.
MAG256/MAG257 plays the latest audio and video formats and it supports format and image settings, choice of audio track and playlists processing.
What is a Roku?
Roku Streaming Media PlayersThe Roku is a streaming media player, which means it takes content from the Internet and displays it on your TV. The Roku comes in six models, differentiated by performance and features. However, all models can access all 3500+ Roku channels.
Here are some other features that are common to all the models:
Full 1080p HD support
Shortcut buttons on the remote for popular channels, e.g. Netflix, Hulu, HBO GO, etc.
Search across multiple content providers
Mobile app available for casting personal media to your TV and providing remote capabilities
Ability to use the app in locations where you need to log into Wi-Fi like hotels and dorm rooms
This section explains what the main differences are between the various Roku models.
Each model includes all the features of the less expensive ones unless otherwise stated.
Roku Ultra: List Price $129.99
The Ultra is Roku’s top-of-the-line model. It supports both 4K and HDR video. (Note, however, that these features will only be of value to people who have 4K/HDR TVs and who are streaming content that is available in 4K and HDR.
The other main benefits of the Roku Ultra over the other models are:
It includes an Optical Out audio port for connecting to home theater systems.
It’s now the only model with a USB port for attaching a device to play your personal media files.
It has an enhanced remote that provides voice search and has gaming buttons.
It has a remote finder because apparently the developers have seen my living room. ?
Roku Premiere+: List Price $99.99
Here are the main benefits of the Premiere+ over the Premiere, Express+, Express, and Streaming Stick.
It supports HDR video.
It has an Ethernet port.
It comes with a more sophisticated remote control (but not the enhanced one that comes with the Ultra model):
It includes a headphone jack, so you can watch your streaming content without disturbing other people.
You don’t need to point it at the Roku player to work. (The streaming stick’s remote has this feature as well.)
Roku Premiere: List Price $79.99
Here are the main benefits of the Premiere over the Express+, Express, and Streaming Stick.
It supports 4K video.
It has a quad-core processor and 802.11ac dual-band wireless connectivity.
It offers a new feature called Night Listening Mode, that reduces loud sounds like explosions and increases soft sounds like whispering. You’re stuck with a line-of-sight remote, though.
It has a slot for a Micro SD card for additional memory to store additional apps and games if you run out of space on the box.
Roku Express/Express+: List Price $29.99/$39.99
The two Express models are the lowest-end versions, so they’re slower and don’t have most of the advanced features of the others. However the Express+ does have one very important benefit in that it is the only model now that can be used with non-HDTVs (in addition HDTVs). It has A/V ports (yellow, red, white connectors) so it is a great option for a lot of perfectly good TVs out there that just don’t happen to be HDTV. It’s also a major benefit over the other three streaming player competitors—Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast—which all require HDTVs.
As far as I can tell, the A/V support is the only difference between the Express and the Express+.
Roku Streaming Stick: List Price $49.99
Unlike the other 4 models, the Roku streaming stick is not a box. It’s a small stick that you plug directly into an HDMI port on your TV, which makes it a great option for wall-mounted TVs or if your TV is on a stand that doesn’t have a lot of space for a box.
In terms of features, the streaming stick is most like the Roku Premiere, but is missing the 4K support and additional Ethernet, USB, and Micro SD ports. It does, however, come with a “point anywhere” remote, but it doesn’t include a headphone jack. (Could these be any more confusing Roku?)
