MARATHON, FLORIDA, February 5, 2011.
Managing LIVE HD video delivery to set top boxes has been a challenge to media producers, broadcasting networks and corporations worldwide. Eyepartner has developed a low cost iPTV middleware that delivers HD Live, VOD, and Channel Lineups directly to the affordable ROKU set top box. TikiLIVE makes it easy for anyone to setup a channel and broadcast their stream in full HD, with a simple to use click-and-go interface. The user can quickly arrange a playlist of pre-recorded video as well as offer it on a pay per view basis.
The TikiLIVE iPTV platform, based on a patent pending streaming technology, requires no proprietary hardware or advanced training to use. This solution was designed to easily broadcast and deliver LIVE streaming, VODs, and channel lineups in HD “over the top” directly to the ROKU set top boxes as well as to your streaming sites simultaneously. The TikiLIVE platform is to be made available through direct marketing along with various OEM channel partners, distributors.
“Professionals, movie makers, broadcasters and enthusiast alike now have the ability to schedule content and broadcast their HD media directly into the living rooms of their audience through the ROKU set top box; quickly, easily and without purchasing proprietary hardware” as quoted by Tim Green, President of Eyepartner.
So, how does it work? Eyepartner offers a simple application with an easy to use dashboard that can be accessed from any Web Browser. The user is offered live broadcasting tools, VOD uploading capabilities to arrange playlists and publish channel lineups. All media is conveniently hosted and streamed from Eyepartner central server farms. The user may decide to publish a combination of LIVE, VOD or channel lineups. The user may set the content as free or on a pay per view basis. The stream is instantly streamed to a channel onto the ROKU set top box.
Eyepartner offers simple “how-to” tutorials that walk the user through the broadcasting process with simple step-by-step instructions. For more information on how this works, users may sign up www.tikilive.com for a free trial run of the TikiLIVE platform.

Why is IPTV better than regular TV?
TV is great. It’s been around for years and we’re used to how it works. There is no denying that this is true. But IPTV is in many ways far superior than “normal” TV. In the following article we’ve highlighted a few of the advantages that IPTV can offer you, as the broadcaster, and your viewers.
IPTV offers the phenomenal image quality
Recently a lot of video quality comparisons have been made on different devices or services – specifically the quality from satellite, cable and DVB-T against IPTV. The results have been as we anticipated: The winner was declared to be IPTV! For example our TikiLIVE broadcaster called the HD Wave can deliver an amazing HD streaming experience to the audience in true 1080i or 1080p at up to 60 frames per second which is Blu-Ray quality!
You can instantly LIVE stream your video sources or upload the videos to be available as Video On Demand. A tutorial about how to get started with The HD Wave and to publish your content on the web can be found HERE.
This feature has taken off recently with DVRs and TiVo, but in reality this is a core feature of IPTV and it was IPTV that made this possible! “Time Shifting” allows you to pause a program or stream and start it again. Recording and storing for later viewing is also possible. In television PVRs (Personal Video Recorder) and DVRs (Digital Video Recorder) or computers equipped with a TV capture card are used to time shift. All these make this function the most popular IPTV benefit of all.
Video On Demand
IPTV providers offer shows and movies to their audience so you don’t have to be the program director of a TV station to gain access to that content. IPTV providers also offer access to their own online video store. Some of them allow you to choose from thousands of titles to satisfy all of your customers’ tastes.
TikiLIVE IPTV solution is the place where users stream, record and transcode their content for later edit, using the TikiLIVE revolutionary broadcaster. Transcoding can be done in many formats so you can make your content available for Windows, Linux or Mac operating systems.
The Monster Uploader, recently updated by the TikiLIVE team allows you to easily publish videos into your account as Video On Demand. More information about the Monster Uploader can be found HERE.
IPTV provides for a so-called “back channel”, which is essential for interactive applications. There are already some applications TikiLIVE works with to offer the end users what they want most, interactivity. For example you can use a set top box to browse TikiLIVE content. Just connect it to your TV via HDMI, component, composite, or S-video and then plug it to your sound system and you are ready to experience TV in stunning HD video and crystal-clear audio. The device will automatically scan and display the available channels.

The Roku box is compatible with our platform so you can view the channels and videos from TikiLIVE – in the future you will also have access to the Pay per View and subscription content.

The set-top box itself is necessary for the TV signals to be transmitted over the DSL line via internet then converted back into a usable signal for the TV similarly as with satellite TV.

Marketing and brand building is a snap with TikiLIVE since a TikiLIVE customizable web portal comes complete with analytics that track viewers’ habits.
If your website reaches a global market you will need to offer it in multiple languages. The Multi Language Module creates identical templates of your website where each individual field can be re-written into another language. A “dictionary” is created in the account dashboard where the field-specific text is in rows and all of the languages offered appear in columns.
None of the text is auto-translated, so embarrassing miscommunication is avoided. Changes can be made to one language without affecting the others. A site visitor simply clicks on the flag for the accompanying language and the entire site switches to that language.
A complete introduction to TikiLIVE’s many features can be found at www.tikilive.org. More information about Eyepartner and the entire range of services the company provides is available through the company’s website, www.eyepartner.com.
