Parliament of Victoria keeps updated with Exterity


In order to keep updated with the latest developments in Australia, the Parliament of Victoria selected an ArtioSign IPTV and digital signage system by Exterity and worked closely with AV and video conferencing firm, Parity, on the project. This was supplied, installed and configured by Australian contractor, Fredon.

The IPTV solution provides the MPs and other members of staff live video from the Legislative Council, Legislative Assembly and certain committee rooms. This also allows access to FTA channels. ‘The IPTV deployment offers a system that has met our expectations and has been delivered on time and within budget,’ said James Scott, manager of Hansard within the Department of Parliamentary Services. ‘Exterity has proven it can be a one-stop shop for delivering, recording, managing and scheduling all our network-based content. The management software is also easy to use, yet powerful enough to allow us to adapt it for our future needs.’ 

The IPTV system uses one headend for FTA (terrestrial), Foxtel (satellite) and a second headend in the broadcast facilities for internal Parliamentary broadcast, which uses seven SDI cards. The system runs across a Gigabit Ethernet network that connects to Exterity Avedia Player r9300 IPTV PoE media players across 102 of the Parliament’s offices in the new annexe as well as 40 offices in the original buildings. The installation also consists of audio capabilities from Dante in order to integrate the existing audio feeds from both chambers into the IP-based system.

Jamie Hind, regional director for Asia Pacific at Exterity, added: ‘In today’s always-on world, it’s crucial that government buildings are equipped with the technology needed to ensure staff are always up to date on the latest political debates and legislations. We are proud of Exterity’s role in this award-winning project which is helping government staff be successful in their work and decision making.’
