Virtual Dictionary


IPTV, or Internet Protocol Television, is basically interactive TV streamed over the internet. It is a paradigm leap because, via IPTV, only one set of data has to be sent to any home at a time, instead of several hundred for the user to choose between.

This means the broadcast quality can be much, much higher, and a whole range of interactive, and immersive features added. It also means a possible end to 'lowest common denominator' programming, as there could be several billion IPTV stations without making an impact on quality - only the one requested is sent.
