The client wants to deliver live, high-quality video content to desktops,
classrooms and meeting rooms over today's enterprise networks. This enables
organizations to provide high-impact instruction, communications, seminars
and more directly to the desktops of employees, partners and students.
Viewers can watch subject matter experts, see synchronized PowerPoint
presentations and even ask questions. Since this solution is based on
network-efficient multicast technology, enterprises can take advantage of a
quality streaming solution that offers total control over bandwidth and
network performance.

The term set-top box (STB) describes a device that connects to a television
and some external source of signal, and turns the signal into content then
displayed on the screen. The signal source might be an ethernet cable, (see
triple play), a satellite dish, a coaxial cable (see cable television), a
telephone line (including DSL connections), or even an ordinary VHF or UHF
antenna. Content, in this context, could mean any or all of video, audio,
Internet webpages, interactive games, or other possibilities. A set-top box
does not necessarily contain a tuner of its own. A box connected to a
television (or VCR) set's SCART connector is fed with the baseband
television signal from the set's tuner, and can ask the television to
display the returned processed signal instead. This feature is used for
decoding Pay TV in Europe, and in the past was used for decoding teletext,
before decoders became built-in. The outgoing signal can be of the same
nature as the incoming signal, or RGB component video, or even an "insert"
over the original signal, thanks to the "fast switching" feature of SCART.
In case of Pay TV, this solution avoids the hassles associated with having a
second remote control
