Forward TM


The Forward TM product is designed to organize rebroadcasting of TV signal with a time shift without rescheduling. Delayed TV signal is shifted “as is” by required time. Possibilities of inserting blocks with advertisement and own TV programs and overlaying titles are absent here.

Price of the product is lower and the product is easy in use because of few opportunities. 
It can be a part of a cloud solution or a local video server. The product is installed on PC with Windows OS. Forward TM is supplied as a software set and input/output board (depending on signal type) or as a turnkey video server. One video server can provide delayed rebroadcasting of several TV channels simultaneously.
