Haivision lights up Galaxy Macau

According to Asia-Pacific Broadcasting, Haivision Network Video is powering a “state-of-the-art” digital signage deployment at the “dazzling” Galaxy Macau resort that opened earlier this year on Macau’s popular Cotai Strip.

The US $2 billion property “is a showcase of the latest resort and entertainment technologies and innovations. The resort’s state-of-the-art digital signage installation is no exception,” according to the APB.

From screens located in public areas throughout the property, guests can view HD guides to the facilities and entertainment venues, as well as current promotions and presentations on upcoming resort events. The Galaxy’s IPTV-based video sign­age system is powered by the Makito HD H.264 encoder from Haivision, which provides advanced video networking, digital signage and IP video distribution solutions.

The Galaxy Macau’s HD signage content originates from more than 20 rack-mounted signage players connected directly via a digi­tal visual interface to the Makito HD H.264 encoders, which in turn send the HD content over IP to HD set-top boxes that are affixed to flat panels and large-format LED displays throughout the resort complex. So far, the installation includes 4,000 set-top box endpoints, 800 of which drive HD content at public area displays.
