NetTVworld to sell Web TV delivery system for $5,000

NetTVworld to sell Web TV delivery system for $5,000 NetTVworld is hoping to revolutionize IPTV with a new 4u rackmount server called the netTelecaster, which they're billing as "the world's first internet TV transmitter."
The box enables webcasters to webcast IPTV streams for the low price $5,000. According to the company it's capable of delivering up to 20,000 simultaneous streams, though for $5,000 it's not really being marketed to anyone who's likely to have that kind of need.

It may, on the other hand, be a good fit for companies wanting the ability to distribute video across large distances. Instead of needing to record to some kind of media, which then still has to be shipped to the desired location, the netTelecaster could enable them to easiily stream video from location to location across the interenet.

A lower priced version of the unit, the netTelecaster Slimline, is a 1u rackmount unit designed to handle only a single stream. It also lacks some redundant systems, including power supply and RAID array, that it's big brother will be outfitted with.

These are not and no way are low prices. It needs to go lower than that.
