Time-synchronized to every encoded copy made, the index enables immediate, accurate search and retrieval of assets.

o Virage IPTV and Video Search - Virage IPTV Suite streamlines the process of making television and video content available over the Internet, benefiting broadcasters in terms of enhanced flexibility and reduced costs while enriching the consumer experience by allowing them the unprecedented freedom to create their "own" TV.
