VDSL delivered VOD

IPTV software and services company Myrio and the R&D arm of BT, BTexact, recently carried out a demonstration of video from two sources, a VOD server and the Internet, delivered over VDSL to both thin and thick client STB’s. This is interesting for a number of reasons:- it’s from multiple sources so third parties can supply content, BT are publicly talking about their VDSL testing (which has been quietly happening for sometime now) and the content is going to STB’s (not PCs), so there may be a number of suppliers of viewing platforms.
