VideoPropulsion has dramatically increased the performance of its line of headend appliances for hospitality by announcing the FG-4130E to deliver up to 120 channels of DISH Network® programming.

FloodGate FG-4000 Series Hospitality Headend Appliance

The new FG-4130E delivers up to 120 channels of DISH Network programming

With a luminary reputation for delivering the highest-density and lowest-cost per stream hospitality headend systems in the business, VideoPropulsion® (OTC:VPTV) announces it has once again increased the throughput and lowered the per stream price of its FloodGate FG-4000E Series headend appliances for hospitality.

The new FG-4130E supports an industry-leading 120 channels of DISH Network® programming. The FG-4130E also comes with the same features found in the FG-4000E series family of appliances including Stream Prioritization, Receiver Failover, enhanced SNMP monitoring, online configuration editing, extended satellite information, and a 3-year limited warranty. VideoPropulsion's traditional FloodGate differentiators also include built-in Electronic Program Guide (EPG), playout of custom hotel-specific private channels, and SNMP status messaging.

“Hotels are demanding an ever-increasing number of linear television channels to meet the needs of a wider guest demographic”, said Carl Pick, Chairman & CEO at VideoPropulsion, now in it’s 40th year of continuous operation. "In addition to delivering a few dozen, hotel brand-standard lineups, many hotels are choosing to provide additional niche content as well as international channels in order to differentiate in a competitive marketplace. We’re delighted to be able to offer this additional capacity at a substantially lower cost than any other solution available.”

VideoPropulsion is the only solutions provider that supports all of the major hospitality encryption standards including Pro:Idiom®, SamsungLYNK®, and Verimatrix® – with protected digital outputs supporting both COAX and IPTV networks. International models are also available and being deployed worldwide to support DVB-C Annex A operating at 8MHz.

The FloodGate FG-4130E is available direct from VideoPropulsion.
