What is IPTV?
GCPS IPTV Introduction
GCPS IPTV is a web based tool to view a variety of television stations. It serves two purposes. First, the URL page gives teachers and staff access to a limited number of local and cable stations as well as GCPS TV (the line up is subject to change). Second, it gives teachers and staff access to the live feed that the video camera will generate. We now have a portable system that allows us to go live from anywhere in the school where there is a network drop and power.
