A fully outsourced end-to-end service

Linear television still dominates the market, and our Playout services will make sure your content reaches the audience exactly as scheduled. We offer end-to-end, fully outsourced linear playout services for all channel types — ranging from “thematic” or pre-recorded content channels through to highly complex “dynamic” channels featuring live events, regional variations, high resilience requirements and advanced on-screen graphics. We can even help content owners and creators springboard from IP streaming into success on linear platforms.

Globally scalable
