Canal+

“Have you thought about how outsourcing your operations helps you to grow globally and focus on content?”

Fully Managed Service for international Distribution

The Challenge

  • Achieve Vivendi’s vision of becoming a major media company by growing Canal+ (one of its subsidiaries) into a larger international TV company with an easily expandable facility
  • Build a new site for Canal+Overseas, to serve as a third site for Canal+ group, connected to their core media asset management and content scheduling system
  • Focus on producing and acquiring content and develop Canal+ à la demande (on demand)
  • Expand and grow in Africa

Grow internationally

The Solution

  • Move channels from Boulogne to a new future-proof Ericsson HD platform at Ericsson’s Mediadome
  • Manage the MCR and Playout for 20 linear channels, both live and thematic, including three barker channels
  • Boost content production by creating:
    • A brand new 100m2 studio
    • A production gallery
    • 11 post-production suites
    • Two audio suites
    • Four speaker booths
  • Provide a Media Management service, ingesting, validating, archiving and transcoding content for non-linear distribution
