Fox Netherlands selects TVT/DMC’s ‘private broadcast cloud’26 September 2017
Fox Netherlands has chosen TVT/DMC to enable the delivery of its content to audiences.
The channel will use the company’s ‘private broadcast cloud’, an all-IP platform that TVT/DMC said offers Fox “unprecedented flexibility, scale and capacity, and the potential to extend the type and quality of services available to Dutch audiences.”
Fox Netherlands is the fourth channel in the Fox Networks Group to launch with TVT/DMC, following the successful migration of 24 Kitchen, FOX Belgium and National Geographic. The channel is distributed using TVT/DMC’s fully managed European fibre network, which provides redundancy and disaster recovery management.
TVT/DMC’s full-IP platform allows users to accelerate time to market, reduce hardware requirements and maintain full control over their content.
Jan de Vries, director broadcast operations, FOX Networks Group, said: “Content delivery that we can count on is fundamentally important to our operations. We need to be sure our programmes will always arrive to our audiences, when they are scheduled and in the correct form. TVT/DMC provides the reliability and innovation that enables us to respond to the demands of today’s audiences.”
Raymond Lamphen, senior vice president of operations, TVT/DMC, added: “This year we are completing an extraordinary journey, transforming the way we deliver our clients’ content. We see this as a true step-change in industry innovation, turning the classic SDI infrastructure into a fully operational, virtualised pure-IP private broadcast cloud.”
