SGT Vivesta, KPN Broadcast Services supplying Disney Benelux playout17 November 2011
Disney Channels Benelux has selected KPN Broadcast Services and SGT Vivesta to provide an end-to-end solution for traffic and scheduling, MAM and playout services.
The announcement represents a further continuation of the long-term partnership between Disney, KPN Broadcast Services. The relationship commenced in 2006 with the launch of one national channel, since when Disney has grown to encompass four channels in the Netherlands and Belgium, with additional services to cable VOD platforms.
With the MediaFlow Business MAM product and VEDA Automation product, SGT Vivesta will enable Disney to centralise all business and MAM operations for multiple outlets in a single web-based system. The result, says Vivesta, will be improved operational flexibility and efficiency, as well as the maintenance of solid and scalable transmission processes.
“We are proud that one of the biggest names in the media and entertainment industry reconfirms the trust in our software,” said Thijs Vanderhallen (pictured), marketing manager, SGT Vivesta. “We believe in long-term relationships and flexible solutions to enable our customers to grow as they need. Disney is a proven example of that strategy.”
“We are in a rapidly changing media world and, based on experience, we know we can handle this with Vivesta’s Mediaflow product, one of the main reasons for the decision to stay with KPN and Vivesta,” said Ad van Brummelen, head of broadcast operations, Disney Benelux.
