TVT has announced that following its acquisition of DMC (Digital Media Centre), the two companies have now unified under a single name, becoming TVT Media.
Since acquiring the Amsterdam-based company from AMC Networks International just over a year ago, TVT has launched a number of new services, expanded across the globe, and hired a number of industry-leading figures.
The news caps a successful year of integration as TVT Media also announced that it now delivers 99 channels via its private broadcast cloud.
Under its new deal with ITV, which was announced in June, TVT Media manages media logistics, content preparation and access services through a unified platform for content distribution, linking closely with the ITV team and its partners to process more than 35,000 hours of content per year – including volumes being delivered to ITV Global Entertainment customers worldwide.
The 99 channels now being delivered via TVT Media’s full-IP virtualised platform include brands owned by A+E Networks, AMC Networks, FOX Networks Group, Liberty Global and Sony Pictures.
Ian Brotherston, TVT Media’s chief executive, said: “This has been an eventful year in which we have taken some huge steps and transformed what were two businesses into a unified, dynamic force. We’ve done this by blending talent, extending already-strong capabilities, adopting the best technologies from each, and building on the experience and expertise both groups brought to the table a year ago.
“Linking all the elements of our business together over the past year has put us in a strong and largely unique position to address the full complexities of global content delivery across cultures, languages and regulatory environments – all while overcoming technical hurdles,” Brotherston added. “We have now positioned ourselves to more effectively enrich, localise and publish content, delivering it in 50 countries and 40 languages."
