Media services provider dock10 has joined Sohonet Media Network, allowing the company access to Sohonet’s international community of over 400 media locations, including broadcasters, studios, post production houses and advertising agencies.
From its HD production facility in MediaCityUK, Salford, dock10 delivers productions for UK broadcasters and independent production companies, including The Voice, Dragon’s Den, Match of the Day, Blue Peter, The Jeremy Kyle Show and Countdown.
Paul Clennell, CTO, dock10 said: “This direct, dedicated, connection gives dock10’s post and studio clients all the cost and time benefits of a file based workflow, with the added advantage of being connected to the UK media’s largest community-of-interest network.
“dock10 will migrate a number of its current services to the Sohonet connection, including the sending of clients’ studio rushes to post production partners and finished master delivery to DPP broadcasters as part of its ‘QC and Deliver’ service, which launched in April.”
Damien Carroll, COO, Sohonet, added: “The media production industry has always been highly collaborative and, with the emergence of cloud platforms offering SaaS and IaaS commercial models, media companies are recognising just how vital a role their network infrastructure plays in the creation and delivery of high-value media assets.”
