Our media practice focuses on delivering network solutions for clients in the broadcast and media industry, who are responsible for networks that underpin thousands of hours of television broadcast in the UK every week. Our teams design, implement and manage networks that support direct-to-home and over-the-top services, enabling our clients to compete in a highly competitive market.
The broadcast and media industries constantly change as consumer expectations and habits alter, so too do business and revenue models.
Multi-platform content delivery for linear and catch-up are now standard customer expectations, but still have to be offered alongside traditional broadcast in order to remain competitive.
Dependence on the use of IP networking continues to be high in the media world and is still growing; the investment in good underlying IP infrastructure is key and has the potential for enormous return.
Tapeless workflows and digital asset-management drive huge efficiencies and enable asset-retrieval to happen rapidly. Highly accurate audience figures and insight into viewing habits allow targeted advertising. Infinitely scalable IP infrastructure enables over the top channel launches quickly, without the traditional satellite or terrestrial barriers, whilst the availability of pay-TV across multiple platforms increases the take-up of these services.
We have expertise in design, implementation and operational management of corporate and broadcast networks, in addition to a wealth of experience of working on large service-provider networks.
Our ability to work across multiple network disciplines as one team is a big advantage and key to our success amongst triple-play providers where TV, voice and broadband are offered as a single package. Where our technical project managers are involved we have visibility and input across the whole networking piece, which enables us to deliver efficiently, quickly and to a very high standard.
We deliver a variety of services for our clients, from operational and support work, through to next generation data centre design and service-provider capacity improvements.
