OVERVIEW – Managed Dynamic Playout
Complex and Dynamic
If your channels are complex, featuring dynamic live events and last-minute inclusion of content and commercials and is regionalized then our reliable Managed Dynamic Playout service is for you. Our clients’ channels evolve regularly, as do their challenges. Because of our scale, we’re able to respond fast with effective, trusted and robust results.
Due to the size of the task and the agile responsiveness it demands, we have dedicated teams located across our global hubs. Supported by bespoke infrastructure, each team is equipped to deliver the full range of Playout services, extending to the operation of the highest specification Media Control Rooms.
Stringent Quality Requirements, Stable Output
Broadcasting a channel packed with live content takes quality requirements to the most stringent level, and demands consistently stable output. There is no room for error or downtime, yet only the most credible and scalable Playout providers are able to guarantee the necessary level of quality and stability.
Access to Capital
Building an in-house thematic Playout solution from the ground up requires a significant up-front investment. You need to find a Managed Thematic Playout service you can trust to provide you with the most innovative and trusted technology on an operational expenditure basis.
Availability of Resources
The resources required for building a Playout center are scarce. It makes more sense to seek a fully managed Playout service that offers instant access to the fullest possible range of resources, on demand.
Equipment Support and Obsolescence
Because of the speed of Playout technology evolution, the risk of resource obsolescence looms large. Rather than having to make continued investments in new technology, it makes more sense for broadcasters to out-task their Playout requirements to a solid provider who invests on their behalf.
