Provider of media logistics services to channel owners and operators, the Digital Media Centre (DMC), has selected Net Insight to deliver a new IP distribution network.

Part of AMC Networks International, DMC, provides services including the origination of over 100 television channels and the provision of 50,000 on-demand TV assets to operators each year. The company is building a new primary IP distribution network designed to enable migration of signal distribution from satellite to fibre and support further growth. The new network will deliver TV channels and content to cable, IPTV and OTT service providers within as well as outside Europe.

“We want to have a reliable, long-term partnership and their technology and expertise in media networks as well as their willingness to share knowledge has been imperative when looking for a new future-proof network solution,” explained Matthijs Zwart, director operations at DMC. “Net Insight's solutions are scalable and easy to manage and maintain, resulting in low costs of ownership.”

Added Net Insight CEO Fredrik Tumegård: “DMC is expanding its network rapidly and we look forward to being part of their journey and support them now and in the future ... By simplifying workflows and network complexities we help to improve the balance between content value and cost of production. This opens up new opportunities for DMC to connect content to audiences all over the world.”
