UK broadcast playout company, Playout247, has announced the completion of two flagship connected TV studios. These provide state of the art equipment and live playout facilities to satellite and Internet television – from one single managed service.
Tanya Vidmar, sales director at Playout247, commented, “These facilities provide everything needed to future proof a TV channel as the market and manufacturers move more rapidly into the consumption of TV through connected devices; from TVs and games consoles, to phones and set top boxes.”
The facilities have been created for broadcasters looking to consolidate their playout needs while making the step into ‘over the top’ Internet distribution. “Demand for this powerful service combination is growing and we anticipate space in these studios will be highly sought after,” said Vidmar. “Despite the general economic situation, TV viewing is up and the revenue opportunities from combining both traditional satellite and now Internet delivery are very attractive.”
