Actus CEO Sima Levy comments: “Actus provides several components in one platform, answering the full scope of MediaCorp’s requirements: from ingest of live feeds with SEA content, through automatic or semi-automatic clips marking, and up to delivery of multiple profiles of clips in various bit-rates, resolutions, into various OTT devices, all done in parallel, fast, and reliably”.
“MediaCorp is pulling out all the stops to provide comprehensive coverage of the 28th SEA Games,” said Joe Igoe, Chief Technology Officer, MediaCorp. “We needed a solution that would support our coverage on Toggle, our over-the-top internet video service, for viewers anytime, anywhere and on any device.
