April 20, 2017

Encompass Digital Media, a global technology services company delivering end-to-end video playout and distribution solutions, has announced that Sony Pictures Television Networks has selected its CloudVOD platform and geographically diverse Digital Network Operations Centers (DNOC) to distribute VoD assets for Sony’s US channels, including getTV, Cine Sony, and Sony Movie Channel to major US multichannel video programming distributors (MVPD) and virtual multichannel video programming distributors (vMVPD).

Powered by Microsoft Azure, Encompass’ CloudVOD platform manages the nuances of processing requirements and multiple technology standards inherent in traditional and OTT VoD delivery.

“We are pleased to partner with Encompass to leverage their worldwide footprint and unified global solutions that provide a new alternative for delivering VOD content to North American MVPDs on behalf of our increasing number of platforms,” said Bob Billeci, EVP Technology & Operations at Sony Pictures Television Worldwide Networks. “CloudVOD is a highly automated, industry-leading platform that allows us to deliver the premium-value content our consumers seek, without compromising scalability, security and cost.”
