ST Teleport installs Grass Valley GV Edge system
SINGAPORE: In order to cost effectively manage and deliver HD channel content across Asia, Singapore-based full-service satellite communications solution provider, ST Teleport, recently invested in a Grass Valley GV Edge integrated playout system with K2 Edge playout nodes.
Using a single K2 Edge playout node, ST Teleport will be able to create, expand and streamline its multichannel system in a simple and scalable way.
‘With the promising opportunity of growth in media content, it’s important for us to expand our offerings and add new channels to stay competitive,’ said Dennis Wong, managing director at ST Teleport. ‘We were looking for a playout solution that would give us metadata management across all of our channels as well as multichannel language control. GV Edge met this requirement head on, and we can now seamlessly add new channels and deliver exceptional content with optimal operational efficiency.’
GV Edge integrates several components for a full playout service, enabling ST Teleport to secure centralised control over its playout management by combining all the necessary functions of playout – including media playout, advanced channel graphics, and asset management – into one cohesive system.
‘This is our first collaboration with ST Teleport, and we are excited to assist the international service provider’s business offerings in simplifying their TV channel delivery for its media clients,’ added Stephen Wong, senior vice president, APAC, Grass Valley. ‘With the implementation of GV Edge, ST Teleport can manage its channels through a unified platform, and it is the benefit of ease and efficiency achieved through the platform that helps broadcasters stay ahead of the competition.’
