TataComm to build US co's cloud platform
Tata Communications has been chosen by a US-based digital media and broadcasting company to build a high-performance cloud-based platform for global media asset management, content contribution and distribution.
It will enable VICE Media to capture content anywhere in the world, and quickly make it available to hundreds of editors in production centres in New York City, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Toronto and London, for publishing and broadcasting across VICE Media channels, Tata Communications said on Tuesday.
The new platform is underpinned by Tata Communications Media Ecosystem, which offers VICE Media a full set of media solutions.
It includes the Video Connect service, which complements VICE Media's local area network and provides the company with a global area network of video contribution and Internet Protocol connectivity.
With speeds of up to 10 Gbps, Video Connect enables a seamless transfer of video files and remote collaboration between VICE Media teams across different geographies as if they were in the same location.
The Media Ecosystem is also equipped with Tata Communications Cloud Storage, which provides VICE Media with secure, reliable private cloud-based media storage for read- write access and archival of data-intensive video files.
