Hillsboro, Ore., December 18, 2013 — ST Teleport, the Singapore-based full-service satellite communications solution provider, installed Grass Valley® GV Edge™ integrated playout system with K2 Edge™ playout nodes to cost effectively manage and deliver HD channel content across Asia. Using a single K2 Edge playout node, ST Teleport will be able to create, expand and streamline its multichannel system in a simple, resilient 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."
The strength of GV Edge lies in the way it seamlessly integrates several components for a full playout service. It enables ST Teleport to secure centralized 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. The robust and purpose-built solution offers mission-critical 24/7 playout applications, making it a highly reliable and high-performance playout platform.
"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," said 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."
