Media and Broadcast

Transforming media organisations in the digital age

The media sector is undergoing rapid evolution with advances in technology driving the need for solutions to meet increasingly complex requirements. Almost every aspect of the sector has changed introducing the need for innovative business models to capitalise on the ‘Internet Generation’. New players are gaining ground and existing brands are moving to digital. Colt have been unpinning this transformation successfully for all our customers in the following markets:

Addressing industry challenges

  • IT /  Media convergence

Media and broadcast technology and IT departments are colliding as vendors are crossing over and legacy broadcast technologies embrace Ethernet. Colt helps organisations manage the convergence of these departments needs into a fully managed service using the strength of the Colt network and our partnerships with Cisco, EMC and Nevion.

  • Digital workflow and asset management

EU and regional government policies are directing the industry towards digital compliance, alongside technology breakthroughs that have enabled cost effective solutions for a fully end-to-end digital workflow experience from conception to delivery. Our solutions around digital asset management, application performance and BYOD are enabling businesses to evolve how they create and monetise content.

  • High capacity networking & computing

Live HD broadcasting, post-production workflows, multi-format editing & publishing, multi-region advertising campaigns – all of these functions are delivered over our fibre network.
