Global media services company MX1 and media technology Vubiquity have announced a multi-year deal. The new service offering combines Vubiquity’s linear transport portfolio with MX1’s service infrastructure and future-proof content aggregation, management, and delivery technology. The combined capabilities offer broadcasters, TV channels, affiliates, rights holders, and content aggregators the ability to aggregate content and reach millions of viewers worldwide, quickly and simply through a single platform.

“We selected MX1 to provide the necessary innovative media technologies to support Vubiquity’s linear growth. We look forward to continuing to build this relationship,” said Darcy Antonellis, CEO at Vubiquity.

The offered services are centralized from MX1’s media centre in Hawley, Pennsylvania, and went live in the U.S. at the end of 2016.

“We are delighted to be working closely with Vubiquity and this deal represents a winning combination, bringing together the world’s best content, deliverable to anyone, on any screen,” said Avi Cohen, CEO at MX1. “Our customers, who are video content providers, will greatly benefit from this new service, in terms of being able to bring their services to market faster, customise their offerings based on geographic location, and scale quickly to accommodate viewers in multiple locations, with various standards and screens.”
