Signiant Facilitates EBU’s Content-Exchange Platform
Data-exchange and -movement specialist Signiant is powering the EBU and its EuroVision News Exchange group’s new File Exchange Platform (FEP). Signiant’s Managers + Agents automation workflow serves as the centerpiece of a new file-based automated news-workflow sharing system serving some 200 locations of the 72 EBU members.
The File Exchange Platform (FEP) is said to represent a move away from linear satellite delivery of content between members to a smarter, more efficient file-based approach for news-content sharing.
A Signiant source remarks, “Now, when there’s breaking news in Europe and EBU members want to exchange feeds — about sports events or whatever — Signiant will be delivering the content at extreme speeds, far faster and without the constraints imposed by linear transmission systems.”
