ATG Danmon reports healthy demand for broadcast SI services
“September’s IBC show in Amsterdam came at a very busy time for us,” comments ATG Danmon MD Christoffer Kay. “Work on a new ingest and playout facility for TBN Europe was recently completed. ATG Danmon engineers have also been heavily occupied on a large install at an iconic London building. Our sister company in the Middle East is also generating good business with a substantial broadcast compliance system now in transit for onsite installation mid October.”
“The UK’s formal switchover to file-based content delivery to broadcasters came into official effect on October 1,” adds Chris Elson, ATG Danmon product sales manager. “File-based content management has proved itself throughout the world to be more efficient, more operator friendly and more economical than discrete media.
“ATG pioneered the adoption of file-based broadcasting and therefore fully understands the workflow involved from ingest right through to transmission. The company’s success is based on its detailed understanding of live and file-based workflow and its ability to combine these in systems which can be scaled easily as our clients’ business develops.
“In our product distribution role, we announced at IBC a new partnership with Unlimi-Tech Software to promote their FileCatalyst software. FileCatalyst is simply the fastest way to move data across the planet. It allows the high-speed transfer of any file, of any size or format, giving video production companies, post-production facilities and broadcasters the ability to collaborate globally.
“FileCatalyst joins ATG Danmon’s existing portfolio which includes the AmberFin range of file processors and Vidcheck automated quality control software.”
