Globecast receives TPN certification across Asia, UK and France
Globecast has announced that it has successfully received its Trusted Partner Network (TPN) certification across its Asian, UK and French operations, including TPN renewal of its Digital Cinema business in France.
The certification covers all aspects of the business in these regions across the content acquisition, management, playout and distribution chains, ensuring maximum security across all elements of the business.
The TPN is a joint venture between two major entertainment industry associations, the Motion Picture Association (MPA) and the Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA), the worldwide leaders in third-party entertainment industry assessments.
The TPN establishes a single benchmark of minimum security preparedness for all vendors and their teams, wherever they work, and whatever their speciality. By creating a single, global directory of “trusted partner” vendors, content companies will have access to a centralised database to learn their TPN status.
Renaud Presty, security director at Globecast, commented: “TPN certification is very important for Globecast and our customers. TPN certification looks at all aspects of content security across our business, including physical security, human resources and awareness, cybersecurity and business continuity, to name just some. We are very pleased to have achieved the standards required.”
Globecast’s Digital Cinema service handles the transferring of digital content quickly and efficiently to 1,300 theatres in France (representing over 5,100 screens) through the public internet. It is also expanding this business across other international markets. Globecast manages everything from ingest and storage of the DCP files on-premises to monitoring quality control and delivery notification via SMS or email.
Presty added: “As a major industry player, we have put security at the heart of our global strategy. Being wholly-owned by Orange Group, we have access to a powerful array of security capabilities. Understanding the expectations of our customers across all aspects of security is vital. We’ve worked systematically across the company, continuously improving the way we operate, regularly testing and challenging our security plans. We are very pleased to achieve these TPN certifications and this is highly recognised throughout the industry.”
