Adam Smith, CEO and Founder of Simplestream, said, “We are pleased that the London Data Exchange is now home to our London Media Hub, which securely streams over 80 channels in the UK and across Europe. We are fully committed as a business to ensure the best content security for our premium broadcast partners and have been recently certified by the Federation Against Copyright Theft (FACT) in recognition of the high levels of service and security we provide.”
Rob Garbutt, CEO at LDeX said: “We are delighted that Simplestream chose LDeX as its streaming data centre and connectivity partner for their media and streaming hub. Having a high profile media client such as Simplestream emphasises the quality of our LDeX data centres and our ability to stream media content globally over our high bandwidth, low latency global reach network.”
LDeX is quickly becoming the digital hub of choice for media clients seeking a data centre that can cater for a media industry with niche requirements for satellite and global network reach as well as the ability to support high power density rack configurations. LDeX can meet these requirements through its vast array of satellite downlink capabilities including Astra, Nilesat, Hotbird, Eutelsat, Intelsat, Sirus4 and Thor and by bolstering its ON-NET carriers with global networks including Level(3)’s CDN network as well as euNetworks, Colt, Sprint, Geo Networks and NTT.
Simplestream, leaders of Live Streaming, CatchupTV and Media Management solutions for European broadcasters, have been continually investing in their technologies and infrastructure to cater for their clients’ media management and content delivery needs. “VuTV”, a subsidiary of Simplestream and S&T, launches this week, having licensed a portfolio of live TV channels such as MTV, Comedy Central, CNN, Lifetime®, HISTORY®, Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. These premium Pay TV channels and other customers of Simplestream, are downlinked from satellite, transcoded and encrypted to be streamed to authorised devices, ensuring the highest level of data security and reliability at the London Data Exchange.
