Digital Rapids' MediaMesh Distribution System Honored with "Best of IBC2009" Editors' Award
Markham, Ontario: Digital Rapids -- the leading provider of tools and solutions for bringing television, film and web content to wider audiences -- announced today that the company's new MediaMesh content distribution system has won a TVBEurope "Best of IBC2009" Editors' Award. The award is the second accolade bestowed upon MediaMesh following its launch at the annual IBC convention in September.
The "Best of IBC2009" Editors' Awards are chosen by the combined editorial teams behind TVBEurope magazine and the official show publication, The IBC Daily. The editors searched IBC for the most innovative new products that demonstrated the potential to make or save money for end users -- not just clever technology for technology's sake.
"We're thrilled that MediaMesh has been recognized by TVBEurope for its innovative and efficient approach to media delivery and distribution," said Brick Eksten, President of Digital Rapids Corporation. "By streamlining and simplifying the delivery process, MediaMesh enables content providers to lower their transport and operational costs while expanding their revenues through broader distribution and syndication."
MediaMesh combines a robust, scalable delivery framework with full-featured, flexible receiving appliances, providing efficient distribution of digital media between content providers, contributors, aggregators and distribution partners. Enabling delivery of HD, SD and Digital Cinema content over terrestrial IP networks and satellite, MediaMesh significantly lowers delivery costs while streamlining the tapeless delivery of content ranging from ad spots and promos to syndicated series and long-form features. MediaMesh RX receiving appliances provide powerful functionality at the endpoints of the digital distribution chain, with integrated review, inventory management, transcoding, re-packaging and playout.
