In 2011, Disney Channel Benelux issued a new Request for Proposals. The key objective was to propose a unique solution that presents cost advantages and enables Disney to adapt to a rapidly changing media industry, whilst maintaining a high service level of 99.99%.
Disney Channels Benelux selected KPN Broadcast Services and SGT Vivesta to provide an end-to-end solution for Traffic and scheduling, MAM and Playout services. Disney, KPN Broadcast Services and Vivesta started their partnership in 2006 with the launch of one national channel. Since then, Disney has grown to four channels in the Netherlands and Belgium with additional services to cable VOD platforms.
“We are proud that one of the biggest names in the media and entertainment industry reconfirms the trust in our software. We believe in long-term relationships and flexible solutions to enable our customers to grow as they need. Disney is a proven example of that strategy.” says Thijs Vanderhallen, Marketing manager, SGT Vivesta”
With the MediaFlow Business MAM product and VEDA Automation product, SGT Vivesta will enable Disney to centralize all Business and MAM operations for multiple outlets in a single web-based system improving operational flexibility and efficiency while, at the same time, maintain a rock-solid and scalable transmission operation.
“We are in a rapidly changing media world and, based on experience, we know we can handle this with Vivesta’s Mediaflow product, one of the main reasons for the decision to stay with KPN and Vivesta.” Says Ad van Brummelen, Head of Broadcast Operations Disney Benelux
At KPN’s Broadcast Centre in the Netherlands, the philosophy is all about integration and interoperability – enabled by a Vivesta MediaFlow system for multiple output services
