From Distribution to Management, Tata Communications Knows Video

The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome Tata Communications as a sponsor. Tata’s Tier 1 IP network carries internet traffic around the world, and the company has one of the largest, most advanced undersea cable networks carrying data and voice around the globe — connecting more than 200 countries. Tata owns one of the most advanced and seamless global transmission networks and more than 1 million square feet of Tier 1 data-centre space to provide collocation and hosting services to a range of corporate clients.

Tata’s portfolio of products, specifically designed for the media and entertainment industry, enables digital-media management and delivery throughout the global media value chain.

VideoConnect was built on Tata Communications’ global video-enabled network. The world’s most advanced network dedicated to flexible delivery of high-quality video content across key global media hotspots, it allows content delivery in any format.

Mosaic, an enterprise-class online digital media-management platform acquired this year by Tata, provides a workflow platform to help media companies streamline how they work with and manage digital media — ensuring secure, efficient management of content and workflow throughout the value chain. Customers benefit from lower overhead costs, shortened postproduction time, the flexibility of an open operating environment, and premium content delivery over Tata’s global fiber backbone.

Tata is also a major player in the satellite broadcasting world. It is the only operator in India with redundant teleport infrastructure across five cities and access to all key satellites in Asia, providing a footprint from Australia to the Middle East. Tata Communications also offers playout services and turnaround for key satellites in Asia on a permanent and ad hoc basis.

Tata’s media solutions are supported by a world-class Global Media Delivery infrastructure, providing a range of managed and connectivity services. These include managed storage, managed security, and a content-delivery network. In addition, Tata Communications’ Content Delivery Network (CDN), powered by BitGravity, is built on its fully owned Tier 1 IP network, which enables live and on-demand video delivery across the world.
