Anyware Video reaches a new milestone
IBC 2013 is an opportunity for us to present some of our most successful products with both international customers and major actors in the French broadcasting industry, after significant developments in the past year.
New technological modules deployed by long-standing partners
For Anyware Video, 2012 was mainly dedicated to developing new tools and optimizing our “All-in-One” solution. This year we are focusing on deploying solutions at our loyal customers. The key to such success, and our major strength, remains technical excellence combined with flexibility to adapt to customers' needs.
o The AB Group updates its HD distribution chains
It is both this flexibility and our ability to listen that first attracted the AB Group, and which have ensured its loyalty to Anyware Video solutions for over eight years now. In 2013 the group chose Anyware Video for migrating its legacy systems to new HD production and distribution chains.
AB Group has also added several new features. Audio dubbing and multilingual subtitling are now available on all AB channels, and AB uses our multiple overlay feature to continuously manage the various functions available (on-air graphics, logo generation, etc). The result is even more flexibility and simplicity for controlling channels.
o TF1,the major Channel TV in France opts for the All-in-One® automation tool
In 2013 TF1 successfully deployed various components of our end-to-end All-in-One® solution. Several modules were set up at the start of the year including supervision, subtitling, and IP acquisition (multicasting).
New distribution and integration agreements
- We exhibited at two major trade shows—IBC2012 and CABSAT 2013—and the interest observed through numerous contacts has boosted our international expansion. Our All-in-One solution was a great success with visitors from the UAE and Saudi Arabia during the CABSAT show in March 2013. This innovative solution meets the needs of Technical Directors at TV stations by simplifying daily management and control via an All-in-a-Box solution
- This show provided us with an opportunity to make new contacts in the region as well as in Mauritania.
o AICOX becomes our exclusive distributor in Spanish-speaking countries
AICOX is a Spanish distributor whose portfolio includes Overon, TVE, and Antenna 3. AICOX chose Anyware Video due to the tried-and-tested reliability of our solutions. In early 2013 we concluded our first exclusive distribution agreement covering an entire country. AICOX will offer our tools to all its Spanish customers, and adopt our approach combining availability, responsiveness, and quality. AICOX held their first Open House last April.
The agreement enables AICOX to submit our solutions in future tenders from Spanish broadcasters. It also opens a gateway to Latin America, our next target region for distribution.
o Dalet adds ClipShuttle® to its product line in both the United States and Asia
Anyware Video has signed an agreement with Dalet for integrating our ClipShuttle® ingest solution in their own media indexing system. This partnership with a market leader has opened the door for us to position ClipShuttle® with Canal+. Anyware Video now also works in the US with the Turner Group, the Time Warner subsidiary and owner of CNN, as well as in southern Asia with Médiacorp, the leading public broadcasting group in Singapore.
o Sustained growth focused on our core business
Anyware Video will move into new offices located in the Marseilles central business district during 2013. The premises offer much more space for our fast-growing team. Three new recruits are coming on board in September: two will work full time on quality control, and the third joins our R&D team.
Anyware Video continues to expand in the Gulf region. We are actively seeking distributors, and will attend the next CABSAT.
At Anyware Video we remain focused on our core business
the creation and development of reliable, semi-tailored tools that precisely address our customers' needs.
