IBC 2016: MX1 shows off complete global service offering
MX1, a global media services company newly formed from the merger of RR Media and SES Platform Services (SPS), presents its complete service offering and new innovative, end-to-end media service platform, MX1 360. MX1, a wholly owned subsidiary of SES, works with leading media businesses to transform content into the ultimate viewer experience for a global audience. MX1 serves as a complete end-to-end media experience provider, amplifying the value of media content.
MX1 has centralised its full suite of next-generation video and media services into its new innovative open media service platform – MX1 360, enabling leading media businesses to manage, deliver, and monetise content from a single, hybrid, cloud-based and on-premises service platform.
Positioned at the core of MX1 360 are three main service areas, leveraging the capabilities and global infrastructure of the two merged companies:
Transform – shaping and organising content so it’s ready to be shared in the most powerful way;
Accelerate – providing the tools and expertise to turn content into the ultimate viewer experience;
Globalize – bringing the ultimate viewer experience to the largest global audience.
Avi Cohen, MX1’s CEO, says, “We’ve combined two complementary companies with a purpose to globalize and accelerate the world’s media experiences. Bringing together creative content, unrivalled expertise and our world-class infrastructure, we’re working with our customers to monetise their content as the ultimate viewer experience, enabling them to reach more people, in more places, and on more screens, than ever before. Our innovative service platform MX1 360 gives media customers a tool for managing and delivering their content, setting a new standard for the industry. And our unique service approach gives them a partner that truly serves their needs – they can focus on creating amazing content, and we take care of everything else.”
MX1’s new senior management team includes members of SPS management as well as RR Media. ”Our new leadership team represents some of the most experienced and skilled managers in the media industry today,” says Cohen. “Together we are confident that our new company strategy will be effectively implemented worldwide.”
