Today’s media companies need to work fast, reduce their operational costs, and offer more advanced features than the competition in order to provide a full range of end-to-end services and successfully aggregate, manage, and deliver content.
At NAB 2018, MX1 will demonstrate its comprehensive media services, including the MX1 360 unified media platform for managing and delivering content to any broadcast, VOD, or OTT platform.

MX1 360 Unified Media Platform With High-Speed Editing
Also at NAB 2018, MX1 will showcase how its MX1 360 unified media platform speeds up the editing process and unlocks new workflows via remote, cloud-based editing of sports, news, and other live events. MX1 360’s revamped and easy to use editing tool allows for the quick and effective production of highlights directly from live feeds, whether the feed originates from satellite, fibre, or IP. To assist editors working on the fly, the system automatically associates external metadata with the feed, making it easy to locate specific events when producing fast turnaround highlights packages. MX1’s solution also allows for the archiving and future repurposing of content and highlights, while enabling content to be distributed worldwide to broadcast, VOD, and OTT platforms, all from a single system.
Demo of AFP News Feeds Using MX1 For IP Video Distribution
MX1 will show how one of the world’s largest news organisations, AFP, is using the company’s services to distribute video of breaking news stories to clients worldwide via a secure IP network. Video is delivered to MX1 by fibre and from there made available via MX1’s global infrastructure to broadcasters and publishers around the world. When major stories are breaking simultaneously, the AFPTV Live platform provides broadcasters and publishers with the flexibility to choose AFP news items that resonate most with their market.
Smart Cloud-Based Playout Solution Reduces Channel Origination Costs
MX1 Smart Playout is a cloud-based playout service that enables broadcasters easily and cost-effectively to create linear TV channels in SD, HD, or UHD without any upfront investment. Offering 24/7 maintenance, monitoring, and support from MX1, the smart playout solution takes the pressure off broadcasters by entrusting experts with complex tasks. The playout app combines content ingest, playlist editing, and channel monitoring with an intuitive comfortable dashboard and is accessible via web browsers from anywhere in the world, giving operators the power to govern every aspect of the process from a single screen. Featuring support for all major content formats and a range of digital video effects and secondary events, MX1 Smart Playout can be combined with further MX1 services such as media asset management, content archiving, cost-effective channel distribution via IP, content delivery to VOD platforms, and more. Highly scalable and completely network agnostic, the application shifts playout costs to an OPEX model, resulting in massive cost savings for broadcasters.
