NEP’s U.S. Mediabank Platform To Call Eurovision’s DC Facility Home
New partnership offers integrated media management and distribution
Eurovision Services (ES) and NEP Group are now working together in the U.S. NEP’s Mediabank media-asset–management platform will move into the Eurovision Americas facility in Washington, DC. The new partnership allows the two companies to offer a set of integrated media-management and distribution solutions to broadcasters and rightsholders, enabling clients to quickly and seamlessly search, review, collaborate, and share content across platforms.
Mediabank — an award-winning, cloud-based toolbox with an intuitive, user-friendly interface — allows clients to access their media files from anywhere at any time. Mediabank has powered major events across the globe and supports such clients as ESPN in the U.S. ES will offer connectivity and transmission services at its DC facility through its Eurovision Global Network, allowing U.S. clients to manage their workflows and media-content files faster and more efficiently through Mediabank.
“We’re delighted to partner with NEP and have them as a tenant in our DC facilities, where we are providing NEP with bidirectional transmission services to support the launch of their Mediabank service in the United States,” says Eurovision Americas President Roch Pellerin.
“Our partnership with Eurovision helps to ensure that the power of Mediabank is available to the clients and markets we serve in the U.S.,” adds Jay Deutsch, director, U.S. Media Solutions, NEP. “The DC facility we built enables off-premises live-ingest capability to Mediabank and sets the stage for highly efficient ways of working with live content. This is the first of many solutions I expect to come out of this next-generation production facility. We couldn’t be more excited about it.”
