WEST PALM BEACH, FL – April 27TH, 2022, Thomson Broadcast, a world leader in the broadcast and infrastructure industries, has partnered with Google Cloud to enable the Channel in the Cloud solutions for broadcasters. Through this partnership, Thomson Broadcast will help broadcasters create, manage and deliver content through the broadcast chain, operating on Google Cloud’s global, flexible, and open infrastructure.
Thomson Broadcast’s cloud-based solution, “Channel in the Cloud,” enables broadcasters to monetize compelling and interactive content through traditional IP or broadcast chains, which allows broadcasters to effectively reach their target audiences. The company has also developed new over-the-top (OTT) and over-the-air (OTA) offerings to address emerging trends in the space. This partnership with Google Cloud will enable Thomson Broadcast to further address customer needs for high availability, increased scalability and maximized performance for OTA & OTT services, while simultaneously reducing operational costs, complexity and scalable solutions worldwide.
Emerging video landscape service providers require similar viewing experiences between live broadcast and OTT + OTA applications to scale and bring interactivity through ATSC 3.0 standards. With this partnership, OTT streaming services and OTA traditional broadcasters will be able to leverage Thomson’s Channel in the Cloud solutions on Google Cloud’s secure and global infrastructure to deliver seamless video experiences to viewers with low latency and at scale.
The rapid growth of OTT combined with OTA solutions will enable broadcasters to reach broadband and non-broadband users when delivering video content.
