Singapore – Encompass Digital Media announced yesterday that its Asia Pacific facility will double its current multichannel broadcast monitoring and playout capacity through the construction of a US$7 million MEGAPOD. This is the region’s first comprehensive over-the-top (OTT) services facility enabling Encompass continue to meet the growing demands of customers in Asia Pacific.
“For content owners looking to grow in this dynamic region, leveraging technology to deliver content on multiple screens is a significant competitive advantage,” noted Deepakjit Singh, managing director for Encompass Asia Pacific. “Encompass’ new MEGAPOD will allow content partners to provide entertainment-on-demand across a variety of devices and create new options to monetize content as quickly as possible.
