Mediaproxy Case Study: AMC Newtworks
AMC Networks International (AMCNI) is the global distribution division of US cable operator and entertainment media group AMC Networks Inc. Its activities are divided across different regional territories, each with a dedicated operating unit handling multiple television channels broadcasting targeted programming, in specific languages, to countries within its region. Each channel is available on a variety of platforms to multiple devices, calling for extensive compliance monitoring to ensure output conforms to different regulatory standards and provides a consistent level of quality for viewers.
AMCNI Central and Northern Europe, which covers 14 nations including Germany, the Czech Republic, Serbia, Slovenia and Ukraine, updated its logging and analysis system four years ago with the installation of a Mediaproxy LogServer monitor and analyzer. It is now in the process of expanding this set-up to accommodate new services.
From its broadcast center in the Hungarian capital of Budapest, AMCNI Central and Northern Europe distributes themed services with a specific focus on mid and eastern Europe. Each channel is programed for its local audience in their own language and is available in various formats, including HD, to a range of platforms, such as linear TV and mobile devices.
