The Actus platform meets all of our post-broadcast requirements today, while offering us room to grow in the future.”

MediaHub provides hundreds of broadcast and live streaming services to television audiences locally, nationally, and internationally. With the Actus best-of-breed platform, the broadcaster can perform a wide range of tasks including compliance and logging, content monetization, competitive analysis, technical monitoring, alerts, AI, and ad detection. Initially, MediaHub will use the Actus platform to record and store 18 proxy channels for 132 services, leveraging the Actus transcoding feature and three native TS totaling 650 GB per day. In addition, MediaHub will use production solution metrics provided by Actus.

“We’re excited to partner with MediaHub Australia, a technology-driven company that is at the forefront of the broadcast industry,” said Sima Levy, CEO of Actus Digital. “At the heart of MediaHub’s new headend, the Actus platform will drive workflow efficiency and enable increased monetization.
