StarHub Receives VOD Content via SmartJog

SmartJog, the global leader in managed digital delivery services, announced that StarHub, Singapore's leading pay TV operator, is using SmartJog for its file-based workflow to receive content for its newly launched cable VOD platform.

SmartJog digitally delivers US studio content directly to StarHub. Once the files are received at StarHub, they are ingested into a local editing system and then made available for download by consumers as early as 24 hours after the initial US Broadcast. With live tracking of every transfer on SmartJog’s management interface, StarHub has access to traffic reports at all times, followed by automated delivery e-mail notifications.

“SmartJog provides us with speed, security, and cost-effective delivery which are all vitally important in enabling us to offer our customers with their favorite content in a timely manner, whilst ensuring that security of content is not compromised,” says David Storrie, StarHub’s Head of Integrated Network Engineering.

StarHub’s implementation of the system strengthens SmartJog’s presence in the region as SmartJog has long established itself throughout Asia-Pacific within the television and post production community.

“We are pleased to be working with StarHub for the movement of content to Singapore,” says Joe DiBianca, Vice President at SmartJog, “VOD deliveries have been a natural extension of our services across Asia, and further displays a need for efficient file-based delivery solutions for VOD platforms within this part of the world.”

As broadcasters, cable operators and telecom providers extend into VOD/IPTV services, SmartJog offers solutions for clients looking for quick, reliable and economically feasible file-based delivery workflows. SmartJog also delivers VOD content to operators in France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Netherlands, Poland, and Portugal.
