Digital Media Centre (DMC) has added A+E Networks-owned channel Blaze Italy to new virtualised playout platform.
Blaze, which is available exclusively via Sky in Italy, is the third channel that A+E Networks has managed with DMC in Italy after Crime+Investigation and History.
“DMC’s new fully virtualised platform has allowed us to increase our presence in the region, enabling us to deliver a wider range of dynamic, compelling, higher quality content to specific audiences,” said Sherin Salvetti, general manager of A+E Networks Italy.
Blaze is distributed using DMC’s fully managed European fibre network. Its playout platform is designed to help broadcasters and content providers shrink time to market, reduce hardware requirements and keep control over their content.
