Dayport has secured an order from the Australian News Channel (ANC) - based in Sydney, Australia - for its PUBLISH solution with additional Data Centre Services and Consumer Player.
The solution for ANC, (regionally known as SKY NEWS -- www.skynews.com) will acquire content from ANC?s Quantel production platform and data from ENPS. The content will then be transferred to Dayport?s datacentre where ANC will then manage, publish and distribute news clips to the SKY NEWS web site, their Podcast and also to their mobile partners. Dayport will also provide a customised Flash video player and integrate it into the existing SKY NEWS web site. ANC will have full control over the design and functionality of the web video player and be able to control the consumer experience.
?We are extremely pleased to be working with the team at the Australian News Channel?, said Andy Ioannou, Managing Director at Dayport. ?ANC is our first customer in Australia. We believe that ANC recognised the significant benefits which our PUBLISH solution will bring to their operation, in terms of assisting ANC in developing their business and maintaining their position as leader in supplying News to the Australasian market.?
ANC Chief Executive Officer Angelos Frangopoulos said, ?SKY NEWS? online and mobile services are critical to our future. SKY NEWS believes Dayport can help us stay at the forefront of News delivery in this area and we look forward to building our relationship. We are developing our services across all digital mediums to increase our competitiveness and provide consumers with what they want, when they want it, and how they want it.?
