The Associated Press Selects Nextologies to deliver its global Live Choice video product
September 15, 2019 | Toronto, Canada
The Associated Press, the world’s most trusted global news network, has awarded broadcast technology solutions provider Nextologies Limited the distribution of its Live Choice live video product to digital and broadcast customers across the globe.
“Our vision at Nextologies is to be the most trusted broadcast services provider in signal transport worldwide,” explains Nextologies’ CEO Sasha Zivanovic. “That means finding ways to help broadcasters focus on creating content, while we take care of the technical support in the back-end – from providing hardware, online portal management to reliable signal transport globally.”
Nextologies and AP designed and integrated their technology systems to provide users with a simple interface to book and activate live video transmissions and integrate them into their own production environment by using the Nextologies’ proprietary NXT-4 hardware and software.
The project was rolled out over a four-month period after comprehensive design work.
“Nextologies’ solutions have allowed AP to provide its broadcast clients with an all-in-one device that delivers reliable and error-corrected video over the internet or private fiber lines,” said Matthew Durbin, deputy director of global video operations at AP. “They also provide multiple one-time setup options for streaming video delivery and social media integration.”
“Bringing Nextologies in as our solutions provider has simplified how AP customers access our live video news feeds and alleviated any pain points,” said Darren Long, director of international video platforms at AP. “We now have easy setup and robust delivery for all our customers, which range from traditional broadcasters to emerging digital services.”
