Broadcast

Viewer is king, quality is key and speed is a pre-requisite

Broadcasters are striving to deliver quality audio and video content in real-time to increasingly global audiences. Data transport at every stage of the broadcast lifecycle demands resiliency, low latency and scalability. Meeting commercial targets without compromising on technical quality requires robust Network design for transmission.

Satisfying viewer experience requires low latency

Low jitter & no packet loss

In an increasingly social-media savvy era, viewers are quick to voice dissatisfaction. Seamless transmission requires data networks which are designed to reduce jitter, packet delay and packet loss. Invariably, high jitter results in increased latency and increased packet loss, which in turn results in interrupted and poor quality transmission.

Resilient, scalable and low latency Broadcast networks

Our UK wide Network is designed with resiliency, scalability and low latency in mind. Our VPLS Layer 2 IP Network - the UK's first 100GigE core Network - allows Broadcasters to connect multiple broadcast transmission streams using a single circuit in real-time. Our Network supports multiple interfaces including ASI, SD/HD-SDI and uni- and bi-directional streams with end-to-end Quality of Service.

We work with you to ensure your Network is capable of delivering uncompressed or compressed feeds, enables tapeless file sharing to speed up contribution and distribution and ensures real-time delivery of uncompressed content to the right location at the right time.

Don't just take our word for it

“We chose Exponential-e, as they have been a partner since May 2006 and the service has been excellent. The technology delivers and their teams ensure we enjoy a good working relationship with more than satisfactory service levels. They already had a quality broadcast Network in place, so it seemed a natural choice for the latest deployment.”

Don't just take our word for it

"The fact that Exponential-e could bundle Internet and WAN connectivity in with our video connection saved us a substantial amount on infrastructure costs and enabled us to optimise network usage and maximise efficiency through flexible allocation of bandwidth across all our services."
