4VOD challenge

4VOD handles the content distribution and playout services of many different channels to various locations in Europe including cities like Paris, London, Frankfurt, Berlin, Warsaw, Moscow, Bukarest, and Budapest. All these destinations are connected to the 4VOD networks with the use of satellite infrastructure or leased IP lines. The company wanted to change the current delivery solution for less demanding, and more flexible. The company also put emphasis on the security and reliability of those connections. The company trusted our solution Quickstream™ Node.
