Imagine Communications, a market leader in advertising management and video infrastructure solutions serving global TV networks, broadcast stations, multichannel video programming distributors (MVPD), governments and enterprise markets, is showcasing a range of broadcast and content solutions at Convergence India 2015 (21-23 January, Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, India) that focus on the shift from today’s proprietary hardware architectures to the future world of IP-enabled, software-defined technologies.
Jointly exhibiting with CMS Computers Ltd. (stand no. 16), at the 23rd edition of Convergence India themed “Connecting India”, Imagine Communications will demonstrate how it helps broadcasters make this important transition and begin to realise the benefits and cost-savings associated with file-based workflows, virtualisation and monetisation of their content while still preserving their current investments.
“India is one of the world’s largest television markets and has just completed the first phase of the government's plan to digitize its broadcast infrastructure at the end of 2014,” said Joe Khodeir, Senior Vice President of Asia Pacific at Imagine Communications. “Convergence India could not come at a better time as this show plays a significant role in setting the direction for strategic growth and highlights the convergence of voice, video and data across the telcom, mobility, broadcast, cable, satellite, entertainment and IT industries in the country. It gives Imagine Communications the ideal platform to discuss these changing trends and technologies with some of the leaders in these industries.”
