Imagine Communications, a global leader in video and advertising solutions serving the media and entertainment, multichannel video programming distributors and enterprise markets, today announced that the company will demonstrate the capabilities of its extensive solutions portfolio at SET Expo 2015, the premier business and technology event for broadcast and new media professionals in Latin America. SET Expo 2015 will take place August 25-27 in São Paulo, Brazil.
Imagine Communications will be showcasing its end-to-end portfolio of baseband and next-generation IP products and solutions at the conference and exhibition, as well as presenting on the productivity and efficiency benefits of transitioning playout operations to a cloud-based environment.
Visitors to the Imagine Communications booth (No. 62) will have access to interactive demonstrations of state-of-the-art solutions that address both the current and future requirements of Latin America’s media and entertainment companies. SET Expo 2015 attendees will have their first opportunity to explore many of Imagine Communications’ recent innovations, including virtualized master control functionality, advanced ad management solutions and the most comprehensive cloud video platform in the media industry.
“Broadcasters and media companies in Latin America are facing many of the same challenges as the rest of the world, including intensifying competition, shifting video consumption patterns and the need to increase agility and contain costs to remain relevant in a rapidly evolving environment,” said Pablo Gargiulo, President of Global Sales, Imagine Communications. “Partnering with a supplier with a rich history in the Brazilian and Latin American markets and a long-standing heritage in SDI and baseband, as well as the ability to transition media companies to next-generation environments at their own pace and without disrupting operations or existing buying cycles, is an imperative for navigating the road ahead.”
