Media

The technology requirements of media organisations are perhaps more complex and fast-moving than in any other sector, so:

  • you don't just need a network, you need a network that you know will deliver high speed, high quality content
  • you don't just need IT and communications expertise, you need it specific to your industry and to your organisation's individual needs and ambitions, and
  • you don't just need a solution for today and tomorrow, you need a solution that will adapt to - and capitalise on - the next transformation, the next generation of media requirements - and the one after that.

Colt provides mission critical solutions that underpin the business performance of hundreds of media organisations across Europe, from the provision of dedicated broadcast networks, and storage of video content for broadcasters, to the deployment of a complete information delivery platform for advertisers and publishers.

Our media customer base currently includes Eurosport, TF1, Canal+, Berlinale, France 24, Globelynx, Associated Press  Bild and many more. They benefit from:

  • an integrated network supporting all types of video formats and IT protocols
  • combined network-based and IT managed services
  • an end-to-end managed platform to support your digital asset management
  • consultancy expertise through a team of media sector specialists, and
  • reliable customer support
