thePlatform is showcasing its cloud-based Unified Ingest Service for pay-TV operators' multiscreen video offerings at IBC next week.

The service centrally manages how video and its associated metadata is ingested and managed on set-top boxes (STBs) and other devices. It's available as a standalone service or as part of a broader suite of video publishing services powered by thePlatform's mpx system.

The mpx acts as a cloud-based, central hub for managing, monetising and distributing shows, movies, and other videos. Customers include: the majority of the top 50 most-watched cable pay-TV programming networks, including USA Network, History Channel, A+E, E!, Syfy, Travel Channel Media, and others; top broadcasters' properties from CBS, FOX, NBCUniversal, CBC, Bell Media, Shaw Media and others.
