"The feedback from our customers is very positive, with many of them emphasizing the intuitive interface and easy-to-use workflow, which enables content delivery via a few simple steps. In regards to UHD content, we are one of the first service providers capable of offering a full workflow chain all the way up to delivery to VOD portals, playout and uplink to our satellites."
