We look forward to connecting with other industry experts to find new ways to streamline operations and maintain our competitive edge."
MX1 will provide attendees with demonstrations of its managed media services in the DPP Club Lounge area at the Technology Leaders' Briefing. MX1's managed media services are used by leading media companies around the world and support all aspects of video operations, enabling media companies to focus on what they do best: creating the most amazing content. From content aggregation to preparation, packaging, management, and delivery, MX1's media services ensure the highest quality for live and VOD content on every screen and can be customized to fit the needs of any media company.
As a member of the DPP, MX1 now has a unique opportunity to influence industry specifications and shape major industry change.
