MediaKind, a global media technology leader, today announced the launch of its new virtual experience, a unique portal that invites the world to explore and engage with the full range of MediaKind content, anytime, anywhere. The MediaKind Virtual Experience invites visitors to walk through a simulated video wall tunnel and enter the heart of a futuristic virtual venue where they can discover MediaKind’s media universe through a wide range of interactive offerings.
Building on MediaKind’s culture of continuous innovation, the portal includes a range of rich content that visitors can engage with, including latest news announcements, demonstrations, educational videos, presentations, webinars, whitepapers, application papers, products and solutions. Visitors will also be able to interact with and experience MediaKind’s latest products and solutions, including next-generation broadcast solution (Aquila Broadcast), enhanced Advertising portfolio (PRISMA Core and PRISMA Edge), and ‘one-stop-shop’ solution for rapid delivery of operator OTT services (Aquila Broadcast, now on Google Cloud Platform) – all launched in April. More content and innovations will be continuously added to MediaKind’s Virtual Experience.
