AAPT has partnered with UK broadcaster, BT Media and Broadcast, to launch the service in Australia.
AAPT CEO David Yuile said the media industry in Australia was still evolving as technology was driving new consumer behaviour and global content became increasingly accessible.
“Strong partnerships are essential to complement AAPT’s Media Connect service and to satisfy the requirements of the global industry. BT Media and Broadcast, with its long standing reputation, capabilities and reach provided the ideal partner for us.”
VP of Global Sales and Marketing for BT Media and Broadcast, Mark Wilson-Dunn, said he was very excited by the new partnership with AAPT for the provision of media and broadcast network services to the “fast-growing Australian market.”
“Our ground breaking MPLS-based IP media network, purpose designed for the broadcast of live television and large media files, is growing at some pace around the world, particularly in the Asian and U.S markets.
“Joining this ecosystem will literally open up a world of opportunities for Australasian media businesses,” Wilson-Dunn said.
