Burbank, CA (October 6th, 2015) — Deluxe Entertainment Services Group Inc. (Deluxe) announced today that Deluxe OnDemandTM OneWorkflowTM for 4K UHD scored 4.0 Diamonds, ranking one of the highest for products and solutions available in the broadband industry, in the Broadband Technology Report (BTR), Diamond Technology Reviews (“the Diamonds”). The panel of judges, which reviewed 47 different products, was comprised of the industry’s top engineers, SCTE and national board members.
Deluxe OnDemand’s OneWorkflow operates as an end-to-end cloud-based service to support MVPDs strategy to (a) offer exceptional high quality 4K UHD content optimized to address bandwidth, storage, and capacity constraints for multiscreen distribution, (b) do so without investing in additional infrastructure and resource expense, (c) easily integrate with existing content delivery workflows, and (d) quickly bring new services to market. The solution is commercially deployed in North America.
“The review this year was highly competitive; the judges saw a lot of innovative products. They found the Deluxe OnDemand OneWorkflow solution provided unprecedented functionality and practicality,” said Tim Hermes, Group Publisher of BTR. “Its ability to enable the industry to rapidly and broadly support higher quality next generation 4K UHD viewing experiences in a highly efficient and cost- effective manner certainly appears to make it cutting-edge in its class of products.”
“Our mission at Deluxe is to be forward-looking and invest in advanced technologies and workflows that enable our customers to focus on delivering premium content and services and not infrastructure expense,” said Todd Collart, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Deluxe OnDemand. “We are honored that the Diamonds has recognized our efforts and believe OneWorkflow is a unique product in its ability to source, transform, and deliver any content, in any format, distributed to any device, paving the way for greater 4K UHD streaming.”
