Encompass celebrates launch of 100th channel from Singapore facility

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

Encompass Digital Media now has the largest independent playout and Teleport facility in Asia, boosting Singapore’s goal to become a global media hub.

Encompass Digital Media has 24/7/365 Teleport facilities and technical personnel in USA, UK and Singapore.

Encompass Digital Media has 24/7/365 Teleport facilities and technical personnel in USA, UK and Singapore.

Encompass had aimed to reach the 100-channel (from Singapore) origination/transmission milestone in 24 months. Instead it achieved the target six months earlier – within 18 months.

“Over the next few months, we plan to add seven more channels, making it easier for content owners to expand their reach into Asia on multiple platforms,” divulged Deepakjit Singh, managing director for Encompass Asia.

In the last 12 months, it has launched one channel every three weeks.

In a climate when players in the industry are folding or struggling with difficult economic outlooks, Deepakjit Singh is brimming with confidence that Encompass will “ride the wave” of growth through its aggressive embracing of digitalisation.

Deepakjit is the Managing Director of Asia for Encompass Digital Media, one of the world’s top digital media services providers and a leader in global satellite and terrestrial connectivity.

“Providing our clients with the ability to expand their business models and further monetize their assets through the vast range of innovative services we offer is what differentiates us from our competitors,” said Deepakjit.

The company’s mission-critical media services provides broadcasters, cable networks, corporations and government agencies with customized solutions for the management and distribution of content globally.

Currently, the Singapore facilities is capable of supporting up to 250 channels, but the constant upgrading of infrastructure ensures that it will always have more than enough capacity to cater to rapid growth.

Encompass is investing US$20 million over five years into its Singapore operations for technology and infrastructure upgrading, employee up-skilling and community engagement initiatives.

Almost half of that has already been invested on technology upgrading in order to increase productivity and to reduce the marginal cost of launching a new channel.

This enables Singapore to compete effectively with China and India.

In the last two years, the number of channels that Encompass Asia provides end-to-end services to has increased threefold.
