Customers can now seamlessly cross-connect with Equinix’s global facilities on demand, facilitating the efficient distribution in the EMCEE’s robust ecosystem comprised of media and entrainment businesses, as well as network and cloud providers. EMCEE’s backbone, Hibernia Networks’ low latency fiber optic network, allows for fast and unrestricted gathering and distribution of media content to and from Equinix data centers.

“This cloud ecosystem is paramount for all technology-driven content production companies,” states Wes Hanemayer, VP of Video Services at Hibernia Networks. “Our focus is to bring next-generation video transport technology to the marketplace that benefits our customers. We’re excited about this new milestone in our well-established partnership with Equinix aimed at better serving the evolving needs of M&E customers.”

By leveraging EMCEE, media and entertainment customers are able to leverage the state-of-the-art data and video transmission services on demand between Equinix data centers and key customer studios, as well as other facilities. The digital IT infrastructure ensures that the ever-growing demand for OTT applications often faced by such customers is met no matter the bandwidth capacity required today or in the future.
