The Alliance for IP Media Solutions has announced four new members
The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) has announced four new members. Juniper Networks has joined as a full member, while Atos, Encompass Digital Media, and sonoVTS have signed on as associate members.
Juniper Networks believes that the media industry shift to IP technology will have a profound positive impact on the quality of the viewer experience, as well as the agility and innovation of media suppliers. Atos SE (Societas Europaea) supports digital transformation in a wide range of business sectors. In the broadcast, publishing, and entertainment industries, Atos helps media companies understand their audiences in order to capitalize on their media assets.
Encompass is a global technology services company focused on supporting TV networks, broadcasters, sports leagues, and digital companies with the delivery of their linear/nonlinear video content across television and digital platforms. SonoVTS provides complete application-specific packages for broadcast and professional video and audio companies, including designing and integrating OB vans, broadcasting studios, and live events for fixed installations or mobile applications.
“The more companies we have working together toward a single standards-based approach to IP transmission, the better,” says Michael Cronk, AIMS board chair. “That’s why we’re so pleased to welcome Juniper Networks, Atos, Encompass, and sonoVTS. We are particularly pleased this month to welcome four companies representing entirely different segments of our industry: an IP networking company, an IT services company, a broadcast services provider, and a systems design and rental company. This illustrates the broad appeal and acceptance of AIMS’ approach.”
