The focus is working with BT on the fast turnaround of VOD content produced from BT’s live broadcasts and we will significantly improve speed and efficiency – providing end customers access to content in a shorter time scale. In addition, with BT’s increased focus on remote working and migration to cloud architecture, the flexibility, resilience and carbon efficiency of our technology make us an excellent and future proofed fit.”
