iKO Media Group is an end-to-end media service partner for content owners and broadcasters who provide tailor-made solutions with dedicated services to a vast range of local and global networks. These services include playout services, content distribution, OTT & IP services as well as occasional use. Their state-of-the-art teleport in Rome has more than 20 satellite dishes for transmitting and receiving. Uplink services are provided to broadcasters to distribute programming to telco and cable television headends, to satellite television facilities, to mobile operators, or directly to consumers over satellite (DTH) or over the top (OTT).
"We're very pleased to have iKO Media Group as our long-standing customer," stated Thomas Gunkel, Market Director Broadcast at Skyline Communications. "iKO has been using DataMiner successfully in their operations for a long time, and we are now glad to see that they've very easily transitioned to their operators working from home overnight without any impact on operations. With DataMiner managing multiple teleport sites across Europe, Africa and Asia, operators can access the DataMiner platform from anywhere. In this business, network and content security are of the highest importance, and DataMiner allows you to rest assured of both even if systems are operated remotely."
There are many other evolving and emerging trends, such as the war on talent and changing working habits, that make it obvious that agile collaboration and remote work in a complex operation are very important.
