MediaKind Universe enables content owners, broadcasters and service providers with the best of media technology to evolve, adapt and shift to the new consumption habits for everyone, everywhere. 

Arun Bhikshesvaran, Chief Marketing Officer, MediaKind says: “The MediaKind Universe is about people, content and how it is consumed. As people engage with media on a variety of devices at locations of their choice, around the clock, our customers have a number of routes or trajectories they can take to deliver and monetize these new consumption habits. The MediaKind Universe presents a set of solutions that match these trajectories and enable the smooth flow of content towards the center of the media universe – consumers.” 

The MediaKind Universe consists of five solutions - Cygnus, Aquila, Pictor, Orion and Vega. Each of these best in class solutions addresses a specific trajectory, which manifests in the real-world as defined workflows and pose requirements on quality, security, latency, time- and device-shift capabilities. 

  • Contribution and Distribution – Cygnus enables content providers, broadcasters and service providers to securely and reliably acquire, backhaul and distribute the highest quality content anywhere, ensuring viewers around the world never miss a minute of the action.
