Starz has selected Tandberg Television’s next-generation MediaPath Secure Content Delivery System to deliver content for its on-demand services.

The upgrade gives Starz DVB-S2 satellite delivery, as well as other enhanced features, allowing Starz to deliver more content, and to deliver it more quickly.

The company’s on-demand content is currently delivered from Starz to its affiliates using TandbergTV’s Classic MediaPath system. A migration path is provided by the new MediaPath system, ensuring no service interruption for Starz and its affiliates. Since MediaPath now supports MPEG-4 AVC, as well as virtually any content file and metadata format, Starz may support more delivery methods to its affiliates and offer a wider selection of content to its subscribers, according to the company.  

The new system provides proactive monitoring to ensure content is flowing throughout the delivery system. And an enhanced user interface provides easy access to the added functions and increased options available with the new MediaPath system.
