Managed Broadcast Services Special Report: Knowledge Partner Interview with Red Bee Media

As part of Digital Studio's Knowledge Partnership for the special report on Managed Broadcast Services, we invited Houssam Al Khaled from Red Bee Media Middle East and Richard Cranefield, Head of Portfolio for Playout at Red Bee Media, to talk about the benefits of using managed services in broadcasting to manage success during this time of change and how the Red Bee Media way of working has led to innovations like the world’s first software only uncompressed playout deployment.


In an ever-changing media and television landscape, agility, flexibility and innovation are essential survival skills for broadcasters and media companies. Staying relevant means keeping up with changes in viewer behaviour as well as advances in the technologies available to deliver content, which often involves heavy investments and change management.

Companies like Red Bee Media are focusing their business model on addressing these challenges, delivering managed services to broadcasters, media companies and content providers, letting the customers focus on content curation and audience satisfaction, rather than the minutia of everyday operations. In addition, customers don’t have to make heavy investments following technology shifts, changing viewer behaviours and increased complexity. Instead they can benefit from managed services including relevant technology updates and new ways of working – effectively outsourcing agility, flexibility and innovation at the pace of the development of the media landscape.
