About SDVI

Optimizing Media Supply Chains – Transforming Modern Media

The Challenge

Over years, media organizations have evolved in to large facility operators in order to meet the ever changing demands of media delivery. Every time they have to deliver content to a new platform, they need a new system. Every time advances are made in formats (think SD to HD, tape to file, or now, HD to UHD), they need to upgrade their systems. And every time this happens, their focus on content is gradually eroded as they spend more time and money worrying about the infrastructure they operate.

SDVI brings supply chain thinking and modern technical approaches to the space, backed by decades of experience in the media and entertainment technology sectors.
