Corus launches Quay Media Services
Corus Entertainment of Toronto has created a new broadcast technology service subsidiary called Quay Media Services. Its services will include linear television broadcast, signal origination, master control play out and delivery, production facilities, media asset management and encoding or transcoding for domestic and international customers. Corus has also acquired closed captioning company FastFile Media Services and will add its services to the new firm.
"Corus Quay has been built for scale with a fully-integrated digital infrastructure and the technical architecture to significantly expand our footprint in the media technology and distribution space," said Scott Dyer, chief technology officer at Corus. "Our acquisition of FastFile is a great complement to our business and capitalizes on the growing demand for closed captioning and described video both domestically and abroad."
