Eurovision Services (ES), the first-choice media services provider for media organizations and sports federations around the world, and NEP Group, the leading worldwide outsourced technical production partner to premier content producers of live sports and entertainment, have announced a new partnership in the U.S.

As part of NEP’s Media Solutions business, NEP’s media asset management platform Mediabank will move into the Eurovision Americas Inc. facility in Washington, D.C. The new partnership allows the two companies to offer a set of integrated media management and distribution solutions to broadcasters and rights holders, enabling clients to quickly and seamlessly search, review, collaborate and share content across platforms.

Mediabank, an award-winning, cloud-based toolbox with an intuitive, user-friendly interface, allows clients to access their media files from anywhere, anytime. Mediabank has powered major events across the globe and is proud to now support clients like ESPN in the U.S. ES will offer connectivity and transmission services at its D.C. facility through its Eurovision Global Network, allowing U.S. clients to manage their workflows and media content files faster and more efficiently through Mediabank.

“We’re delighted to partner with NEP and have them as a tenant in our D.C. facilities, where we are providing NEP with bi-directional transmission services to support the launch of their Mediabank service in the United States,” said Roch Pellerin, President of Eurovision Americas Inc.

“Our partnership with Eurovision helps to ensure that the power of Mediabank is available to the clients and markets we serve in the U.S.”, said Jay Deutsch, Director, U.S. Media Solutions for NEP. “The D.C. facility we built enables off-premise live ingest capability to Mediabank and sets the stage for highly efficient ways of working with live content. This is the first of many solutions I expect to come out of this next-generation production facility. We couldn’t be more excited about it.”
