Five and Hulu sign technology deals with Signiant

UK broadcaster Five has selected digital media technology firm Signiant to help it switch from a tape-based to file-based broadcasting system.

The deal will extend to Five’s post-production operations and video on demand service, as well as to its external partners including Red Bee Media.

Five follows the BBC, which introduced Signiant’s digital media distribution management suite last month to provide intranet, satellite or public internet delivery services between its international offices.

In a separate release, Signiant said internet TV site Hulu will use its software to create an automated content aggregation system for the site.
