Engaging with Tibus for Catch-up TV and Video-On-Demand: order of play (between 2 and 5 working days)

  1. Client contacts Tibus normally via email and describes the event or channel they are establishing
  2. Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) exchanged if required
  3. Design technical platform to service the audience expected
  4. Agree budgets (normally set-up charge + usage based element on audience numbers)
  5. Test feeds established
  6. Service handover and commissioning

Why Tibus? Why do our clients choose us over a global CDN?

  1. Experience. We were previously owned by a TV company, so we know TV programs. We can call on specialist broadcast expertise where we need it but most of all, we know Internet transmission - we have been doing that since 1999.
  2. Flexible. Most CDNs will accept ingest feeds in only certain formats. All CDNs have certain limitations in terms of the streams that they will serve. In Tibus we allow any format, to any device - true flexibility
  3. Available. We are a local company, so there are no timezone frustrations in play. Tibus' senior engineers are available when you are working in BST.
  4. Responsive. We don't work with the massive Global Media brands because we are simply not of that size. This means that all our customers are important to us. Those customers get an exceptional level of service, despite them not being one of the 'household names' in world media.
  5. Cost-effective. Our overheads are relatively low, so our price points tend to be very attractive to our customers.
