ANP replaces legacy network to distribute news and photos

Mainstream Data and Algemeen Nederlands Persbureau (ANP), the national news agency for The Netherlands, are teaming up to distribute news stories, photographs and graphics files to its newspaper and media customers throughout The Netherlands. ANP provides news coverage for the Dutch daily newspapers, radio and television stations and Internet portals.

ANP selected Mainstream to replace its legacy distribution network. Mainstream will use a combination of its satellite and Internet delivery products including the Medias Server, the DVB+ satellite receiver, and Mainstream's new MediasFTP service. The Medias Server, which is a Mainstream proprietary application created specifically to integrate satellite and Internet delivery, employs automatic failover functionality to switch between satellite and Internet feeds and to guarantee data delivery to end-user sites. The newly introduced MediasFTP service uses industry standard and proprietary-addressing codes to deliver narrowly targeted content to individual sites employing standard FTP transmission protocol with 24-hour distribution network monitoring by Mainstream.
