Content management and transmission company TSI has launched two services for production companies that are looking to move their programming online.

It has spent£200,000 on dishes, Niagara encoders and infrastructure to enable the down-linking of TV content from satellites so it can be repurposed for the web.

TSI has also invested in a Pharos Mediator platform to provide digital asset management services.

Managing director Nick Doff said: “Most of our customers create content for TV and the web and these services are becoming essential for them.”

The company already provides the downlink service to Rocks & Co, producer of the Jewellery Channel. The satellites are pointed at SES Astra and Intelsat and can create web content for any programmes carried on them.

TSI is providing the beta-launched asset management service, entitled “The Vault”, to an unnamed distribution company. The offering allows customers to view their library online and distribute content in file format.

The company has installed a 100Mbps fast internet connection so it can distribute material directly from TSI rather than via Telecity, which currently acts as a host server to the company.

TSI relaunched as a transmission and content company last year having gone into administration in 2006. Doff said: “We restarted in March 2007 with two people and the team is now 20.”
