Arqade makes cloud-based delivery easy

Offering a lower cost and less complex alternative to conventional physical content interchanges, Arqade brings together originators and recipients in a single, online global ecosystem.

Rightsholders and channel owners now have an easy way to syndicate their content while retaining complete control over access.

Broadcasters and TV platform operators can rapidly discover, review and request public packages to create new channels and fill live event schedules.

The workflows are automated and video is delivered in the right format for target regions and platforms. It’s all managed end-to-end for quality of service and availability by Arqiva.

This is one-to-many content distribution made simple.

Delivering content from anywhere to everywhere

Arqade creates a global ecosystem for content and platform destinations. This is how it works:

  1. Originators create their content packages and channel bouquets
  2. The content is made available through the Arqade platform (with contribution via cloud, satellite or fibre)
  3. Broadcasters and TV platforms discover, review and select packages
  4. Content is automatically processed in the required formats and protocols
  5. Channels and/or live events packages are then distributed everywhere to audiences

Arqade is delivered on a self-service 'pay per use' model for both originators and distributors. Charges only apply when the selected packages and contributions are distributed. 

The platform is fully managed and monitored by Arqiva with access management and security built-in.
