T3Media’s product and service offerings rest on an enterprise-class architecture built for video

T3Media manages millions of assets, metadata, and transcodes at petabyte scale in its proven media Platform. We’ve built a secure, scalable storage infrastructure tied to high capacity bandwidth and a specialized video management application layer. This platform has been tested through millions of dollars in commercial transactions across T3Media’s own Licensing business and those of the portals it powers.

T3Media’s customers are able to tap into this Platform to support storage and backup needs, enable new business models, and support enterprise-scale library management requirements while minimizing capital expenditure and internal staffing.
