RR Media Unveils Global Media Services Platform, solaRR

Virtualized, Scalable and Accessible Multi-Screen Services From Anywhere in the World

AIRPORT CITY BUSINESS PARK, ISRAEL--(Marketwired - Apr 13, 2015) - RR Media (NASDAQ: RRM), a leading provider of global digital media services to the broadcast industry, is presenting its virtualized and scalable digital media services platform, solaRR, for the first time at the NAB Show 2015. solaRR manages RR Media's full range of digital media services, including content preparation, channel playout, asset management and multi-screen delivery on a secure cloud-based platform. This enables customers to ingest, access, prepare, manage, track and deliver content from anywhere in the world.

Now that solaRR is operational, RR Media's global media centers in the US, UK and the Middle East play an intrinsic part of the media services platform by providing its virtualized infrastructure based on robust IP network capability. solaRR's digital media capabilities provide a wide range of services, including playout facilities, that are able to be established on-site, at customers' premises in very short lead times, allowing customers to have on-site control and local access to the full suite of services. These services and facilities are fully supported by RR Media's team of industry experts, allowing content owners to focus on the creation of exciting content and business models with opportunities for monetizing their digital assets.

Mathieu Sibille, CEO of iConcerts, said, "We're excited by the possibilities available to us for managing and optimizing our content. We don't need to invest in new infrastructure or equipment to keep up-to-date with the latest digital media technology and can launch additional services quickly and easily. With solaRR, we're able to repurpose our TV content to multiple screens, expanding our global audiences."

Commenting on the announcement, RR Media CMO, Elad Manishviz, said, "Scalability, flexibility, openness and easy global access are four key elements in RR Media's offering. Customers can scale up as big and small as required, ingest and manage content easily and effectively and choose either a fully managed or self-serve model. Our aim is to enable customers to achieve more from their content, and help them grow their business."

Manishviz continued, "This is just the first stage. solaRR is constantly evolving and we'll be announcing new capabilities in all areas, later in the year."

RR Media will be exhibiting at the NAB Show held at the Las Vegas Convention Center. See more of RR Media's rich digital media services capabilities at NAB 2015, at Booth SU5924 from April 13-16, 2015.
