Centers continued, “igolgi has been a trusted partner to getting not only the baseline infrastructure in place but also the monitoring and other automation systems to deliver a reliable nationwide service in a very cost-effective manner. Igolgi, with their products and in-depth experience with video encoding and broadcast infrastructures that has helped us create a reliable distribution network”.

“Bridge News, with over 78 OTA television stations, almost 90 affiliates, and two networks, is leading the way in creating highly efficient OTA distribution with their original news and sports content, and their use of leading edge – but proven – technology.  We are delighted to be a trusted partner and play a pivotal role in getting their systems on air”, said Dr. Kumar Ramaswamy, President, and co-founder of igolgi Inc.
