As a specialist in the field of management and processing solutions we can rapidly and flawlessly build, digitize, encode, archive and distribute video content. To service our customers United has developed their own content processing platform named LOOMS.
LOOMS utilizes the perfect balance between automated workflows and human contact. As a result we can process content for our customers with the shortest time to market and lowest margin of error, making United Digital Services a high performing department that delivers as it promises. Our innovative and customized workflows are, for example, the base of various Video On Demand platforms to which most households in the Netherlands and Belgium are connected.
Quality of service is part of our DNA - from customer satisfaction to customer delight is the vision on which we built long-term relationships with our customers, acting as their natural partner. United offers fully transparent and both up- and down scalable services. For setting up a well-structured digital archive, United is the perfect partner.
Besides servicing our customers we add value to our partnerships through our innovation drive. We are used to investing in technical innovations ahead of (creative) industry demands. United has to uphold our top of the industry reputation and must be able to deliver the latest technology solutions. The United Digital Services team can operate fully independent in servicing our customers utilizing our own video encoding specialists, digital solutions architects and software development team.
