Hurricanes (and other natural disasters) can wreak havoc on valuable content if you aren’t properly prepared. Do you have a reliable contingency plan in place to safeguard your assets – ad revenue, signal continuity, carriage? There is much to be considered when choosing a service provider to manage your disaster recovery needs. What type of protection do you need? Playout? Transmission? Content?  Encompass is uniquely positioned to provide backup services from any of its geographically diverse facilities located throughout the U.S. and the world – Atlanta, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Stamford, Buenos Aires, London and Singapore. Using our Global Interconnect (GI), an Encompass-managed fiber network that connects all of its facilities, we are able to transport content seamlessly and without loss of service. Our fleet of US-based satellite uplink trucks and live remote site and studio production services can provide much needed coverage during the storm.   Like most people that work and live along the coast, Encompass has preparedness procedures in place and are ready to initiate those plans at any given time. In preparation for a potentially devastating storm, our management, operations and engineering teams focus on a worst-case scenario and plan accordingly. This enables us to protect our dedicated clients’ networks during a natural disaster. Encompass utilizes our existing infrastructure of owned and operated facilities, each of which has standalone UPS and generator power, to support our clients throughout an event. With state-of-the-art transmission equipment and a highly experienced engineering staff, we remain a first-responder for both anticipated and unforeseen emergencies.
