February 9, 2017 — TORONTO, Ontario: Masstech – the trusted provider of innovative, advanced workflow and media asset management solutions – announced today that respected Indian news broadcaster ABP News Network (“ABP”) has selected Masstech MAM solutions to modernize and streamline its media workflows. Continuing the rapid adoption of Masstech’s powerful and easy-to-use MAM systems in newsrooms around the globe, the ABP order spans all of the broadcaster’s channels and represents Masstech’s largest sale to an India-based news organization to date.
Owned by Anand Baazar Patrika, one of the largest media conglomerates in India, ABP News Network delivers news in multiple Indian languages across four television channels – ABP News, APB Ananda, ABP Majha and ABP Asmita – and online.
