“The Mediejukebox is a complex product where many different parts need to collaborate, such as a large quantity of media, software and hardware and network. Updating the media might involve distribution of 15 Gb during one night which make heavy demands on the capacity of the system. The solution integrates new technology of both administration and distribution of media that satisfies the demands of the media suppliers as well as the demands of the users of the Mediejukebox. The system is through its central management and administration very efficient.” – Christer Andersson, Förlagschef FörlagEtt
