Who we are

The future of broadcasting

We broadcast to a range of devices

MediaHub Australia is a constantly expanding,
'new technology' driven playout and content delivery company.
We're currently providing over 260 Broadcast and live Streaming services for both Television and Radio to audiences locally, nationally and internationally

MediaHub was originally established 'by Broadcasters, for Broadcasters' to tailor and manage channel playout services. But in the time since start-up, MediaHub has successfully grown and diversified the list of services to the Australian and International Broadcast industries.
Our collective Broadcast knowledge and experience has afforded us the unique ability to identify shifting trends in content delivery, with an agile and agnostic approach to technology, to tailor the right solution for the client, not bend the client around the technology.

Among our current service offerings are Media Asset Management, Managed Archive Storage, VOD & Transcoding Services, Audio Description & Closed Caption Insertion, Virtualisation, Pass-Through Channel capabilities, 24/7 Master Control & NOC facilities, live Television and Radio Streaming, in-house Coding solutions and more.
If you think there's something we don't currently offer, let us know. We're happy to scope, develop and build based on any client needs.

MediaHub's Backbone

The MediaHub Channel Management team are committed to the long term growth of our business by providing a high quality of service and adding real value back to our clients.
Every new client gets assigned their own MediaHub Channel Manager as a liaison. As with the rest of the Management team, the Channel Manager works to a 24/7 availability for both staff and clients. Meaning, at any hour of the day or night, week day, weekend or public holiday, the Channel Manger is always available to take calls, resolve issues or answer any staff or client related questions.

Our Senior Supervisors and Shift Leaders are rostered daily to deal directly with staff, troubleshoot issues, work on special events or coordinate any 'breakaway' programming requirements for clients.
The Senior Supervisors and Shift Leaders provide guidance and direction for the Shift Operators, and are also a direct 24/7 onsite client contact point for questions, queries, late changes and emergency situations.

We believe our various MediaHub Shift Operators (On-Air Coordinators, Media Mangers, Master Control and NOC Operators) control the most complex operational Broadcast system in the industry. The daily application of their skills and operational knowledge is what keeps our error rates low, and client channels on-air. The professionalism of our Operators, along with our dedicated in-house training school (MediaHub Broadcast Training & Development), ensure that we are constantly honing and refining our internal skill sets. Good for our clients, good for our Operators, and good for our business.
