New facility seizes on global connectivity and technology leadership
Singapore, 8 March 2022: Caton Technology, a pioneer in next-generation IP network transport solutions, has moved its corporate headquarters, including its research and development directorate, to Singapore. The move, in March 2022, sees the company leave Hong Kong where it was founded.
Singapore is widely recognised as a centre of excellence in many of the communications technologies on which Caton’s products depend. These include artificial intelligence, immersive media and augmented reality, blockchain architectures and cyber-security. Caton will tap into this dynamic environment as it continues to grow as a major global innovator and facilitator in connectivity.
Caton’s offerings, including the turnkey service the CatonNet Video Platform (CVP) and the underlying architecture in Caton Transport Protocols (CTP), are focused on creating a better-connected world. Singapore as a city is the most connected point in Asia, both physically and digitally, and Caton will also take advantage of the city’s hub status to provide unrivalled service to its customers worldwide.
“We are already transforming the world of video connectivity through our unique and innovative tools,” said Ray Huang, CEO of Caton Technology. “But we certainly do not want to stand still: only by continuing to research and develop new tools can we maintain our global position. Singapore is not just a crossroads, it is an exciting, inspiring, vibrant city of ingenuity and excellence that we are delighted to now call home.”
Caton Technology provides powerful tools to allow production companies and broadcasters to interconnect by sending content over the internet and dedicated data channels at high quality, with low latency and excellent security. The tools are built on widely recognised open standards so can be introduced into any workflow without disruption.
Typical examples would be for contribution circuits, such as sending multiple signals from a live sports event to a broadcast headquarters, and for broadcasters and producers to distribute this same live content around the world. In 2021, for example, the Women’s International Champions Cup, contested by leading soccer teams, was held in Portland in the USA, had its media hub in London, and was delivered to Chinese broadcasters and Sina Weibo by Caton Technology.
