Over its 10 year history SmartJog has built a global network of close to 200 broadcasters representing over 700 stations connected , with a reputation for providing state-of-the-art server based distribution. Movie studios in particular have relied on SmartJog to deliver long form programming to broadcasters and post production houses, leveraging its aggressive approach to fighting piracy and industry leading technology, including delivery optimization of extremely large files, its integration of transcoding and file repurposing into broadcaster workflows.

DG and SmartJog have jointly developed a software package that allows integration of DG’s ADS platform into SmartJog’s long form content delivery solutions, creating an industry leading platform leveraging the best in cloud computing and edge-server technology. The collaboration allows the two firms to leverage their complementary strengths, notably DG’s expertise in digital advertising workflow paired with SmartJog’s relationships with the international broadcast community developed through its delivery of over 50,000 hours of content monthly.
