August 23, 2012
By Colin Mann
MobiTV, the global enabler of delivery of live and on-demand TV Everywhere, has revealed that it is to expand its EMEA operations to London as part of its continuing growth in the region. The new hub will be managed and operated by MobiTV Co-founder and President Paul Scanlan.
“Since the company’s start over ten years ago, Paul Scanlan has been an unmistakable driving force behind the business,” said Charlie Nooney, CEO of MobiTV. “We are excited by the opportunities for true TV Everywhere in EMEA and internationally. As our growth accelerates, Paul is the right person to lead our expansion outside of the US.”
From the company’s new London office, Scanlan will continue to manage and grow all aspects of the company’s sales and partnership activity in EMEA, as momentum for TV Everywhere is building in Europe and other regions.
Recently, the company announced further upgrades to its TV everywhere proposition with the introduction of its nDVR (network DVR) – a cloud-based solution that addresses digital rights management issues geographically. MobiTV has also extended the scope of its datacenter to manage all types of motion picture content for international multi-screen delivery of high-quality services.
“The EMEA markets have demonstrated strong growth potential for IPTV and TV Everywhere,” said Scanlan. “I look forward to MobiTV playing a key role in enabling the development and adoption of TV Everywhere deployments in EMEA and other global markets.”
