Globecast opens Media Centre in LA

March 24, 2015

Globecast has announced the launch of its new Los Angeles Media Centre, offering broadcasters and content providers a converged workflow to prepare, deliver and playout content to any kind of distribution platform.  The new Media Centre compliments established Globecast facilities in London and Singapore, enabling Globecast to offer a truly one-stop-shop for Media Management, Playout, Satellite and OTT distribution globally.

The new facility, which has been upgraded to include Globecast’s Media Factory for content logistics and converged workflow, brings broadcast and OTT solutions together under one roof, and leverages Globecast’s proven expertise in handling both linear broadcast and on-demand services.

Globecast’s Managing Director in the US, Eddie Ferraro, said, “In this constantly shifting media landscape, cost-efficiency and time to market are key to a successful business model. Broadcasters today have to cover off traditional linear playout as well as VoD and catch-up services across multiple platforms in order to reach their viewers. Our new Media Centre enables them to do exactly this from right here in the heart of LA. Bringing our Media Factory concept to the US will enable us to offer tried and tested approaches from the world of industry to media management and combine it with our unique heritage to deliver effective solutions.”
