Orange-owned specialist content distribution company Globecast has formed a strategic partnership with New York City-based Brklyn-Media, provider of virtualised media management and infrastructure services.

Eddie Ferraro, MD Globecast Americas, commented “With this partnership, both companies can offer an expanded suite of services, full one-stop shop solutions, including access to the two largest television markets in the US – New York and Los Angeles. The combination of Brklyn-Media’s OTT capabilities and Globecast’s media supply chain and cloud playout services is just one example of the complementary services that can be provided to customers. This partnership also offers geographic and product line diversity and allows for disaster recovery redundancies.”

Brklyn-Media founder, Rick Phelps, added: “Seeking to scale our media and technology products and services, it became clear that a more strategic partnership with Globecast would benefit both parties and, more importantly, our growing customer base. Brklyn-Media and Globecast provide a full range of media services, wrapped around a commitment to excellence, that complement each other. We couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity this partnership offers, particularly as the industry continues its extraordinary digital transformation.”

Ferraro continued: “As individuals, many of us have long, professional histories so there’s a huge amount of trust between us, far from always the case in strategic partnerships. The industry is increasingly dynamic, not only in the range of services required, but also in terms of being able to quickly identify a customer’s need and react immediately. This means we can be even more agile. In combination with our recently announced facility move and upgrade to Westlake Village Studios, we are excited about the next steps in this exciting partnership.”
