GlobalM, scoopa partnership

April 23, 2024

GlobalM has announced a strategic partnership with scoopa, specialists in broadcast distribution, offering a complementary service for live transmission of recordings and file exchange.

While GlobalM’s software-defined video network (SDVN) platform provides distribution of live signals via SRT or RIST protocols, scoopa offers an automated high-speed distribution platform for file-based video content. With this new collaboration, live broadcast-quality signals are sent directly from the GlobalM interface to scoopa and recorded as a file which can then be distributed for broadcast, editing or archiving.

The partnership offers time and cost advantages for producers and rights holders by omitting intermediate steps such as recording in OB vans or control rooms, and the files can be made available as soon as the live broadcast is finished. In addition, many processes such as preview videos, rights management and email notifications are automated.

Paul Calleja, CEO at GlobalM, said: “We are excited to be working with scoopa on the development of disruptive solutions for the broadcast industry, in order to turn more and more advantages of the cloud into usable functions.”

The recording function has already been rolled out and is now available to all GlobalM users with a scoopa platform.
