GlobalM and scoopa forge strategic partnership to streamline content distribution

GlobalM has recently unveiled a strategic collaboration with scoopa, an expert in high-quality content distribution, aimed at streamlining the transmission of content and file exchange processes.

While GlobalM’s software-defined video network (SDVN) platform ensures the global distribution of live signals using SRT or RIST protocols, scoopa brings to the table an automated high-speed distribution platform tailored for file-based video content. Through this newfound alliance, broadcast-quality live signals are seamlessly channeled from the GlobalM interface to scoopa, where they are then recorded as files ready for distribution, whether for broadcasting, editing, or archiving purposes.

This partnership promises significant time and cost benefits for producers and rights holders by eliminating intermediary steps like recording in OB vans or control rooms. Furthermore, the files become available as soon as the live broadcast concludes. Additionally, several processes such as preview videos, rights management, and email notifications are automated, enhancing operational efficiency.

Commenting on the partnership, Paul Calleja, CEO of GlobalM, expressed enthusiasm, stating, “We are thrilled to collaborate with scoopa in pioneering disruptive solutions for the broadcast industry, leveraging the cloud’s potential to deliver practical functionalities.”

The recording feature has already been rolled out and is now accessible to all GlobalM users utilizing the scoopa platform. Attendees at NAB 2024 had the opportunity to explore this development and experience a demo of the scoopa partnership at the GlobalM/Matrox Video Stand SL5073, alongside GlobalM’s  video transport solutions.
