Globecast Partners With Brklyn-Media

News Image
Globecast has formed a strategic partnership with New York City-based Brklyn-Media, provider of virtualized media management and infrastructure services, expanding the capabilities each can provide with greater reach and the benefits of geographic diversity.

Leveraging a rich broadcast and data center facility in Brooklyn, New York, Rick Phelps, a 20 year industry veteran in digital media and technology services, established Brklyn-Media in 2020, with advisory support from well-known industry figures including Wes Simpson and Rich Wolf. Brklyn-Media offers a full complement of media management services including live production, post-production, file aggregation, curation, conversion/processing/transformation, Network Operations Services, IP acquisition, distribution and publishing to all linear and non-linear platforms.

Eddie Ferraro, MD Globecast Americas, said: "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."

Phelps said: "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 added: "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."
