Euronews says it has selected Globecast as its technical partner to spearhead the technological transformation of its operations and distribution.
The news follows the recent announcement of Globecast’s recently announced “full cloud” strategy and the provision of end-to-end, fully managed services.
Gregoire Courtois, Sales Director, Distribution and Media Management, Globecast, said: “As more and more customers want to move to the cloud to take advantage of the inherent flexibility and scalability, we have significantly expanded our service proposition to reach across consulting, technology and service integration. Following those processes, we can now also provide fully or partially managed service operation, depending on each customer case.”
Globecast has developed an end-to-end solution that allows Euronews to benefit from modern cloud capabilities with key processes automated. It will also benefit from Globecast’s ongoing full-service management. The project covers content production, playout and distribution of 14 linear channels.
Francois Schmitt, COO, Euronews, said, “Across the lifespan of Euronews, we’re continually expanding and adding new services and operating these ourselves. Globecast very clearly explained the dramatic evolution of its cloud suite of services and as we enter the next stage of our development, the optimisation of our technical solutions was central to what we wanted to do.”
Globecast is partnering with systems integrator ES Broadcast and is working with AWS via its cloud partnership. The company is integrating and then fully managing all linear services 24/7. The solution is composed of several SaaS partners’ technologies across video editing, scheduling and playout and then on across the company’s renowned distribution range of options. Globecast is also integrating more specific tools to optimise the service portfolio to create a fully integrated, seamless, flexible and easily scalable architecture.
