The technology is designed to streamline the gathering and sharing of content, empowering networks large and small to diversify their content and engage broader audiences while generating new revenue streams on content that can be used and shared in new markets.
Tom Grimes, CEO and Founder of Videoship added “We are looking forward to meeting with broadcasters and news agencies at the PMA and CBU event in Kingston this week and demonstrating our technology. We are proud of how our services have enabled organizations worldwide to transition their contribution feeds from expensive satellite and leased line networks to bundled broadband Internet connectivity while maintaining the broadcast quality B2B Service Level Agreement (SLA) terms and conditions that they are used to.”
The Public Media Alliance (formerly the Commonwealth Broadcasting Association) global conference will feature high profile global and regional speakers for a day of debate highlighting how new media technologies provide boundless opportunities for innovation in content and ideas. As many broadcasters are evolving into multiplatform media organizations, it is a critical time to ensure that social media use is professionalized, and public trust retained.
