Globecast joins AWS global partnership programme

Media management solutions provider Globecast has signed on as an official global Amazon Web Services (AWS) partner.

The company has successfully completed AWS’ Foundational Technical Review (FTR) for its Managed Cloud Network solution. 

The solution, tailored for sports broadcasters and rights holders, recently launched its version 2.0 and allows customers to add value to event coverage. The latest update includes integration direct from the venue site to affiliates, and support for the open-source SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) protocol.

The AWS FTR enables AWS Partners to identify and remediate risks in their products, and provides vendors with best practices to reduce risk.

Sebastien Fauzan, Head of Marketing for Live and Sports at Globecast, said: “We are very pleased to achieve AWS partner status. We have worked with them across our media supply chain services, including major cloud playout projects with Crown Media and GAC Family. Globecast MCN is the first service of ours to complete the FTR. AWS really looked at the services we can provide with MCN, closely examining the design, build and the way it’s operated.

“As we continue our journey and our customers’ journeys to the cloud, it’s imperative we work with the best the industry has to offer and that, of course, includes AWS. We have worked hard to ensure our MCN service achieves its targets and this is very important step on that road.”
