Globant, a global leader in technology services, and Streamroot, the provider of the world’s most extensive distributed delivery network for OTT video, announced today a strategic partnership for online video delivery.
Globant is a pioneer in the creation of digital journeys, combining the best of engineering, innovation, and design. The company empowers its customers to reshape and define the future of entertainment and has earned the trust of a myriad of leading companies in the media and entertainment space.
To curate the most relevant, cutting-edge solutions, Globant seeks to collaborate with innovative tech companies from around the world and has chosen Streamroot as a strategic delivery partner. As part of this strategic partnership, Globant will integrate Streamroot’s patented video delivery solution, Streamroot CDN Mesh Delivery (formerly known as Streamroot DNA), into its OTT Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), Signal. Signal combines leading video streaming technologies to help publishers engage users across devices, drive new revenue and—with the addition of Streamroot—better deliver high-quality video at scale.
“Streamroot is proud to partner with Globant, and to join the prestigious list of Globant trusted providers, which includes top industry players such as VDMS, Ooyala, and thePlatform. This new partnership demonstrates the industry’s need for a better way to deliver content over the top, and its recognition that traditional infrastructures simply don’t cut it in the Zettabyte era,” says Streamroot Co-founder and CEO, Pierre-Louis Theron. “Partnering with Globant is a natural move for Streamroot; our companies have a common vision to drive the industry forward through intelligent innovation. We are looking forward to empowering clients with unprecedented scalability and robust delivery.”
Nate Thompson, Managing Director in Globant’s OTT Practice, also referred to the significant value in this partnership: “Our clients turn to us for state-of-the-art solutions to help them stay ahead of the curve. Streamroot’s revolutionary technology offers exactly that. Streamroot has already proven to be a valuable partner to major broadcasters, and we certainly believe that its forward-thinking, powerful solution is key to delivering impeccable user experience in today’s highly competitive OTT market. We are extremely enthusiastic about Streamroot’s technology and see great potential for driving customer success together.”
Streamroot and Globant will be showcasing their joint solution at NAB Show this Monday, April 9 at 2:00 pm, booth SU 9114.
