Airbeem provides an end to end content distribution platform and video experience platform enabling media companies, sports brands, broadcasters and content owners to create their own online video channels.
The company’s software as a service (SaaS) solution is powered by the technology used by larger broadcasters, which Airbeem says it is able to offer to any content owner to help them rapidly deploy immersive video experiences across platforms.
Steve Hardman, CEO and founder, Airbeem, said: “We are so pleased to have Neil join our executive team. His enviable track record and experience within the OTT industry will help us take Airbeem to the next level of growth globally.”
Berry added: “Consumers are driving the real change in how media companies need to deliver their content. Every content owner now needs to develop a direct to consumer approach to content delivery in order to provide the level of personalisation that is demanded by today’s audiences. Airbeem offers a unique, disruptive and next generation solution to content owners, providing real time innovative UX and monetisation tools to enhance the user experience, underpinned by a unique commercial go to market approach.”
