LTN Global has entered into an agreement to acquire Make.TV.
Make.TV’s Cloud-based services enable news, sports, esports and entertainment producers to manage complex workflows incorporating a wide array of video sources, such as mobile devices, cameras, social media platforms, professional sources and traditional broadcast infrastructure.
The browser-based multiview user interface allows customers to easily deliver video streams to broadcast platforms and affiliates, as well as to social media and OTT platforms, including Facebook Live, YouTube and Twitch.
LTN’s low-latency transport solution gives Make.TV users the ability to distribute broadcast-quality live feeds. The combination of Make.TV and LTN services also adds transformation workflows (closed captioning, transcoding, graphics and metadata for monetisation and ad enablement) for both traditional broadcast and new digital platforms.
LTN Global co-founder and executive chairman Malik Khan said: “The integration of Make.TV’s Cloud-based services into our managed IP production and transmission workflows gives customers even greater control and agility in executing live video creation, distribution and monetisation.
“With a highly scalable, Cloud-based live video platform, our customers can quickly and easily gain visibility into an unlimited number of real-time sources and turn this content into a revenue-generating asset, backed by the assurance of a fully managed service.”
Make.TV CEO and co-founder Andreas Jacobi added: “Being part of LTN Global will significantly enhance the services we can provide to customers, who now can acquire, deliver and curate content via the most advanced transport solution available.
“In uniting these technologies, we can bring customers the benefit of considerable efficiencies and value-added workflows, allowing them to rapidly create and deliver more content to more viewers.”
