“This has been an eventful year in which we have taken some huge steps and transformed what were two businesses into a unified, dynamic force,” commented TVT Media chief executive Ian Brotherston. “We’ve done this by blending talent, extending already-strong capabilities, adopting the best technologies from each, and building on the experience and expertise both groups brought to the table a year ago.

“Linking all the elements of our business together over the past year has put us in a strong and largely unique position to address the full complexities of global content delivery across cultures, languages and regulatory environments – all while overcoming technical hurdles,” Brotherston notes. “We have now positioned ourselves to more effectively enrich, localise and publish content, delivering it in 50 countries and 40 languages.”
