Make.TV’s cloud-based services enable content creators to access, curate, and publish live video streams to affiliates, social media, and OTT platforms encompassing news, sports, eSports and entertainment. The services allow producers to manage workflows incorporating over sources ranging from mobile devices, cameras, social media platforms — including Facebook Live, YouTube and Twitch — as well as traditional broadcast infrastructures.

LTN says that its transport solution will give Make.TV customers the ability to distribute broadcast-quality live feeds and by combining services it can enable customers to add transformation workflows such as closed captioning, transcoding, and graphics, as well as signalling and metadata for monetisation and ad enablement, for both traditional broadcast and new digital platforms.

“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,” said LTN Global co-founder and executive chairman Malik Khan. “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.”

“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,” added Andreas Jacobi, CEO and co-founder of Make.TV. “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.”
