NAB SHOW, LAS VEGAS – April 14, 2024 – Globant (NYSE: GLOB), a digitally native company focused on reinventing businesses through innovative technology solutions, and Quickplay, a leader in cloud transformations of OTT experiences for Pay TV, Telcos and MVPDs, today announced their collaboration to help OTT providers optimize the value of archival media footage to drive viewer engagement and monetization across the telecom and media & entertainment industries. 

 

The two companies are partnering to develop a new solution package, “Media Archive AI,” that harnesses advanced machine learning and generative AI technology to expedite deeper integration of historical footage within live and on-demand content.
