VANCOUVER, BC, April 9, 2018 – Hubcast Media Productions, a global IP-based broadcasting company, announces a new partnership with World Capacity Builders. This strategic alliance will set in motion Hubcast’s core objective to deploy its HUBcasting™ technology globally to serve a worldwide network of content creators and distributors. The HUBcasting™ technology allows content producers to centralize a production infrastructure and deploy multi-cam production units in the field that transmit back to the broadcast facility no matter where the content originates in the world.
With WCB’s expertise, resources and access to a vast network in underserved regions of the world, Hubcast is poised to take its unique next generation of IP-based video production workflow and implement international broadcast facilities to service these rural communities via WCB’s Rural and Remote Broadband Systems (RRBS). As well, Hubcast will be able to quickly expand its dynamic content creation expertise and activities in China through WCB/China Radio Television Corporation “Entertainment Content Distribution Agreement”.
By quickly expanding beyond its Canadian borders, Hubcast Media’s initial plan is to leverage Canada’s stable geopolitical infrastructure and competitive dollar to create sustainable content no matter where it may originate. As its network of broadcast facilities come online, future goals are to interconnect these facilities to gain even greater scalability to the global broadcast initiative.
“We could be producing a live show in Istanbul which is being switched in Australia and directed from Canada,” explains Hubcast Founder and CEO Peter Young from NAB 2018 in Las Vegas. “We are honoured to be in partnership with WCB and help fulfill its global mandate to improve access to community capacity building events, financial services, technology and communications for the world’s poor and underserved communities.” The partnership will allow emerging communities to gain access to locally produced content without the hurdles of creating costly new broadcasting network infrastructures.
