Gorilla Grabs the Post-NAB Spotlight with New Media Monetization Platform – Gorilla MAM and X-Share

2014/05/16

As a long-established developer of Media Asset Management solutions, Gorilla's content repurposing and monetization platform provides the underlying infrastructure to TVB's new online video store-GoTV.  The project is the first media content cloud in Asia, comparable to an Apple iTunes for Chinese-language TV and movie content. (See the video below for why TVB chose Gorilla as a technology partner.)

During the NAB2014 show in Las Vegas, this project caught the attention of both customers and partners, as well as keen interest from the media, including well-known broadcast magazine, InBroadcast, the influential UK publisher.  The main focus of their May issue is a sneak preview of the up-coming broadcast show in Singapore, BroadcastAsia (17-20 June), which includes an in-depth story on Gorilla. Gorilla’s APAC Senior Sales Director, Mike Wang will visit BroadcastAsia to meet with customers and partners.
