Clearleap expands to Latin America
| 29 May 2014
Multiscreen video logistics Clearleap has launched into the Latin American market with a regional headquarters in Brickell, Miami's international business district.
It has also appointed Tom McCarthy as vice president of sales for Latin America, to drive business across the region. McCarthy brings more than 20 years of experience to his role, having worked directly with major brands such as Tandberg Television (now part of Ericsson) and Omneon/Harmonic in Latin America. The launch comes on the heels of the company's successful round of $20 million funding, which is being used to accelerate Clearleap's domestic and global expansion.
Clearleap's platform provides management and delivery of premium video over both IP and traditional pay-TV networks.
"The increasing consumption of media over mobile platforms in Latin America is creating a multiscreen audience that we have come to find familiar in today's new digital landscape; an audience demanding premium content anytime, anywhere and on any device," said Braxton Jarratt, CEO at Clearleap. "The incredible success we have experienced in the US and EMEA is proof of our ability to enable broadcasters, pay-TV operators and content providers in LATAM to address and meet the needs of the changing TV industry. By placing highly qualified personnel in the region, and taking a strong and committed approach, we are certain that we can successfully serve the market, our customers and ultimately, the consumer."
