About Make.TV

Make.TV is a provider of cloud-native live video acquisition and management. We enable more content to be created and distributed between content creators, producers and broadcasters, at a scale and speed previously not possible. Our Live Video Cloud simplifies the creation, organization and routing of live video sources. With Make.TV Playout, we offer a cloud-based scheduler and playout solution, which enables content owners to create TV programs with a mix of pre-produced content and acquired live or near-live streams. After successfully securing Series A funding in the US, we were recently acquired by LTN Global, a company specializing in ultra-low latency transport of live video streams over the public internet.
 
Several broadcasting, media and eSports brands already successfully use our SaaS propositions. They can manage complex workflows that incorporate a wide array of video sources such as mobile devices, cameras, social media platforms, professional sources and traditional broadcast infrastructure. With an intuitive, browser-based multi-view UI, they are able to deliver video streams to broadcast platforms and affiliates, as well as to social media and OTT platforms (i.e. Facebook Live, YouTube, Twitch etc.) in parallel. 
 
As a company, we believe in maintaining agility by employing flat hierarchies, and we encourage our team members with the freedom to take ownership of their responsibilities.
