HCL Technologies (HCL), a leading global technology company, has partnered with MetaMedia, the world’s first global, cloud-based distribution platform for cinemas, drive-ins and other out-of-home venues, to help accelerate the company’s global expansion following a year of rapid growth.
Launched last year, MetaMedia has experienced significant growth and already expanded its entertainment network to more than 3,000 screens across the U.S. and Canada.
As part of the global partnership, HCL Technologies will provide design, engineering and deployment services for MetaMedia’s international expansion to ensure the company’s infrastructure can keep pace with its rapid growth. The agreement includes the development and running of a custom network operations center that will allow MetaMedia to manage real-time platform performance, control remote cameras and microphones and facilitate theater-to-theater and studio-to-theater interactions. The technology will support everything from marketing efforts and product launches to e-sports competitions and live events and will help ensure MetaMedia continues to deliver best-in-class service and premium content.
With a dedicated Microsoft business unit, HCL will also develop, integrate and maintain solutions on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform for MetaMedia’s improved scalability, security and functionality. In addition, HCL Technologies will collaborate with MetaMedia on the development of new products and services.
HCL Technologies has a proven track record of helping media and entertainment companies deploy disruptive technology platforms. One of America’s fastest-growing entertainment technology companies, MetaMedia chose HCL Technologies based on its experience in helping entertainment tech companies scale globally and its presence in countries targeted for MetaMedia’s next wave of expansion.
