Where did our name come from?
GLOOKAST = "Glue" for "Broadcast". Our customers already had the tools to capture content (XDCAM HD, XDCAM EX, DVCPRO HD, AVC-I, uncompressed HD, HD/SD SDI, etc.) and they already had the storage for their media (local, SAN, NAS, Avid, etc.). What they needed was the "glue" to ingest their content in multiple, simultaneous resolutions as well as the ability to deliver the media and metadata to their current storage devices.
GLOOKAST provides those capabilities -- and more!
We develop tools that solve the most challenging issues of today's media production. We remove the complexity of ingesting, parking, retrieving, transforming, and outgesting content through seamless integration across multiple platforms. GLOOKAST empowers customers with the freedom to choose the tools they like from the vendors they prefer.
Our core competency is the development of products for seamless MXF workflows -- both baseband and file-based. Since no two workflows are the same, GLOOKAST products address the full range of workflows: broadcast production, news production, post production, field production, and content distribution. We aspire to exceed our customers' expectations by creating innovative products that “solve the workflow puzzle".
