GlobalM is built by a team of individuals who work daily to facilitate the flow of content while ensuring editorial verification of citizen journalism and social media content.
We are a team of media leaders, journalists, social newsgathering and verification specialists, technologists, engineers, and television industry professionals. We recognize a need for media organizations to have more content available to them in real time with a global perspective.
GlobalM provides a service for crowdsourcing news and sports content. We built our media platform based on the needs of news and sports content contribution, and this led to the development of an advanced secure video streaming network to meet the requirements for high-quality low-latency LIVE or file-based video delivery over the internet.

The GlobalM Live Video Network
The GlobalM streaming solution is designed to be a high-availability (HA) and scalable system that automates and geolocates streaming resources to the closest points of presence on the AWS network for each stream origin and destination. Using the SRT protocol, we achieve sub-second latency and optimal contribution quality bit rates predominantly with H.264 (AVC) and H.265 (HEVC).
Reporters & Citizen Journalism

Citizen journalists can respond to assignment jobs posted by media outlets to provide live or non-live content based on predefined requirements.
