Broadcast Tech & Engineering News – Bryan Adams joins Scottish music-sharing startup Songbox

Bryan Adams has joined Scottish tech startup Songbox as a co-founder after falling in love with the platform’s secure music-sharing capabilities. Glasgow-based Songbox allows musicians and other audio content creators to securely store and share their files with anyone they choose, be it co-creators, collaborators, industry figures, or media. The platform lets the content creator know that the file has been received and whether it has been listened to – even confirming which tracks have been played and for how long. The Canadian rocker was one of the first big names to use the newly-launched platform and has helped add new features to the product, noting that he no longer has to send out physical files, keeping early versions of songs secure until he’s ready for an official release. Songbox founders Michael Coll and Ciaran O’Toole are looking to grow the platform and will soon begin a series of funding rounds.

Enghouse Networks, the Markham, ON-based global telecommunications technology and streaming TV solutions provider, has announced that its SaaS IPTV platform, EspialTV, has been chosen by GVTC Communications to bring video streaming services to its customer base. The solution allows GVTC to provide more options to its subscribers, including the ability to record and view shows on any connected device, including Amazon’s Fire TV, Roku, AppleTV, phones and tablets. The new GVTC system relies on Broadpeak’s content delivery network (CDN) and cloud DPVR solutions.


GDS Communications in Surrey, BC is now a reseller for OMC TECH products. OMC TECH manufactures data transceivers, SDI 3G/12G video SFP transceivers, media converters and fiber extenders for broadcasting, video streaming, industrial Ethernet, and machine vision applications.

Mood Media’s Vibenomics advertising division, an experiential tech and retail media solutions provider, and Stingray Advertising, are combining their respective networks creating the largest U.S. retail media in-store network. The companies say the collaboration will provide advertisers with an unmatched national presence, reaching over 800 million monthly shoppers through in-store digital audio advertising across 25,000+ brick-and-mortar locations nationwide. The sales agreement will streamline programmatic advertising across all networks, taking advantage of Vibenomics’ advanced capabilities. The announcement comes as the companies say U.S. retail media spending is on the rise, increasing from $31B in 2021 to an anticipated $61B by 2024.
