FirstLight Media and June merge to become Junefirst

OTT technology provider FirstLight Media and tech specialist June have announced the companies will merge to become Junefirst.

The company’s services include localisation, media and content management as well as associated tech services such as CMS, packaging, distribution and integration services.

Clients will still be able to use JuneFirst’s tech, localisation and content services separately. In addition, Comet, JuneFirst’s CMS, is offered as a SaaS service for customers, where they are provided a complete CMS for OTT, VOD, traditional linear TV and Live as well as modules for packaging and distributing content to any platform.

The company will continue to operate at its offices across the Nordic regions.

“For a long time, we’ve had requests from content providers, streaming platforms and distributors alike to deliver a cohesive service chain. The desire for a partner who can fulfill the whole chain is a strong trend, in Europe as well as in the Nordics. That’s why we created JuneFirst, so that we can be the first people you turn to in order to launch your content in a new market or on a new platform. We help our customers adapt, localise and transcode to take their content all the way,” said Katarina Svensson, CEO for JuneFirst.

”Today’s customers want to create, manage and deliver content globally, in any language on any platform. At the same time, they want lower costs, shorter delivery times and higher quality. JuneFirst’s tech and localisation services are designed to meet those needs,” said Martin Königsmark, chairman of the board, JuneFirst.
