Distribution Deal with Infobase Includes All 26 Episodes from the Factual Science & Technology Series' First Season
LOS ANGELES, July 10, 2019 /CNW/ - As Globalive Media's "Beyond Innovation" puts a successful wrap on its first season, the factual science & technology series is about to expand its reach into academic libraries around the world thanks to a deal facilitated by UK-based distribution partner A Tall Order. Infobase is adding all 26 episodes to its Films On Demand streaming video platform, which will make "Beyond Innovation" available to subscribing librarians, faculty and students at over 1,550 colleges and universities worldwide. The series will be part of Films On Demand's Master Academic Video Collection as well as relevant subject collections, such as Business & Economics and Technology & Society.
Today's news comes on the heels of Globalive Media's second-run sales of "Beyond Innovation" to a host of airline content providers, which have episodes airing on United Airlines, Air France, Delta, WestJet, Japan Airlines, Kenya Airlines, Royal Air Maroc, Saudia and Middle East Airlines. Co-hosted by venture capitalist Anthony Lacavera and consumer tech journalist Michael Bancroft, "Beyond Innovation" uncovers the world's new and emerging technologies changing the way we live and do business.
"We're excited to build on our successful season one wrap by adding universities around the world to our growing audience," said Bancroft, who is also executive producer of the series. "College students, after all, represent many of tomorrow's innovators who will benefit immensely by learning from the change-makers we profile."
Added Lacavera: "Through the Films On Demand platform, 'Beyond Innovation' will give students an insider's look into the mindsets of entrepreneurs around the world whose work is truly inspiring. They will come away realizing that anything is possible."
