WTA NAMES BILL TILLSON 2013 TELEPORT EXECUTIVE OF THE YEAR FOR SECOND TIME

(New York City, March 11, 2013) – The World Teleport Association (WTA) announced that Bill Tillson, Co-CEO of Encompass Digital Media, has been named its 2013 Teleport Executive of the Year for the second consecutive year, a first in the 18 year history of the award. Mr. Tillson will be honored during WTA’s Teleport Awards for Excellence luncheon on 19 March during SATELLITE 2013. The Teleport Executive of the Year award is presented to an individual for demonstrated entrepreneurship, leadership and innovation in the development or operation of a teleport-based business.

According to the association’s Awards Committee, Mr. Tillson’s second consecutive award was due to the impressive growth Encompass has achieved through a series of acquisitions and strategic alignments by Mr. Tillson, beginning with the purchase of Andrita Studios in Los Angeles, and continuing through the company’s most recent acquisition, Teleport Internacional Buenos Aires (TIBA), in November of 2012. The Teleport Executive of the Year is determined by the WTA’s board of directors, who evaluate the CEO or leading executive among the associations “Fast 20” group of teleport operators for that year.

“Growth by acquisition has a rocky track record in our industry,” said WTA executive director Robert Bell, “with acquirers too often not fully understanding what they are buying and how the pieces being assembled can add up to more than the sum of the parts.” Bell added, “Bill Tillson deeply understands this business and how to apply financial leverage and clear strategic direction for success.”

With this infrastructure, we are able to provide a platform which enables our clients to easily expand their business model cost-effectively,” commented Horowitz. “I look forward to continuing my long-standing relationship with Bill as we partner to take the company to its next level. I join the entire Encompass Board in thanking Simon for all he has contributed to the success we have achieved to date.”

GEORGIA PUBLIC BROADCASTING AND ENCOMPASS LAUNCH CENTRALCASTING PARTNERSHIP

Georgia-based facility provides Master Control services for GPB program feeds.

Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB Media) announced today that it has completed the groundbreaking transition of its centralcasting services to Encompass Digital Media, a global leader in digital media services. Encompass will record, store, and distribute programming and station break elements for GPB HD (GPB Media’s main television channel) via fiber to GPB’s statewide network of nine television stations that provides coverage to 98% of Georgia and parts of Florida, South Carolina, Alabama and Tennessee. Encompass will do the same for GPB’s two additional channels, GPB Knowledge and GPB Kids, which were launched in 2009 as part of GPB’s digital transition.

Encompass’ centralcasting services for GPB Media include 24/7/365 Master Control, live event switching, ingest, quality control and engineering support. Transitioning the playout to Encompass’ hub in Atlanta will enable GPB Media to realize significant savings in equipment and operational expenses while improving service quality and overall performance. In addition, GPB Media’s state-of-the-art studios are now connected to Encompass’ global fiber network allowing for immediate access to all Encompass Teleports around the world for domestic and international distribution.

“This is an extraordinary fiduciary partnership for GPB and Encompass that will positively impact viewers, GPB members and the entire state of Georgia,” said Teya Ryan, President and Executive Director at GPB. “Public broadcasters nationally have considered a move to centralcasting for several years. GPB has chosen to forge ahead with a respected industry leader that happens to be based right here in Georgia. We’re convinced that others in public media will be impressed by the quality of Encompass’ work and the savings they too can realize— this is truly a win-win for Georgia and public media in this country.”

“Encompass is honored to be providing services to and supporting one of the most widely viewed PBS stations in the country,” states Jim Schuster, Executive Vice President and President, Encompass Atlanta. “Our relationship with GPB Media has had very special meaning to us due to the significance of public television and its positive impact within our local community.”

GPB began side-by-side shadowing on all three of its television platforms (GPB HD, GPB Kids, GPB Knowledge) utilizing the centralcasting with Encompass in December and completed the official transition at 6A.M. on December 20, 2012. GPB began the RFP process in February of 2012 and completed the transition from contract signing in August to implementation in a very short five months.

“GPB Media is thrilled to work with a top-notch company like Encompass to bring better quality and better value to all Georgians,” said Ryan, “and I look forward to encouraging other stations in the PBS system to do the same.”
