March 15, 2017 MX1, the global media service provider, announced today that it has opened an office in Seoul, South Korea, strengthening the company’s presence and customer support in the Asia-Pacific region. The new office is located at: Room 506, 5F, Excon Venture Tower, 3, Eunhaeng-ro, Yeongdeungpo-gu in Seoul. Brendon Woo, managing director, Korea, will oversee MX1’s Seoul office with the aim to drive business growth, as well as quickly respond to the needs of Korean customers that are using MX1 360, the company’s end-to-end, cloud-based media services platform for content management and delivery. 

“Korea is a well-developed country for IT, media, broadcasting, and content production. Korean imports of foreign channels and exports of rich media content to global markets are increasing, and we recognised an opportunity to expand business through local support to new and existing customers,” said Woo. “Having an office in Seoul will allow us to communicate with customers in the local language and meet face to face, which is very important to us. As the world’s first media globalizer, we support content owners and TV channels, allowing them to deliver content anywhere and to every device. Our comprehensive service includes content management, playout, and various options for effective content distribution.”

MX1’s cloud-based playout service and distribution network provide global reach, allowing Korean content owners and TV channels to gain a competitive edge in the marketplace.
