About Glookast

Company History

Driven by an increasing customer need to simplify workflows in an increasingly complicated and fragmented broadcast landscape, Glookast was founded and quickly established a strong customer base amongst clients all over the world by solving clear problems with reliable solutions.

Glookast is glue for production workflows.

We develop tools that solve the most challenging issues of today's media production. We remove the complexity of ingesting, parking, retrieving, transforming, and outgesting content through seamless integration across multiple platforms. We empower customers with the freedom to choose the tools they like from the vendors they prefer.

Our core competency is the development of products for seamless workflows - both real-time and file-based.

Since no two workflows are the same, our ethos is to remain agnostic, flexible and open to allow our solutions to grow and develop with our customers' requirements.

Glookast remains a development focused organization, with over 45% of the Glookast team dedicated to making sure our tools are not only cutting-edge but totally reliable.
