GSI Global is partnering with Black Dog Promotions in developing state-of-the-industry content for digital broadcasting across multiple platforms, locally and internationally.
Online PR News – 07-November-2013 – Scottsdale, AZ, November 11, 2013 – Black Dog Promotions is proud to introduce their newest client GSI Global, Inc. Business partners Tank Jones and Mike Smoot are at the helm of GSI Global, Inc., which launched in 2012. “Our mission at GSI Global is to connect consumers with content created by many providers and to do that in a profitable way,” Jones explained. “Anything video-related we do; whether its video integration into someone’s current website, or helping them to produce or edit a video, add graphic animation on a video or anything they can use video for, that’s what we do.” Essentially, any person or company can have their very own quality channel with GSI Global, Inc.
Founder of Black Dog Promotions, Scott Kelly said, “Not only are we gaining an exciting new client and partner with GSI Global, Inc., but we will also be launching the Black Dog Promotions Channel on their site. This marks an unprecedented media expansion that will also encompass some of Black Dog Promotions’ other clients. We are proud to have partnered with such a forward-thinking media company.”
Some popular channels on the site now include a Hispanic online media publication and Renegade Calendar Girls. The next channel that is already creating a lot of buzz is The Shorts Network and will debut in mid-November. “It’s a conglomeration of short films from independent producers as well as a couple of Academy Award-winning shorts. We’ve been getting a ton of films that we’re ingesting into the channel right now and we’ve got filmmakers from all over the world,” Jones explained. Of note, Jones is also a steadily working actor, appearing in many films including “Three Kings” and as Hank's physical therapist on the mega-hit show, “Breaking Bad.” In keeping it light-hearted, the site will be running a lot of spoof videos and spoof advertising paying homage to films and pop culture in general.
Another division of GSI Global provides a video integration component to online magazines and a way for real estate agents to showcase their home listings in a more interactive way. “We’re working with a lot of businesses in the Scottsdale area and the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce,” Jones noted. There will also be a pay-per-view component for martial arts fighting and other special events. Kelly added, “With so many special events and concerts, there will now be another incredibly attractive way for production companies to put forth quality media and retain a very high portion of profits.”
This site allows content partners to have creative control over their own channels without the aggravation of forced ads and channel providers will be able to choose to exactly whom they want to market their channel. “If someone has a following, they can provide the advertising and we’ll put that advertising (skins, pre-rolls, banners, etc.) on their channel. Our revenue share is much more favorable to where our content providers are making the lion’s share of the money compared to other video channels,” noted Jones. GSI Global, Inc. is positioned to become the premier video content platform for an unlimited number of industries, businesses and special-interest groups.
“We’re going to be one of the first companies to offer local channels for free. You’ll be able to watch all your local channels for free without a subscription to a cable or satellite provider,” said Jones. “We’re also affiliated with DISH Network and we provide the cable for lots of hotels, military bases and apartment complexes.” GSI Global, Inc. is also looking forward to providing premium content to foreign countries that don’t have access to quality content and programming.
