Clearleap Heads Into Latin America

Following an expansion into Europe last August, multiscreen video specialist Clearleap is also setting its sights south of the border with a launch into Latin America.

To support the expansion, Clearleap has opened its LATAM headquarters in Miami’s Brickell district, and has tapped Tom McCarthy to serve as vice president sales, LATAM.

McCarthy is late of Tandberg Television (now part of Ericsson) and Omneon/Harmonic.

Clearleap’s most recent expansion comes into view following a $20 million “C” round of funding that it’s using to fuel its growth in the U.S. and abroad.

“The increasing consumption of media over mobile platforms in Latin America is creating a multiscreen audience that we have come to find familiar in today’s new digital landscape; an audience demanding premium content anytime, anywhere and on any device,” said Braxton Jarratt, CEO, Clearleap, in a statement.

Clearleap’s customer roster includes HBO, Travel Channel, Time Warner Cable, Food Network, and Verizon Communications, among others.
