The Cloud Is Green

While you’ll find there’s plenty of reasons to switch to Extreme Reach, there’s also a bunch of eco-friendly benefits that come with using our platform.

Did you know…

  • The Cloud leaves a lighter carbon footprint. By harnessing the cloud, our platform eliminates tons of materials, fuel & costs associated with the satellite ad delivery model.
  • The Cloud conserves petroleum. Each video tape uses about a gallon of petroleum in manufacturing… and that’s before shipping. Using our platform, our clients have eliminated hundreds of thousands of tapes & conserved thousands of tons of petroleum.
  • The Cloud saves trees. Our cloud-based platform and paperless workflow drastically reduce the amount of paper used in each Extreme Reach facility.

And going green provides more than just green perks:

  • Our cloud-based platform delivers your ads faster than satellite ad delivery – no rocket trips required!
  • Going green means that you save some extra green, too — with our platform, advertisers save time, energy and money.

And that’s just for starters! Find more reasons to go green with Extreme Reach on our new Green page.

NBC Selects Extreme Reach to Streamline the Distribution of Promotional TV Spots


Extreme Reach has announced their partnership with NBC to deliver promotional spots from NBC’s production centers to their network affiliates across the country. With the Extreme Reach video distribution solution, NBC on-air promotion spots are now distributed faster and earlier each day, allowing significantly more local airtime for each promo.

Until now, the daily process of delivering NBC’s promotional spots via multiple satellite feeds to network affiliates created a significant lag in promo distribution. But with this new program, which NBC has named CliC (Connect, Locate, Integrate, Communicate), Extreme Reach eliminates the manual steps and the scheduling dependencies of satellite feeds, providing millions of dollars of value to the network and saving each NBC affiliate hours of labor each week.

Since CliC’s launch in mid-June, more than 100 NBC affiliates across the U.S. have upgraded from their satellite-based delivery model to the Extreme Reach cloud-based solution. Additional affiliates are signing on every day and NBC plans to completely phase out satellite-based distribution of daily short-form promos by the early part of 2012.

For more information on CliC and the NBC-Extreme Reach partnership, learn more in our new press release.
