Our History

The ethos of Beam is simple. We streamline the process of managing, distributing and storing commercial content for an increasingly connected global marketplace.

Beam was originally established as an in-house FTP process to allow clients to review and approve visual-effects work being completed by The Mill in London. By working alongside the post production community we fully understand the creative process that drives the marketing industry and have been able to extend our core services by becoming a project-management tool and a true pioneer of digital-asset management.

Today we store, adapt and send thousands of assets to hundreds of television broadcasters worldwide, and manage a secure archive in excess of 2,500,000 assets.

We are trusted by many of the world's biggest marketers to manage every aspect of their commercial content, ensuring continued innovation is applied to serve the changing needs of brands and creative businesses in the tapeless and connected digital age.

Beam was acquired by Technicolor in September 2015 and is the content logistics specialist for Technicolor's portfolio of brands.
