In 2002, Tim Anderson and Sean Busby co-founded TBC Integration and DigitalGlue. TBC focused on broadcast and satellite hardware sales and integration services. DigitalGlue provided custom software development to industry leaders for media ingest, content management, targeted distribution, automation, and playout. In recent years, technology has shifted from proprietary hardware to software based CPU/GPU solutions. The importance of our rapid software development expertise has proven vital for us to connect legacy infrastructures into a true digital end-to-end workflow. Looking to the future, we have decided to change our name to DigitalGlue. We feel the company name best reflects our vision in a converging digital video ecosystem.
