Madison, WI – Field59, a premier online video management system for live streaming, video-on-demand and over-the-top video solutions, today announced a partnership with Hinckley Productions, a full-service video production company specializing in video for online distribution and live streaming.

“Being in the business of video content production, partnering with Field59 is a powerful relationship for us. It weds our production expertise with their robust streaming platform. This gives us an edge in our industry. We’re able to control all aspects of a live broadcast, and can dependably rely on personalized technical support from the Field59 team.”
