Ukrainian co-founders strengthen AIR Media-Tech’s suite of digital content creator solutions through the acquisition of ScaleLab and its recent partnerships with various industry-leading content amplification solutions.
TORONTO and KYIV, Ukraine – Jan. 17, 2023 – AIR Media-Tech, a global media company for digital-first creators and brands, today announced that its network of partner creators has exceeded one trillion views on YouTube on the heels of a year of record company growth. Through the strategic acquisition of successful U.S.-based media network ScaleLab, as well as multiple partnerships with industry-leading creator amplification tools and services such as Vidby and Gyre, AIR accelerates its growth into 2023.
“Not only did we meet our growth goals for 2022, we’ve far exceeded them, and this would not be possible without the support of our loyal partner creators,” said Sergii Bielousov, co-founder of AIR Media-Tech. “AIR reaching one trillion views is incredible! To put this in perspective, one trillion views is the equivalent to every single person on earth watching a video created by an AIR partner 125 times.”
Bielousov continued, “With the acquisition of ScaleLab, we combined two of the strongest social media players in the global creator economy market. And as we continue to strategically partner with companies like Vidby and Gyre, we are thrilled to continue giving more creators access to new opportunities. Achieving this one trillion views milestone truly demonstrates the strength of the AIR content creator ecosystem and helps strengthen our momentum as we venture into 2023.”
AIR’s leading-edge suite of both content creator and financial technology solutions are designed to increase a creator’s global exposure, driving viewership and subscriptions, and cultivating additional monetization opportunities. Additionally, AIR translates content into 20+ languages, making it possible for creators to expand to global markets and co-owns the localized channels with top creators.
Since 2011, AIR has developed an expansive portfolio of YouTube channels that generate vast numbers of monthly views. Some of the biggest influencers in the world have grown their audiences on YouTube with AIR, including Kids Diana Show (250M+ subscribers), Vlad & Niki (230M+ subscribers), Vania Mania Kids (25M+ subscribers), and The Q (13M subscribers), among many others.
“It’s an honor for us to become a part of this globally progressive and ambitious media group with the most advanced products that will greatly benefit our ScaleLab partners,” said David Brenner, founder and CEO of ScaleLab. “By combining our expertise, AIR and ScaleLab will provide even more value to creators across the globe and ultimately generate more engaged audiences across their channels and platforms.”
The partnerships with online translation and dubbing service, Vidby, and Gyre, a cloud streaming service delivering continuous streaming capabilities, provide additional tools and resources for AIR’s partner creators and enhance their channels by offering viewers more unique, localized content.
“We dedicate ourselves to delivering world-class products and services that help creators to grow on and off YouTube,” said Fedir Skyba, CEO of AIR Media-Tech. “Right now, we have the trajectory to continue building our ecosystem, offering even more to AIR’s partner creators, ensuring they have all the tools necessary to bring their business as creators to the next level.”
