Broadcaster France Télévisions has selected a technology partnership between Globecast and Net Insight to replace its legacy media contribution and distribution solution for the territories it serves: French Guiana; French Polynesia; Guadeloupe/Saint Martin; Martinique; Mayotte; New Caledonia; Réunion; Saint Pierre and Miquelon; Wallis and Futuna.
The broadcaster wanted to “significantly upgrade” the flexibility and reliability of its technology to manage contribution feeds between local studios across the territories, as well eight press agencies. This involves both permanent and occasional feeds from a central studio in France to all territories.
It has selected Net Insight’s Nimbra Edge platform to work alongside Globecast’s cloud infrastructure with the project already up and running.
Jacques Donat-Bouillud, director of broadcasting and distribution networks development for France Télévisions, said, “The solution proposed by Globecast and its partners meets the criteria since it allows us to improve the services provided, while maintaining the level of quality of service required for the public service missions of France Télévisions. In addition, this solution is more economical than the previous one, while making a leap forward in technology.”
“The solution needed to be as cost-effective as possible so leveraging a combination of the public internet and the cloud was a priority, while guaranteeing premium service quality,” added Yann Madeleine, EVP Sales, Globecast in France. “Our expertise in creating large-scale media networks, with Net Insight’s Nimbra Edge technology key to this solution, was essential for this project.”
