Solutions provider Globecast has announced the launch of a new event-based IP-over-satellite platform, designed for temporary events.
Globcast has partnered with California-based company CBTV for the launch. CBTV provides content creators with remote connectivity via satellite and specialises in IP-networked transmissions. It has supplied RF/modem modulation, IP switching, and routing equipment to Globecast’s Culver City Media Center, forming a centralised media hub and worldwide backbone.
The new platform allows users to deliver streaming, file transfers, WiFi, 4K, 8K, and 360-degree live content using native IP-based satellite transmission from remote locations.
It can also be used for a variety of IP-based workflows including: high-bandwidth moving picture content; file transfers; communications redundancy; and IT services between remote sites and home locations.
Chris Borghesani, owner/director of CBTV commented, “When searching for a technology partner, it was apparent that Globecast had the global reach and flexible solutions necessary for this platform to work. Together, we can now offer customers a combined toolbox of conventional and new media workflows that uses native IP and high-power satellite transmission, which is an evolution we are leading.”
Tim Jackson, SVP Sales and Marketing at Globecast Americas, added, “When you take IP technology and combine it with our Media Centers, the result is a flexible, wide-scale platform that allows individual customers to choose how they use the available connectivity — whether it’s for just a few minutes of HD video or for connectivity to their local LAN.”
