New at CABSAT 2018
Monetize your content with new flexible Cloud Channel Playout
Globecast is announcing its new Cloud Channel Playout solution for SD, HD and 4K channels. This solution significantly enhances service deployment efficiency, reduces time-to-market, and allows broadcasters to reach new international markets with lower upfront investment. With this approach, flexibility is very high. The number of channels can be increased or reduced within days and the channel branding mix reshuffled for particular audiences and events.
The new Cloud Channel Playout offer from Globecast also provides broadcasters with an opportunity to increase revenue from international markets by localization of advertisements, programming and channel branding at a country level, or even at a per-affiliate level, based on local consumer needs.

Platform and content protection with Business Continuity
With the increasing threat from exposing content to the internet, it is critical today for broadcasters to both ensure hardware redundancy and content security. Globecast provides a range of disaster recovery solutions from a simple server with a loop of “evergreen” content, through cloud solutions to a full mirror of the primary master control operation, keeping customer businesses running through all eventualities.
In addition, Globecast is working with its sister company Orange Cyber Defense to provide solutions to help protect priority IT platforms (OTT, VOD and playout).

Globecast is also highlighting the latest advances in its telco services at CABSAT 2018. To help channels gain coverage with the world’s leading pay-TV and telco platforms, Globecast aggregates and distributes premium worldwide content for the international marketplace.
