Globecast Announces New Remote Production Service At IBC 2016

Globecast discloses they will be turning the concept of traditional supply of a ready to broadcast feed from venues on its head by introducing their new remote production service at IBC 2016.

Globecast has created a global hybrid fiber and satellite network for video contribution and distribution. Their network enables multiplatform delivery including TV Everywhere OTT, Satellite, cable, Video on demand, CDN delivery as well as cloud-enabled media services. 

Now, Globecast has developed their new remote production service as a cost-effective multi-tenant video headend solution to allow any Telco (telecommunications company) in the world, to deliver a video service to their subscribers. The solution reduces upfront investments, speeds time to market and maximises quality through provision as a supported, fully managed service.

The new remote production service that they plan to showcase at IBC 2016 will allow content owners to select from multiple source feeds at their own global locations, enabling them to create bespoke programming on their own production systems, and prepare ready-to-broadcast feeds.

Globecast is setting the stage for technology to provide efficient access to source feeds — directly from cameras and elsewhere — to international broadcasters at key Globecast Media Center handover points, with delivery in secure IP format.
