Globecast Launches Live Stream Capture Platform at IBC 2017

Globecast, the content delivery arm of the French Orange group, will major on its new media management platform for extracting on demand files from live streams at IBC 2017.

The platform will allow broadcasters and distributors to clip content from live streams for immediate editing, publishing and syndication to online services and social media. The package exploits Globecast’s existing techniques covering live events to help customers’ editorial teams package action highlights during and after an event and to publish to connected screens. The pitch is to increase viewer engagement, grow audiences and introduce new monetisation models.

Globecast will also show its GCXN package, which manages transport of broadcast and media services over the public internet. Designed to accelerate deployment, it enables customers to create and then distribute content from wherever they are more quickly and cost effectively than using traditional fibre.

GCXN can be used for both primary and secondary distribution at broadcast quality. It comes as a standalone service or complementary to satellite services. It can also be used for disaster recovery and monitoring of video services, exploiting the almost universal access enabled by use of the Internet.

Globecast will also focus at IBC on managing its portfolio of services with a real-time digital tool that can be used from anywhere, again exploiting Internet connectivity. Called My Globecast, this was designed in partnership with some of its customers to simplify common management tasks. Customers have access to their services via a single click and can manage their media management and distribution-related services. Functions include services supervision, incident management and planned maintenance communication, as well as overviewing associated playout and VoD services.
