Globecast, WinMedia Partner With Turnkey Solution for Satellite TV

WinMedia, vendor of content management software for broadcasters, and Orange’s media services company Globecast, have agreed to integrate and distribute each other’s technologies. The tools to prepare, plan and playout the content encompassed in WinMedia solutions have been combined with Globecast’s satellite delivery platform. Six leading TV channels in North and West Africa already use this package.

The deployed solutions feature WinMedia Traffic tools for ingest and scheduling, which are installed in the broadcasters’ premises, as well as a WinMedia Playout system, set up in Globecast’s technical operation center in Paris. “This innovative remotely controlled solution enables broadcasters to run their channel playout operations from their own premises, controlling costs and enabling them to be completely hands-on with their channel. We have a unique combination of network reach and satellite capacity, which combined with WinMedia solutions means we can offer broadcasters of all sizes a one-stop offering that covers content preparation, management as well as local and global delivery,” explains Wenping Jiang, product manager at Globecast.

“Thanks to WinMedia TV comprehensive suite, broadcasters quickly prepare and preview their playlists, add any number of upper/lower third graphics using the intuitive WinPublish module and send their programming to the fully redundant playout system in Paris,” adds Pascal Cima, CEO at WinMedia Europe.

Each playout server can simultaneously broadcast up to four different channels in HD and/or SD formats along with the relevant CGs that project the style and individual look of each program and channel. From there, the channels are sent via satellite to a Globecast teleport for uplink onto the satellite platform.
