GlobeCast offers coverage on some 28 satellites worldwide, reaching all key television markets.

Media Asset Management: live demonstrations to help simplify workflow: Broadcasters, content providers and telcos will be treated to a live demo at the booth by GlobeCast and NETIA which will illustrate the operations of a tapeless environment from ingest to quality control, editing, archiving and multi-platform delivery, thus allowing potential users to monetise content and simplify their workflows.
