Globecast to showcase broadcast trends at Nab 2008

MUMBAI: Broadcast content management and delivery company GlobeCast will be demonstrating the latest trends in the international broadcasting environment at Nab 2008 in Las Vegas in April.

Media management, multiplatform solutions, HD, IPTV, Mobile TV and more will all be in the spotlight at its stand.

Broadcasters are becoming increasingly focused on content creation and looking to outsource their content management. In response, Globecast has added media management to its service offering and Arsenal TV in the UK and Ion Media Networks in the US are just the latest broadcasters to sign up. Operated from technical operations centers in central London and Sunrise, Florida, GlobeCast Media Management offers full playout, disaster recovery, programme substitution and more, under one roof.

Mobile TV : With standards developing for the next generation of mobile television, GlobeCast has been building partnerships for DVB-H experimentation. In Europe, the company already operates a 3G headend and delivers more than 100 live channels to Orange. In the US GlobeCast delivers, encodes and monitors 30 channels for market leader MobiTV.

IPTV: The company says that 2008 is the year of IPTV in the US and GlobeCast will be highlighting its role in the development of this emerging medium with a live demonstration at Nab. GlobeCast‘s subsidiary WorldTV recently launched an IPTV platform in Canada with NeuLion to bring multicultural content to new markets, and is also aggregating multinational content for a major US telecom company.

GlobeCast has gained its extensive knowledge and experience with IPTV in Europe as Orange‘s broadcast partner for Orange TV which has over one million subscribers.

NHD Makes its Mark: GlobeCast says that it has been involved with High Definition broadcast for more than ten years, and now offers permanent and ad-hoc services in HD worldwide. In the US, new HD-ready fiber capacity means that nearly every news or sport event can be broadcast across the nation or across the world in the highest possible quality.
