Globecomm Secures New Deals to Deliver State of the Art IP-Based, Integrated Broadcast Systems
HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--
Globecomm has been selected to deliver high-definition digital broadcast
technologies to a premier Asian broadcaster, as well as to a major state
university system in the United States. The deals combined are valued at
$17 million. Both customers will realize major cost, operational and
efficiency benefits through the use of Globecomm's end-to-end IP
The systems being installed cover the full gamut of production, editing
and transmission and include cameras, audio and video recording for
production, graphics and teleprompters, content ingest, editing and news
room support, broadcast servers and routers, inter-facility links,
inter-format dubbing, playout scheduling and transmission.
A modular approach design provides multiple paths for content routed
through the system, whether for production, editing or transmission.
This eliminates single points of failure and reduces the total cabling
required. All-IP technology eliminates protocol and format conversions
which add complexity ad impact production quality.
The premier Asian broadcaster selected Globecomm to design and integrate
a multi-studio facility that also includes a fiber distribution network,
content contribution system, network operations center and disaster
recovery facility. According to Globecomm vice president Dov Cydulkin,
"The new infrastructure will provide the company with flexibility and
the capacity to grow as technology changes, based on our use of
best-of-breed, open-standards technology."
The state university system will implement Globecomm's broadcast systems
platform within its new facility serving the School of Communications
and Journalism. According to Globecomm vice president Gerard Johnston,
"The new broadcast facility will give students in the schools of
Communication and Journalism experience with the most advanced
production, editing and transmission systems in use today."
