GlobeCast Americas Strengthens Ad Hoc Services, Latin America Team
GlobeCast Americas has created a dedicated Latin American sales team and strengthened ad hoc services in North America for the broadcast of major events, according to the company.
Already present with a major technical facility in southern Florida and with extensive satellite coverage of the entire Latin American region, GlobeCast has now created a dedicated sales team in Sunrise, FL led by Ricardo Flores, to cover this crucial market. The company also announced last year that it had extended its fiber network to Buenos Aires and São Paulo.
The Latin American sales team in Sunrise as well as the North American sales teams in New York and Los Angeles will provide content management, value-added services such as playout and origination, and global delivery of content to multiple platforms by satellite and fiber to broadcasters throughout the Americas. CEO Lisa Coelho says services offered will leverage GlobeCast’s capacity on 28 satellites worldwide and its proprietary, five-continent fiber network, the GlobeCast Backbone Network.
On the ad-hoc/contribution side, in North America, the company’s news and sports activities have been recentered and focused to specialize on large-scale major events, providing extensive ad-hoc playout and delivery services to major broadcast clients from around the region. In Latin America, GlobeCast will provide ad-hoc services to broadcasters and events of every type.
