NAB 2018: Globecomm To Exhibit New Content Creation, Delivery Systems
A key challenge in the media environment today is how to rapidly produce and deliver a growing amount of video content to multiple platforms, networks, and devices. If broadcasters, pay-TV operators, and enterprises want to succeed, they need to partner with a technology provider that offers reliable, adaptable, and cost-effective media platforms and cloud solutions.
As one of the few infrastructure providers with an end-to-end workflow solution that includes global satellite, terrestrial, and cloud distribution options, Globecomm provides operators with the flexibility and scalability that is critical for multiplatform video content delivery. By offering support for the latest video formats and compression technologies including SD, HD, HEVC and MPEG-2 and -4, all from a unified platform, Globecomm assures content delivery in the formats every broadcaster needs.
At the 2018 NAB Show, Globecomm will present its end-to-end automated and virtualized approach to content creation and delivery. With Globecomm’s video infrastructure solutions, broadcasters and pay-TV providers can meet the demand for high-quality video on a wide range of devices while increasing bandwidth efficiency, boosting monetization, and reducing CAPEX.
Also during NAB 2018, Globecomm Vice President of Technology Augusto Villasenor will speak at the Broadcast Engineering and Information Technology Conference. The presentation will take place on April 8, from 3:20 to 4:40 p.m. in room N260 of the Las Vegas Convention Center. During the presentation, Villasenor will describe a next-gen approach centered on the development of a new media center — from program preparation to playout processes to distribution headend — within a Media Enterprise Service Bus virtualized video infrastructure.
