Content Creation and Delivery in the NAB2018 Show Limelight for GLOBECOMM

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, payTV operators, and enterprises want to succeed, they need to partner with a technology provider that offers reliable, adaptable, and cost-effective media platform and cloud solutions.

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 payTV providers can meet the demand for high-quality video on a wide range of devices while increasing bandwidth efficiency, boosting monetization, and reducing CAPEX.

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 multi-platform video content delivery. By offering support for the latest video formats and compression technologies including SD, HD, HEVC, MPEG-2, and MPEG-4, all from a unified platform, Globecomm assures content delivery in the formats every broadcaster needs.

Vector Virtualized Headend System Reduces Multi-Platform Video Delivery Costs
At the 2018 NAB Show, GLOBECOMM will present Vector, a state-of-the-art virtualized video headend system. Vector provides a single compact vendor-agnostic platform for media processing, packaging, and customization of video content — from acquisition and contribution to playout and distribution, and is scalable up to hundreds of channels. Leveraging GLOBECOMM's robust satellite, IP, and fiber content delivery networks, along with direct access to AWS at key data center locations, Vector can deliver video content across multiple platforms including OTT, DTH, IPTV, cable, satellite, and terrestrial TV, with high availability and in all compression formats.
     By replacing traditional data centers with a combination of software and compact data storage solutions, Vector significantly reduces rack space, cabling, and power requirements. Based on a predictable OPEX business model, Vector allows operators to launch new services and features with greater speed and cost efficiency.
