All-IP HDTV Systems to Bring Major Cost, Operational and Efficiency Benefits to Premier Asian Broadcaster and U.S. University System
HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 2, 2014 — 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 infrastructure design.
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 and 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.”
