Globecast is showing its new Cloud Channel Playout solution for SD, HD and 4K channels. This is a media management service that provides market-friendly solutions to customers. Cloud playout significantly enhances service deployment efficiency, reduces time-to-market, and allows broadcasters to reach new international markets with lower upfront investment. This approach provides the ultimate in flexibility. The number of channels can be dynamically increased or reduced and the channel branding mix reshuffled for particular audiences and events.
The new Cloud Channel Playout service from Globecast also provides broadcasters with an opportunity to increase revenue from international markets by localization of advertisements, programming and channel branding at a country level, or even at a per-affiliate level, based on local consumer needs.

Globecast liveSpotter, which is available globally, is a significant extension of the company’s highly evolved media management capabilities and reflects the rapidly changing way that we consume content. It allows unlimited short-form VOD content to be created from a live feed, very quickly – close to real time – and for that content to then be shared across OTT, VOD and of course social media platforms.
