Globecast services for Cannes Film Festival

May 19, 2014

Globecast is providing both ad-hoc outside broadcast (OB) and host broadcaster services at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. The 67th edition of the world’s most famous film festival is running from 14th – 24rd May and is being chaired by New Zealand director Jane Campion.

Globecast is providing onsite capabilities for broadcasters who require access to reporting services with a standup position near Cannes’ harbour. Playout and fully manned live position is available for both SD/HD. Dedicated SNGs and ENG crews on request. The global distribution is via satellite or fibre. These services – booked onsite or via Globecast’s booking facility – allow broadcasters to act fast when required with transmission and satellite costs included so they can quickly file up-to-the-minute reports.

Globecast is also providing international distribution for the host broadcaster via fibre to Paris and satellite for global coverage. Two SNGs are being deployed. Globecast is also supplying monocam when necessary for live interviews.

Marie-Noelle Janaszkiewicz, Senior Sales Engineer at Globecast says, “The Cannes Film Festival is a very high profile international event and we are once again proud to be assisting in bringing it to the world. There’s always breaking news and we are here and ready to help those broadcasters in need with a ready-to-use service package.”
