Globecast, the global solutions provider for media, is providing iN DEMAND, a distributor of transactional entertainment to MVPDs, with fibre and uplink disaster recovery (DR) services, including playout and PPV services for iN DEMAND’s live content and event channels.
iN DEMAND’s Chief Technology Officer John Vartanian commented, “We evaluated the market carefully for this project, and Globecast was chosen for its expertise in content delivery and excellent technical infrastructure at its Los Angeles facility. The combination of its Media Factory solution, cable satellite distribution and extensive fiber network infrastructure was the best fit for our disaster recovery needs. We are confident that Globecast is the ideal back-up service to safely automate and manage our PPV channels if the need arises.”
Under this disaster recovery agreement, Globecast will provide continuous channel origination and uplink services of select PPV channels for AMC-11/3 and SES-3/13 satellite transponders, as well as terrestrial connectivity of three multiplexes from iN DEMAND’s primary origination facility for uplink to AMC-11/3, SES-3/8 and SES-3/13 satellites.
