Globecomm provides entryway for mobile TV services
Globecomm recently introduced the SkyBorne Mobile media processing center for mobile TV. An extension of the company’s SkyBorne IPTV platform, it is aimed at providing users with a cost-effective, standards-based entry path into mobile video services.
The IP-based media processing center includes MPEG-4 AVC encoders, a digital rights management (DRM) scrambler, IP encapsulator, single frequency network (SFN) adaptor and distribution via satellite or fiber to the transmission tower network. Depending on a client's requirements, it can be configured for multiple distribution needs, from direct-to-home television origination to IPTV content acquisition, packaging and distribution. It is designed to be adaptable to mobile TV standards as they evolve.
