Point.360 deploys HD satellite content delivery

Point.360, a provider of media management services, has announced the deployment and availability of a new global satellite transmission service for spot distribution, syndicated program distribution and events.

Point.360’s service, which handles both SD and HD programming and is based on GlobeCast’s satellite and fiber network, is currently being used to deliver this season’s programming in HD to CTV, the Canadian broadcaster.

The new service was designed to make it easier for content owners to securely deliver HD programming in 1080i and 720p HD, with Dolby 5.1 sound and close captioning to North America via satellite on a recurring or occasional basis.

Point.360’s customers can purchase delivery service either by show or in 15-minute increments. The service uses GlobeCast’s 270Mb/s SDI facility-to-facility circuits, satellite facilities, round-the-clock video network monitoring, and secure signal transmission capacity.

Dedicated fiber facilities are provisioned between GlobeCast’s Los Angeles digital media teleport and Point.360’s Highland facility for instant transmission of live broadcast video. In addition, GlobeCast has provisioned 270Mb/s SDI digital video paths that interconnect to Point.360 Highland via the LA Switch, allowing either company complete control without having to book any external connection.
