GlobeCast, PanAmSat, Scientific-Atlanta debut HD distribution platform

GlobeCast, PanAmSat and Scientific-Atlanta have joined forces to offer a turnkey HDTV satellite distribution platform on the Galaxy 13 North American spacecraft.

By integrating the end-to-end resources necessary to enable quality HDTV transmission, the service will allow programmers to beam HDTV signals via satellite to cable and broadcast affiliates for live or pre-scheduled events such as sports, concerts, or PPV, as well as full-time HDTV channels.

GlobeCast will manage end-to-end HDTV transmissions and connect customers from its digital media teleport in Los Angeles, using Scientific-Atlanta’s PowerVu HD encoding and digital content distribution system, and PanAmSat’s Galaxy 13 satellite.

Established cable networks and start-up channels can tap this HDTV program delivery platform, as well as a variety of associated GlobeCast services including master control, playout, ad and live feed insertion, remote video production, studio, and post-production services.
