AMC-11 now uses DVB-S2 modulation to offer a range of premium cable distribution capacity. Globecast also offers origination and playout services supported by Media Factory to provide end-to-end technology. The platform and uplink are managed out of Globecast’s Culver City, Calif., facility.

GolTV, a 24/7 sports channel, is among the first companies to transition their HD feed to Globecast’s new platform.

Globecast is a provider of media management, distribution, monetization and contribution systems.
