GlobeCast - a global content management and delivery company and subsidiary of France Telecom - has completed the build out of its new technical operations center (TOC) in Miami.

The new center is designed to support the company's newly inaugurated IPTV super headend, which is capable of aggregating hundreds of television signals from around the globe in MPEG-2 and MPEG-4. It will provide IP encapsulation and retransmission of content via satellite for distribution to local IPTV headends across North America. The upgrade of the Miami facility is a central component to the company's expanding offer of fully managed content delivery services for emerging IP-based video and rich media.

All current and future IPTV services, including IPTVComplete — a joint offering with Eagle Broadband providing more than 200 channels via IP video — will originate from the new TOC in Miami, situated at GlobeCast's existing 85,000sq ft digital broadcast complex.
