Eutelsat Communications and Globecast, the global products provider for media, are partnering on a new media platform over the Americas. The new platform launched by both companies will allow broadcasters across the Americas to gain access to Globecast’s advanced media management platform designed for both linear television distribution and new media technologies, including streaming, local ad insertion, IoT services, HEVC encoding and regionalisation services. This distinctive capability will be provided from Globecast’s Culver City, CA teleport to Eutelsat’s Eutelsat 117 West A satellite at 117° West, a prime mid-arc video neighbourhood serving the Americas from Alaska to Argentina.

The platform can provide fleet protection and redundancy via the Eutelsat 113 West A satellite. Located just four degrees away with the same transponder plan and polarisation, and combined with Eutelsat’s dual-feed CATV upgrade programme for cable operators throughout the Americas, this two-satellite platform will offer protection and restoration capabilities for programmers.
