At the 2018 NAB Show in Las Vegas in April, Globecomm will present its automated and virtualized approach to video content creation and delivery, including a virtualized headend and a cloud-based over-the-top (OTT) platform. The solutions are designed to support SD, HD, HEVC, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 from a unified platform.

At NAB, Globecomm will present Vector, a virtualized video headend system that the company introduced last October. Vector is intended to provide a single vendor-agnostic platform for media processing, packaging, and customization of video content from acquisition and contribution to playout and distribution. Leveraging Globecomm's satellite, IP and fiber content delivery networks, along with access to AWS at several datacenter locations, Vector is designed to deliver video content across multiple platforms including OTT, DTH, IPTV, cable, satellite, and terrestrial TV, with high availability and in all compression formats.

Globecomm's latest version of its Tempo OTT cloud video platform for enterprise applications is designed to be deployed on-premises or in the cloud to allow enterprises to securely deliver live and on-demand interactive corporate training, communications and distance learning content on any screen. Tempo's OTT video platform supports distribution over satellite, dedicated terrestrial networks and IP.
