Singapore – GlobeCast has expanded its facilities in Asia with the addition of a new multi-channel HD playout facility, as well as new staff for post-production and playout services. Thanks to this expansion, new post-production and creative services will also be available from GlobeCast’s Parkview Square facilities. These facilities will expand to house the increased range of services. The close collaboration with Technicolor that made this expansion possible comes at a time when GlobeCast has been increasing its range of services in the area of media asset management and playout worldwide. With the integration of the post-production and creative activities of Technicolor in Singapore, GlobeCast can now offer promo/interstitial creation, audio dubbing, subtitling and compliance editing services in addition to playout, program origination and digital media asset management services – providing a complete one-stop shop for broadcasters. This expansion also comes in the context of geographic growth for the company in Asia. Recently, GlobeCast has announced its addition of a fiber link to PayTV operator Astro in Malaysia and Shanghai Media Group in China. GlobeCast already offers broadcasters connectivity to major operators such as nowTV in Hong Kong and Singtel in Singapore. The GlobeCast Backbone Network, a fiber network with connectivity to 33 PoPs around the world, provides broadcasters access to PayTV markets on five continents.
