Planetcast to launch improved cloud delivery solution at Broadcast Asia 2019
MUMBAI: Digital broadcast technology provider Planetcast Media Services will be launching the new and improved cloud delivery solution Recaster at Broadcast Asia 2019.
The new solution uses the internet or any existing IP based infrastructure and an optimised open sourced communication protocol to distribute the TV channels. Recaster empowers customers to create their own content delivery network, completely managed by Planetcast.
The Recaster, which is fully equipped to manage complex workflows in a cloud-based environment, has already been providing un-interrupted services across geographies. During the launch, Planetcast will give an exclusive preview of Recaster at its booth number 4C2-01 at Broadcast Asia 2019 along with a live demo of its disruptive solution for the visitors at the show.
Recaster is an IP based content delivery service which enables broadcasters/teleport operators and headends to deliver content from anywhere to anywhere, in a transport stream format, across the globe. It offers a new way of transporting compressed TV signals from play-out locations to head-ends etc.
