CDN optimisation from Globecast
Globecast’s Optim'Net solution is a CDN off-loading service which relies on the audience watching the content to participate in the delivery to other viewers
This month will be the NAB debut of Globecast's Optim'Net CDN cost optimisation technology. Though the CDN price-per-GB is regularly decreasing, CDN costs for media delivery continue to grow. Globecast’s Optim'Net solution is a CDN off-loading service - which integrates seamlessly with any CDN vendor – and relies on the audience watching the content to participate in the delivery to other viewers. Extra benefits include improved network performance and better user experience, especially a reduced start time for media playback.
Globecast will also highlighting its recently launched Disaster Recovery Playout Services, headquartered in Globecast’s Culver City Media Center in L.A. For broadcasters, networks and studios requiring geographic proximity to Southern California or requiring access to the L.A. market, Globecast provides infrastructure, personnel and expertise to manage low-cost disaster recovery feeds for primary networks.
