GlobeCast Covers Cannes International Film Festival Using Hybrid Technology
GlobeCast, using a combination of satellite, fiber, and IP technology, offered services from the famous red carpet of the Palais des Festivals this year for the 66th edition of the Cannes International Film Festival. The event was held from May 15 to May 26 and was chaired by Steven Spielberg.
Major broadcasters relied on GlobeCast for on-site production services as well as complete end-to-end transmission using satellite, dynamic synchronous transfer mode fiber, and Ethernet connectivity. By making use of all these diverse means of transport, GlobeCast was able to provide cost-effective, high-quality coverage for television channels around the globe.
GlobeCast’s technical operations on site included standup positions just across from Cannes’ beautiful harbor, as well as playout and global content delivery solutions.
