Globecast has lit up a new satellite platform on the AMC-11 satellite that will enable its clients to use DVB-S2 modulation for U.S. distribution to cable headends.
“This new platform on AMC-11 is in a very desirable orbital position,” Eddie Ferraro, manging director of The Americas for Globecast, said in a statement. “Using DVB-S2 modulation means we can offer a larger and more diverse range of premium cable distribution capacity, over and above our capacity on SES-3.”
AMC-11, which covers the North America and Central America regions, already hosts more than 70 major tier-1 channels, Globecast noted.
Soccet network Gol TV is the first to transition its HD feed onto Globecast’s new platform, which is out of its Culver City facility near Los Angeles.
