GlobeCast and Shanghai Media Group team up

Chinese broadcaster Shanghai Media Group has teamed up with service provider GlobeCast to establish a fibre video link in and out of China, and provide a joint production and transmission service serving for international broadcasters.

The goal of the agreement is to combine SMG’s domestic Chinese capabilities with GlobeCast’s worldwide network and expertise to provide services to Chinese and international broadcasters based in China.

SMG and GlobeCast cooperation includes developing business with news and sports channels, rights holders, entertainment content producers and business TV customers.

SMG will provide equipment and facilities in China, including SNG trucks and flyaways, OB vans, tape playout feedpoints in Shanghai and Beijing, and domestic fibre links.

A new link will be established between SMG’s point of presence in Shanghai and GlobeCast’s point of presence in Hong Kong. From Hong Kong, GlobeCast will provide customers with access to its international fibre network in Asia, America, Africa and Europe.

GlobeCast will also offer access to its 12 teleports worldwide for satellite delivery.
