GlobeCast Australia Announce Major Upgrade

GlobeCast Australia have announced a major upgrade that will allow the company to deliver its customers the first high-quality MPEG-4 services on the Optus D2 DTH satellite platform.
GlobeCast Australia is the leading provider of broadcast services for Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands and is part of the worldwide GlobeCast group.
GlobeCast Australia's Chief Executive Simon Farnsworth said: "We have invested in MPEG-4 to give our customers access to the latest world-class technologies to help them innovate and grow."
GlobeCast will commence its new MPEG-4 service with its channel partner RTS SAT, the Australian arm of EURO World Network (EWN). EWN operates a DTH and IP service using GlobeCast Australia DTH distribution on Optus D2.
Farnsworth said MPEG-4 offers GlobeCast customers:
•Increased household penetration potential because of its higher-quality video delivery to large-screen flat-panel displays
•Higher-quality sound with an option for Dolby® audio
•Greater bandwidth efficiency and value
GlobeCast Australia's enhancement of its Optus D2 DTH platform includes upgrading four carriers to state-of-the art Thompson Video Networks MPEG-4/MPEG-2 encoders. The Optus D2 DTH platform covers Australia and New Zealand.
RTS SAT will be available in both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 until the end of the year.
