IDEAL Systems has been selected by Globecast to build new broadcast facilities in Los Angeles and Miami, building on the success of the facilities it constructed for the company in Singapore.
“We are excited to be able to bring the proven content preparation efficiencies of our Media Factory — launched last month in Amsterdam — and the cost efficiency of our streamlined playout infrastructure to the heart of the American broadcast market here in Los Angeles,” says Jonathan Morley, chief technology officer of Globecast Americas. “At the same time we are establishing a brand-new facility in Miami to support the Latin American broadcast community based there. We wanted IDEAL Systems on board to complete the design and build of the facilities on time and on budget. IDEAL Systems offers us a unique blend of broadcast software and hardware architects and engineers, combined with the best broadcast interior design and build team we have seen.”
“This is the first time an Asian-based broadcast systems integrator has been contracted to build cutting edge broadcast systems and state-of-the-art facilities in the U.S. and is indicative of IDEAL Systems’ commitment to providing the highest international quality systems, design, and value to our customers,” says Fintan Mc Kiernan, CEO, IDEAL Systems Singapore.
