Globecomm has introduced Vector, a virtualized video headend system designed to support hundreds of channels and deliver content across multiple platforms. The IP-centric platform is intended to simplify the processing, packaging and customization of video content from acquisition and contribution to playout and distribution for delivery across DTH, OTT, IPTV, cable and terrestrial TV. It leverages Globecomm's satellite, IP and fiber content delivery networks and can be hosted on Globecomm's cloud network or implemented at a customer site.

"Vector marks the next step in the evolution of Globecomm's services for the media and entertainment industries, and is the culmination of many months of R&D research," said Chief Commercial Officer Bryan McGuirk. "We've spent decades building production facilities and broadcast centers, hosting and distributing high-value media content for linear broadcast and helping customers adapt it for OTT. The Vector virtualized video headend brings all of that capability together into one of the simplest, resilient and scalable solutions on the market."

Vector is designed to simplify multiple, interdependent processes - including new compression technologies, multiple video standards and encoding advances such as adaptive bitrate (ABR) - into software and data storage in an all-IP environment.

Vector will make its debut at NAB Show New York 2017 later this month.
