GlobeCast assists Cote d’Ivoire’s first private channel


GlobeCast was chosen by TAM TAM TV, the first private television channel in Côte d’Ivoire, to provide a broadcast solution that combines remote broadcast delivery via internet with satellite distribution of the general entertainment channel.

GlobeCast’s broadcast solution allows TAM TAM TV to have total control of its content from its control room in Abidjan, thanks to a simple Internet connection, and within the budget of a start-up channel.

TAM TAM TV’s programmes, managed locally and autonomously by the channel, are sent via the Internet to GlobeCast’s technical operations centre in Paris. Technology developed by GlobeCast and integrated into a PC-compatible content management programme also allows TAM TAM TV to construct its daily playlist from Côte d’Ivoire, and to send and control its delivery via internet to the European satellite distribution server in Paris, itself connected to the EUROBIRD 9 satellite platform.

GlobeCast has also set up a return feed via internet that allows TAM TAM TV to monitor the signal in real time from its office in Côte d’Ivoire.

The major advantages of the end-to-end solution offered to TAM TAM TV include its cost-effectiveness and its portability, allowing the channel to supervise and even modify its programming from any Internet connection.
