GlobeCast - Orange mobile TV

For GlobeCast, this represents an essential upgrade of its Orange-dedicated headend, which will allow the 61 television and 16 radio channels currently delivered by GlobeCast, to be distributed in a very high-quality, low-bit rate format. Subscribers to Orange's mobile TV services will benefit from a clear improvement in picture quality and quality of service. The Envivio mobile TV headend features the world's first and only multi-rate, multi-resolution and multi-standard encoder that outputs eight simultaneous profiles from a single video input. For Orange, this means a much greater interoperability among a wide variety of handsets, with multiple profiles generated from one input.

GlobeCast - Mobile TV subscribers

GlobeCast, a subsidiary of France Telecom, is a world leader in mobile TV delivery, currently managing the aggregation and delivery of 100 television and radio channels for Orange subscribers in France, the United Kingdom and Switzerland.
