Revelation TV turns to Globecast

UK Christian broadcaster Revelation TV has tapped Globecast to provide playout capabilities including daily live feeds and schedule-driven recordings of the feeds, exception-based quality control of content and metadata supply to Revelation’s scheduling systems.

Revelation TVRevelation TV already uses Globecast to provide satellite capacity for distribution on the Sky platform from the 28.2° East position currently occupied by the Astra 2G satellite.

The channel is available in the UK on the Sky and Freesat platforms and across Europe via Roku’s media player.

Gordon Pettie, CEO at Revelation TV said: “After many years of managing our own playout, we felt it was time to enlist Globecast for this so we can increase our efficiency and concentrate on other areas of our business. Because we’ve already been working with Globecast for several years, we have a deep level of trust with them to provide the mix of broadcast business acumen and technical know-how we need to keep our channel running on a 24-hour, seven-day a week basis.”

Juliet Bayliss, sales director at Globecast said: “We’re delighted to be building upon our strong and highly valued relationship with Revelation TV to manage their playout operations. This is a great way for us to help them simplify their daily operations and optimize their business processes – both of which are hugely important for a 24/7 broadcaster.”
