DIGICASTER® PLATFORM . . . HOW DID WE GET HERE

Digital Comm Link (DCL), a corporation based in Florida, has been involved in the broadcast video transmission industry since 1996.  This includes the operation of both C-band and Ku-band mobile satellite trucks, a Class B teleport, and multiple talking head live shot studios.  All of DCL’s studios were connected via a fiber-optic mesh network, which came with a costly monthly recurring cost.  Towards the end of 2011, DCL was faced with the challenge of finding a more cost effective way of operating and expanding their studio network.  After significant research, it was determined that the best solution would be to develop an Internet based transmission platform for delivering their video content . . . and that was the inception of the DIGICASTER® platform.

Development took approximately a year and a half before the environment was robust and stable enough to successfully traverse the Internet, overcoming the inherent packet loss issues, while still delivering flawless video.  After successfully using the technology at their studio facilities for over a year, DCL released the platform to the market.  Since its release, the product has been accepted as a viable transmission solution by many of the major USA based broadcast networks, which have integrated DIGICASTER® equipment into the network ingest facilities.

Over the past five years, we have continued development of our DIGICASTER® technology, adding additional features and functionality to satify and exceed market requirements.  In an effort to promote our brand globally and increase the global network footprint, we began an expansion initiative in Latin Ameriac in Q4 of 2016.  With this expansion progressing successfully, we kicked off our expansion efforts to the UK and EU in Q4 of 2017 and assigned DIGICASTER LTD the exclusive distribution channel for DIGICASTER® products in these geographic regions.
