For the past 20 years DigiCAP Co.,Ltd. has used advanced software development to make television and telecom systems easier to use, less costly, and more profitable.
Last week, DigiCAP posted the industry’s first ATSC 3.0 cloud air chain on AWS Marketplace
This is a cloud version of DigiCaster, DigiCAP’s popular ATSC 3.0 air chain which is now available as a software download. For large station groups looking to accelerate their ATSC 3.0 station rollouts this cloud version will enable them to download an air chain directly into their cloud infrastructure. For small stations looking to limit capital expenses this cloud version offers a technology purchase as a low-cost subscription.
Why start an ATSC 3.0 cloud approach?
Faster installation and subscription purchases are advantages to cloud applications in any industry. But there is a strategic reason for broadcasters to get started with ATSC 3.0 cloud systems.
The end game with ATSC 3.0 is not just to get stations on the air, it is to reinvent broadcasting as a high-tech, growth industry. Technology is being developed to manage broadcast opportunities in targeted advertising, datacasting, autonomous vehicles, advanced alerting, distance learning, and 5G integration. While there are big differences in these systems, they all share common needs for implementation. They all need to share or use data, need automation, and need to be able to change quickly. These are functions best delivered with software/cloud, not hardware, television systems.
DigiCAP is working with many technically progressive US broadcasters with an eye toward a more profitable future.
In a few weeks DigiCAP will have yet another post on AWS Marketplace that will take their DigiCaster post a step further. Stay tuned.
