The project was to provide an online booking system to allow broadcasters to book interviews with providers of expert opinion over the Internet. The booking system was then developed to be used by the switching center to manage all their switches. The booking system took 2 months to implement and went live in January 2001.
TWO MAJOR DEVELOPMENTS AT GLOBELYNX
Monday, 08 December 2008
Globelynx is pleased to announce the interconnection of its fibre network with Cantos Communications (www.cantos.com). The immediate effect of this is that Globelynx connected cameras and studios instantly and without any modification or additional equipment purchase, become dual use platforms- broadcasting and webcasting enabled.
Users can now send video from their cameras/studios to their own websites, other websites or even by e-mail to targeted clients. Graphics such as charts can be added and live webcast events are possible too. There is no need for production crews to come to site.
In a related development the few remaining cameras not already connected to the Globelynx network can now avail of the above and the Globelynx managed route to the broadcasters simply by registering on our web enabled booking system.
There is no cost to do this and no circuit change is necessary. To make this possible Globelynx has activated its multiple incoming circuits from BT-Tower. The Globelynx booking system simply allocates an incoming circuit to route such cameras to its master control for onward switching to any UK or global broadcaster.
The instant advantage is that the external broadcasting process becomes professionally managed through the Globelynx 24/7 manned Master Control. The booking process by the broadcasters is made verifiable, easier and more efficient for your Press Departments and support teams by the Globelynx web enabled booking system.
The Globelynx network carried record numbers of bookings in September and October in 2008 namely 418 and 588 bookings respectively.
