DIGICASTER® Network Services

The DIGICASTER® Way - Lower Costs, Low Latency and High Quality

Once you are on the DIGICASTER® video network, you have connectivity not only to your own nodes but also a variety of video destinations and switches. These include, NBC, CNN, Fox, inDemand, Encompass and others. You also have connectivity to DCL’s fully licensed, full arc Earth Station for uplinking and up to 32 simultaneous Vyvx® ports since DCL is a Vyvx® First Video Affiliate. Our 24x7x365 manned network operations center (NOC) monitors all client circuit connections around the clock to insure your circuit is functional when needed and notifies you by your method of choice when an issue occurs.

DCL’s DIGICASTER® Appliances use Business Class Internet circuits from your premises to access the DIGICASTER® Video Network. We deliver high quality HD and SD video transport with low latency for both occasional use and permanent circuits. This means huge savings to businesses that currently have large monthly recurring local loop charges for circuits connecting to the major video switches.
