Asia Broadcasting Television Revs Up with RocketStream for Content Delivery for Thai Cable Operators

(Wireless News Via Acquire Media NewsEdge)
RocketStream, a subsidiary of Voyant International and a developer of
technologies and solutions to accelerate digital content delivery over
high-bandwidth IP networks, announced that the Asia Broadcasting
Television Company (ABtv), a Thai aggregator and distributor of
television content has adopted the RocketStream file transfer
acceleration solution for its long-distance media ingestion needs.

ABtv said it obtains media content around the globe and distributes
these programs via satellite to cable television broadcasters
throughout Thailand. In order to aggregate this content from its
originating locations to ABtv's headquarters, the company uses
high-bandwidth Internet and private network connections.

RocketStream is an all-software-based data transfer suite that can
accelerate file transfers up to 200 times faster than FTP.

"We are now using Rocket stream to accelerate our media delivery
between ABtv in Thailand and our partner company, Asia Broadcasting
International, in the USA," said Chirasak Sriwirom, managing director
of ABtv. "We regularly transfer 10 to 15 GB of data between these
locations, which are connected with a high bandwidth, but also high
latency, data pipe. RocketStream has simply and economically
transformed an IT headache into a streamlined and elegant solution."

William Chen, RocketStream's vice president of enterprise sales, said,

"The power and simplicity of the RocketStream solution are well suited
to media applications in the Pacific Rim, where data transfer distances
tends to be very high and media markets are growing rapidly."

"ABtv is the leading content distributor in Thailand," explained James
Ng, managing director of Technical Media Services Pte. Ltd.,
RocketStream's distributor in Southeast Asia. "We've been gratified to
be able to assist them in their mission of providing global television
content to the Thai population in a timely and reliable fashion by
supplying ABtv with the powerful RocketStream data transfer
acceleration solution."
