Broadcast television in an IP world

The OTT side is already being implemented by a major broadcast customer of
ours.

Right now they simply rebroadcast their news, both live and prerecorded,
i'm assuming until the national networks and syndicators will allow
reasonable OTT licensing fee's.

They use a product called SyncBak (for which they've also invested in
heavily) and offer the streams for all of their market stations nationwide.
You can in turn use a Roku or Roku like STB to ascertain the feed, live and
in HD at that.

We currently provide the fiber and peering facilities, and are intimately
familiar with the network and video production side.

Very neat product, at that...
