The DIGICASTER Platform

Digital Comm Link has been providing broadcast quality live video transport to the major networks, both domestically and internationally, since 1995. Throughout the state of Florida we have built a vast private network allowing our multiple studio locations direct connection back to our core facility, with access to our Teleport / Earth Station and to major video switches such as Vyvx®. Via this network, we deliver thousands of hours of video transport annually.
