FRAMINGHAM, MA -- It has been a busy time lately for FPAC TV programming. We have many new specials, public service announcements (PSAs), and a lot of exciting new series shows. We’re stronger and better than ever before, and as always offering the most unique, fresh, and sometimes controversial programming you’re likely to see in Framingham.
In related news, FPAC is in the process of purchasing and installing a Video-On-Demand (VOD) server from Tightrope Media. You may ask, “What does this mean for Framingham television?”
Until now, FPAC’s fine programming was available only to the residents of Framingham. At FPAC, we felt that we were depriving the rest of the planet’s 5 billion inhabitants of the educational, funny, and unique programming that we show here, unavailable anywhere else. With the addition of this server, FPAC shows will be available 24 hours/day, 7 days/week, 365 days/year, ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.
The Cablecast SX VOD server makes our content available for viewing on demand over the Internet, to anyone, at any time. When a digital file arrives at FPAC, we will automatically transcode it for viewing and podcasting and then make the file available though the FPAC website.
FPAC will become global in reach, offering viewers up to 30,000 hours of programming at the click of a mouse. Viewers can receive automatic notifications of new content via RSS feeds, and can download programming to and iPod, iPhone, or similar mobile device for viewing on the go. So get ready, Framingham, for some international exposure!
