January 4, 2010 – CALGARY: CSC Global Technologies Inc. of Calgary, through its wholly owned subsidiary MTPBets Ltd., has launched a commercial Closed Circuit Video Streaming Solution for the horse racing industry. The Closed Circuit Solution allows the race tracks to stream live video from the tracks to Off-Track Betting facilities around the world over the Internet. According to CSC President Garry Saundh, “the Closed Circuit Solution enables every track to increase its revenue by using the OTB facilities located around the world without incurring extra cost. This solution is also highly beneficial to the OTB operators as it eliminates the need for satellite decoders and the associated monthly fees”.
Conventionally, video feeds of the races is transmitted to the OTB using the satellite transmission services. This service is highly expensive and prohibits average race tracks from going to the OTB’s. Similarly, not all establishments can afford the cost of renting decoders to receive the video. “This hurdle is the biggest factor in limiting the growth of this industry. Fewer people are going to the race tracks and even fewer OTB operators can afford covering wide range of tracks. Limited choice for off-track wagering leads to lower interest in the sport and this stems its growth” – says Garry Saundh.

January 15, 2010 – CALGARY: CSC Global Technologies Inc. of Calgary, through its wholly owned subsidiary Canstarz Satellite Solutions, has launched its first data center in the Foothills Industrial Park to provide colocation and IP/Data services. Company operates one of the most secure, reliable, flexible and cost effective data center in Calgary. Overcoming the logistical problems of bringing fiber optic to the Foothills Industrial area, the data center is now direct connected to the back bone through the fiber with carrying capacity of 190 Gbps. “It is the first such undertaking to bring economical IP solution to this area” says Garry Saundh, President of CSC Global Technologies. “In 2007, we needed a dedicated VLan solution from our facility to our data center in Toronto. We found that there was no single solution to cost effectively deliver data from our location. We ended up using a hybrid of wireless and wired connections, which proved to be unreliable, extremely expensive coupled with unsatisfactory service. So in 2009, we decided to build the data center and not only overcome our own issues related to the service, but also provide similar solutions to businesses located in this area” says Garry Saundh.
The key feature of the data center is security. Apart from implementing the standard security features like the other data centers, its physical location is one of the key offerings when it comes to security. The facility is located in the Foothills Industrial Park, 21 Km. away from downtown, in the South-East quadrant of the city, on 10 acre industrial lot with only two buildings at the location. The facility is low key, low profile, low visibility and away from any and all areas of attraction and will continue to providing services in the most adverse conditions.
“The large open space allows the facility to be supported by all the redundancy services such as emergency power, cooling, fuel storage etc. being located within easy reach. The facility is highly flexible. We can provide our customer anything from 1/4 of a cabinet, to building them a completely stand-alone facility to host their equipment” adds Garry Saundh.
“Our company is very aggressive with our pricing packages and generally meets or beats most of the price packages available today in Calgary. Our philosophy is to provide you the best value for your money”.
