NEP has worked with BBC Studios Events to provide facilities for the host broadcasts operation in celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee earlier this month.

Overseen by project manager Richard Lancaster, NEP delivered the outside broadcast across five separate events, including the BBC Platinum Jubilee Concert and Pageant.

NEP outside broadcast trucks, including Venus, Sargasso and Voyager, provided coverage with a range of cameras. The BBC was the host broadcaster.

The bank holiday weekend started with the Queen’s birthday parade on Thursday, followed by the lighting of the Jubilee beacons. Saturday hosted the centre piece event of the weekend – the BBC Platinum Jubilee Concert outside Buckingham Palace. Collaborating with BBC Events, BT Broadcast & Media delivering host connectivity and Creative Technology, a spectacular event was delivered – a fitting tribute to Her Majesty’s 70 years of service.

NEP Connect provided camera crew and connectivity to BBC Studios Kids & Family for live inserts into CBBC Mash-Up and Blue Peter with presenters and Stanley the puppet monster interviewing all the guest artists backstage at the concert.

Creative Technology provided the technical delivery of the beautiful Buckingham Palace projections and main stage LED screens for the celebrations. Custom graphics were displayed across the screens by NorthHouse Creative, with camera imagery provided by NEP for the broadcast production. The LED screens were also used for Trooping the Colour on Thursday, the thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral on Friday and the pageant on Sunday.

NEP provided the broadcast coverage from the pageant, as it celebrated the many years of Her Majesty’s reign.

Simon Moorhead, managing director, NEP UK Broadcast Services, said: “It is an honour for NEP and the entire team to be entrusted with the broadcast technical facilitation of such a momentous occasion by our partners at BBC Studios, and we value very highly our relationship and partnership.

“This was a truly joyous, uplifting and patriotic service to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service. There’s always an incredible weight of responsibility in the delivery of any major host broadcast, but none more than the world’s celebration of Her Majesty’s historic reign.”
