NEP’s Brian Clark reflects on a successful year for the company

“NEP is proud to work in support of its great clients such as Aurora Media Worldwide (AMW), DAZN, Sky, S+V, IMG, ITN, BBC and WBS with some notable events such as Wimbledon, the Commonwealth Games, indoor and outdoor athletics events, ITV for the FA Cup and horse racing, Extreme E, Silverstone and Nitro RX, and the WTA to name a few,” says Brian Clark, sales director for NEP Major Events. “We are continually working on outstanding sports productions and driving innovation, recently being named for an award alongside AMW and Extreme E for their Season 1 coverage at the SVG Europe Sports TV Awards, for Outstanding Production Achievement and One Planet Award for Sustainability in Sports TV.”

NEP recently launched TFC Flow a powerful and easy-to-use IP-based DIVA tool which offers complete control of data, intercom, video and audio signal flow within a unified live event network. “It is managed through TFC – our proprietary web-based control platform, and debuted at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games,” says Clark. “We continue to push the boundaries with our remote broadcast solutions for our clients, with innovation on the signal acquisition and routing to our Mediabank media asset management tool, as well as new products we are developing now that will expand our media processing and media management toolkit.”

Clark says NEP will be growing its centralised production platform around the world, which leverages the power of the TFC control system. “This is a key factor for NEP and the end-to-end solutions we want to offer our partners,” he adds. “By looking at the entire ecosystem, we can ensure that we offer the correct solution for each project and production rather than the traditional areas that facilities companies were expected to deliver.”

“We’re continuing to develop a global production ecosystem and our cloud-based solutions, working towards our vision where our clients and their production teams can collaborate with each other and create, manage and exchange content with the world,” he continues. “This connected ecosystem will allow us to deploy a full suite of practical and user-friendly technologies such as cloud-based software products, like Mediabank, which will span our end-to-end capabilities in pre-production, production and post-production workflows.

“NEP is currently running cloud and virtualised production tools alongside our suite of more familiar broadcast technologies throughout the organisation. Across all our service lines, we have supported many traditional and non-traditional production platforms such as Twitch, DAZN, UEFA and many more who are all looking to the future of how our industry is evolving and reacting to the new technologies and opportunities. Centralised production is also at the core of our client discussions. More so than ever, we can work towards offering our clients support across a variety of services, products and end-to-end solutions to bring their production vision to life.”
