Project-flurry for Broadcast Networks
Systems integration specialist Broadcast Networks completed a number of diverse broadcast system projects during 2013 for international organisations such as Chellomedia, News UK and the Dutch Parliament.
“2013 was a successful year [for] Broadcast Networks with both new and repeat business,” says managing director Tom Haye. “As we start 2014, our new partnership with IEC gives us the investment we need to push the company to the next level, while the expansion of our team allows us to deliver the added value customers now demand.”
For Slovenian national broadcaster RTV, Broadcast Networks was contracted by Sony PSE to design and build two new 16-channel Outside Broadcast vehicles, which are now being used to capture various sporting events including the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia.
Back in the UK, Broadcast Networks installed a Master Control Room and three new television studios at News UK’s headquarters in London. The studios are now being used by The Sun newspaper to create news content for its online editions.
Other notable projects completed during 2013 include the installation of audio and video equipment at the Dutch Parliament.
Haye adds: “The traditional broadcast model is changing, with 4K now a serious contender as a new archive format and IP and data manipulation becoming increasingly crucial in our customers’ daily lives. As a systems integrator with experience in the live production and playout arenas, Broadcast Networks is ideally placed to deliver the leading edge solutions our customers demand and consolidate our position as a leading international systems integrator.”
