Systems integration specialist Broadcast Networks completed a number of 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," said 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."

As the preferred SI partner for Chellomedia, Broadcast Networks completed various key infrastructure projects for the international media company including the installation of a 24 channel playout system for a new Arts channel, the rebuild of Chellomedia's master control room, an entire upgrade of the broadcaster's automation system to ITX2 and the installation of a number of smaller playout systems.

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, enabling meeting to be streamed over the internet, and the design and build of an 18 camera armoured surveillance vehicle for the Dutch police (pictured above), which is now being regularly used to support large scale events.

"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," concluded Haye.
