WRN Adds New State-Of-The-Art Facilities

International broadcast services company WRN, have unveiled its new brand identity to reflect the comprehensive range of broadcast services it provides for television and radio broadcasters, content owners and brands worldwide
WRN Broadcast has expanded its offering to become a comprehensive global broadcast services provider following its acquisition of TSI Broadcast last year. The company now offers clients an end-to-end solution for ingest, content management, playout, encoding / multiplexing and worldwide distribution via fibre and satellite, building on its heritage as an international radio distributor.
The expanded offering is made possible by WRN Broadcast’s brand new, state-of-the-art Media Centre, which offers clients the latest in broadcasting and transmission technologies. At the same time, WRN Broadcast has doubled the size of its technical team in order to provide clients with the highest possible service levels and expertise. In terms of new technology, the Media Centre comprises enterprise class hardware and software, including Pharos Mediator 4, which allows customers to manage and browse their content remotely, Omneon Video Networks, which offer a robust and future-proof server solution, Harmonic Encoding and Multiplexing capable of both SD and HD, plus Evertz Monitoring and Alarm Systems.
WRN Broadcast also announced that it has been contracted to provide content management and multi channel playout services to Top Up TV, the UK's leading DTT pay TV service. Since January 2010, WRN Broadcast has instigated a bespoke end-to-end tapeless workflow, which includes acquisition and file management from over 20 distributors, including some of the best known names in the global content industry. The solution also incorporates library management, ingest, file delivery, remote editorial compliance review, storage and archive, playout and distribution. All of this is enhanced by utilising a consolidated Pharos asset management system.
David Treadway, Managing Director at WRN Broadcast said: "We intend to build on our broadcasting and digital expertise to offer a wide range of innovative and cost-effective services to international television broadcasters and brands, in addition to our longstanding radio clients. The new Media Centre is central to this and will enable WRN Broadcast to take centre stage in TV and digital platforms as well as radio broadcasting. We are delighted to welcome Top Up TV as a client."
