Geevs gets Millbank vote for BBC Parliament

Millbank Studios have taken delivery of a Geevs Broadcast Video Server from Gee Broadcast to service the digital channel BBC Parliament, transmitting 24 Hours a day from Millbank's Studio in Westminster.
The Geevs, which can play out four independent channels while recording a fifth, is used to transmit promos, stings and highlights during live parliamentary broadcasts, and programmes such as ‘The Record’, the review of the day in parliament, and ‘Politique’, an in depth look at the politics of Europe. BBC Parliament is broadcast on Cable, Satellite and Freeview.
Millbank Studios' application utilises Geevs Autorun Automation software to compile playlists which can be activated at a preset time or by an external trigger.
“We had seen the Geevs in operation before and were impressed by its simplicity of operation,” said Nick Hattingh, Chief Engineer at Millbank.
The project was on a tight timescale and had to be completed before Parliament reconvened after the Easter recess.
“The box was delivered on Thursday and we were on air Saturday - almost a week early,” added Hattingh.
