TBS Targets European Expansion With New UK Broadcast Operations Centre

News Image
Telstra Broadcast Services (TBS) has reaffirmed its commitment to the European market with the opening of a new facility in London.

The company has officially opened its new UK Broadcast Operations Centre (BOC) in London's Docklands, hosting a Master Control Room, office space, and lab/workshop area designed to facilitate tests and builds. The low latency, high proximity BOC has been designed specifically for live video productions and will assist in managing and monitoring content to and from Telstra's EMEA customers 24/7 on the company's global fibre, satellite, internet, and partner networks.

Located in Telstra's London Hosting Centre, the BOC is also designed to provide localised monitoring, alerting, routing, and switching of Telstra's leading services to the broadcast community, including the company's Internet Delivery Network, Global Media Network, and Special Events Network. Moreover, following the MediaCloud acquisition in June, TBS also has the advantage of leveraging the MediaCloud team's considerable experience in managing and monitoring Internet delivery networks.
 
The facility and service assurance will be managed by the team at Telstra Broadcast Services who are industry experts with decades of combined experience in ensuring the right blend of networks, technology, and services for global broadcasters, rights-holders, and sporting bodies.
 
The BOC is designed to provide access to Telstra's network of over 2500 global customer sites, venues, and remote production hubs, as well as connectivity into 19 major global media network providers, many of which are in the UK and Continental Europe. It also provides a secure cloud gateway solution with scalable service assurance for content delivery to off-network media buyers.
 
The new facility also provides access to Telstra's Pittsburgh BOC and Hong Kong BOC, which is conveniently located in Telstra's Stanley Teleport, where the company's media experts help ensure streamlined inter-connectivity between satellites, global subsea cable systems, and the terrestrial IP network.
 
Together with Telstra's Sydney BOC, the four centres have the capability to allow Telstra Broadcast Services to offer global coverage and 24/7 global service assurance for customers.

"Telstra Broadcast Services already manages over 400 satellite, media, and data services, as well as overseeing three million permanent channel hours and 20,000 ad hoc event bookings every year," commented Andreas Eriksson, Head of Telstra Broadcast Services. "By increasing our investment in London with this new facility, we are demonstrating our commitment to the European market and providing exactly the sort of low latency high-quality services both in and out of Europe that the industry, and the sports and live events sectors, in particular, are demanding."
