Genesis Networks installs network at United Nations

Genesis Networks, a provider of next-generation global video
transmission services, has established an independent point of presence (POP)
in the United Nations’ Studio H broadcasting facility, located in the core of
the U.N.’s
New York City
headquarters. The Genesis installation provides news bureaus covering U.N.
events with a reliable and cost-effective means of delivering news feeds to
their global affiliates.

Genesis Networks connects seamlessly with the U.N.’s
state-of-the-art Studio H broadcasting facility enabling the transmission of
television and radio signals entering and leaving the U.N. building, as well as
the broadcast of its own productions. News organizations of every size from
around the globe maintain bureaus within the U.N. building. Organizations such
as the BBC, Reuters, and CNN have all established bureaus to enable them to
work directly with the Studio H U.N. media facilities. Now, however, with the
Genesis POP, other large and small news bureaus can utilize Genesis to transmit
their news feeds via direct fiber. Since the Genesis Networks POP is capable of
transmitting and receiving multiple video channels, in addition to servicing
each bureau’s data requirements, any news bureau can contract with Genesis to
transport a signal in or out of the U.N., either via the POP or through a
direct connection to Genesis’ global fiber network.

“To satisfy viewers’ appetites for up-to-the-minute
information transmitted directly from the source, news organizations are
demanding greater flexibility and expanded resources for delivering their
on-site broadcasts,” said Elio Parente, vice president, operations,
Genesis Networks. “This is especially true of regional broadcasters, who
are looking to expand their reach to broader audiences spanning geographical
boundaries. By establishing a point of presence inside the U.N., we can help
these broadcasters meet their objectives — and therefore position ourselves to
be a critical link in the global communications strategy for delivery of U.N. news
