Case Study: Imagine Comms’ Platinum Router Key to BBC Studioworks’ Television Centre Revamp
BBC Studioworks Ltd is a commercial subsidiary of the BBC, providing world-class studios and post production services to all the major broadcasters and independent production companies. Following a comprehensive renovation project, Studioworks in September 2017 re-opened three studios, as well as post production facilities, at the iconic Television Centre, located in London’s White City.
Following an 18-month evaluation period, in which Studioworks technologists kicked the tires of a number of solutions, the company selected Imagine Communications to supply the facility’s core signal routing and management infrastructure. The design of the new Studioworks facility will utilize two Platinum™ IP3 28RU router frames. One will be dedicated to Studio TC1, which will be equipped to provide both HD and UHD production capabilities. The second IP3 will handle signaling for the other two studios, TC2 and TC3, at the refurbished facility. Both routers support a mixture of copper and fibre connectivity and have interface modules to link to the facility-wide MADI audio infrastructure.
