NEP Group Opens Centralized Production Center in London; Features Three Production Control Rooms and More
NEP Group continues to embrace the creation of centralized production centers and it now has one in London, at 200 Gray’s Inn Road. Supported by NEP’s world-renowned engineering prowess and technical capabilities, the company says the new production center is designed to be flexible in every way with easily adaptable workspaces, quickly scalable resources, and virtual studio solutions. The goal is to adapt to the needs of almost any type of broadcast or streaming production on any given day.
“This facility was designed, implicitly, in a way that allows us to mould it to meet the needs of any production, even as they change day-to-day.” says Steve Jenkins, President, NEP UK & Ireland. “But perhaps more important is the capability and power of the infrastructure backing it up. The NEP Production Centre London is integrated into NEP’s global network of data centers and production facilities, which provides access to the full range and depth of our resources and media solutions around the world, real-time.”
The facility includes spaces that can be configured for control rooms, edit, reversioning, sub-cut, media management, vision control/shading, and production galleries. It includes three production control rooms, two sound control rooms , three multi-functional production spaces, and nine flexible control rooms. There is also a flexible green screen studio, capable of utilizing NEP’s virtual studio solutions, and a temporary equipment room suitable for housing any required equipment. The facility’s central location and diverse 100Gb connections, combined with NEP’s extensive connectivity capabilities, allows NEP to provide fully managed connectivity solutions.
Adds Jenkins: “We can also rapidly deploy new, innovative products and services as they launch. This flexibility, combined with the power of NEP’s infrastructure, greatly expands the creative possibilities available to our clients.”
Using fiber, BT Tower, or satellite, it can link to any location in the UK and a growing number of locations in Europe, North America, and around the globe. Additionally, as part of NEP’s AnyLive network, it is permanently connected to more than 250 event venues in the UK and Ireland.
NEP can also provide any of their in-house connectivity assets, including SNG’s, hybrid satellite/fibre vehicles, satellite flyaway systems, and more.
