GCX & BMC UK Gear Up for Royal Wedding Broadcast
The broadcast from The Home Park, Windsor to the studios of ABC, BBC and CBC, is being facilitated through the integration of GCX’s privately-owned Global Network with BMC’s resilient Media Quality Network across the City of London, tailored to meet the high-quality connectivity standards of sports, news and special broadcast events. GCX’s end-to-end network solution will provide fast, dedicated and reliable connectivity, enabling BMC to deliver live video contributions into ABC and CBC’s coverage of the Royal Wedding Ceremony, as well as active monitoring of the transmission over GCX’s Global Network, ensuring consistent broadcast quality for global audiences.
“High-performance, low-latency communications infrastructure is mission-critical to the media and broadcasting sector,” said Mark Russell, Managing Director, GCX International. “We are delighted to partner with BMC UK again to provide high-quality connectivity, enabling live broadcasts to global viewers who can share and celebrate this special occasion.”
GCX’s privately-owned Global Network is distinguished by its unmatched geographic coverage and ability to provide both subsea and terrestrial connectivity across the globe, linking up established markets in Europe and North America to the emerging markets in the Middle East and Asia, and optimized for the high-performance delivery and distribution of content, typically required by media and broadcasting companies.
This announcement follows the successful broadcast of two FIFA World Cup qualifying matches from Spain and Slovenia to ITV London studios in 2015 and 2016.
