Telstra opens London Broadcast Operations Centre

Telstra Broadcast Services (TBS) has announced the opening of its new UK Broadcast Operations Centre (BOC). 

Situated in Telstra’s London Hosting Centre in London Docklands, the BOC will host a Master Control Room, office space, and lab/workshop area. Telstra said that the BOC has been designed specifically for live video productions and will assist in managing and monitoring content to and from Telstra’s EMEA customers on the company’s global fibre, satellite, internet, and partner networks.

The BOC is also designed to provide localised monitoring, alerting, routing, and switching of Telstra’s services to the broadcasting industry. Telstra said that the BOC will leverage MediaCloud, following its acquisition of the company in June. 

Andreas Eriksson, Head of Telstra Broadcast Services, said: “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. 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.”
