WRN Broadcast, the international broadcast services company, has today announced the investment of over £1million in its London-based media centre.
The investment, which will be completed by March 2013, includes a dedicated archive environment with an additional 2 petabytes worth of storage, a new master control room and a significant upgrade to the current MAM and mediator system.
WRN Broadcast regularly evaluates the companys technology and broadcast practices and the decision was made that certain key areas including the broadcast data centre and managed services were strengthened and future proofed. In addition, due to the on-going growth of the business, certain new technologies also warranted investment to increase the companys future technology capabilities and better support existing clients and the wider broadcast market.
Newly appointed CTO, Dave Travis, who oversaw the investment, commented, We've worked closely with our technology partners, including Evertz, Spectra Logic and Bright Media to continually innovate our broadcast services and keep our technology solutions first class. We continue to respond to our clients needs and will always invest in promising new areas of the business.
This level of investment will enable WRN Broadcast to continue to offer the most comprehensive and up-to-date broadcast solutions to the market, whilst also supporting the existing clients, which include Viacom International Media Networks, NHK World and Wananchi, the East African Broadcaster.
