SIS SET FOR SALFORD MEDIA CITY

Date: 25/08/2010
mediacity With over 850 staff, SIS is the foremost supplier of television programming and data services to the UK and Ireland betting industry. It is also one of Europe's largest outside broadcast and satellite news gathering companies, providing thousands of hours of news, sports and entertainment coverage each year.  SIS will join BBC North and the University of Salford as key occupiers of the 36-acre media community.
 
In order to achieve its future growth plans, SIS will expand its operation by taking on new and additional space in the MediaCityUK development, alongside further development of its facilities at Milton Keynes.
 
The plan will involve relocating the company's production and engineering facilities from its offices in Corsham Street, London N1, a site that SIS has occupied since it was formed in 1986 when the UK satellite TV industry was still in its infancy.  SIS will take a minimum of 25,000 sq ft of space within one of the studio towers at MediaCityUK and expects to have in excess of 100 staff working in Salford.
 
MediaCityUK aims to become the largest purpose-built media and creative hub in Europe over the next ten years. The BBC, whose search for a new northern base was the genesis for the project, is set to move nearly 2,500 staff to MediaCity in 2011, including BBC Breakfast and five departments currently based in London (Radio 5 Live, Children's, Sport, Learning and Future Media and Technology).  In addition, the University of Salford will open a new higher education centre at MediaCityUK next year, housing 1,700 students and staff.    
Commenting on the move, David Holdgate, Chief Executive of SIS, said: "The MediaCityUK development at Salford Quays represents a fantastic opportunity for SIS and our staff to be based in what will become the television centre of the UK. As well as co-locating with some key clients, including the BBC, we'll have the advantage of purpose built premises."
 
Bryan Gray, Chairman of Peel Media, developers and owners of MediaCityUK, added: "We are delighted that SIS has taken the strategic decision to relocate its London operation to MediaCityUK.  The company has a first class reputation within the broadcasting industry, and the experience and expertise of SIS staff will be a key component in what MediaCityUK has to offer.  We look forward to working closely together."

Vitec Production Solutions at the BSC Expo
Making its official debut at the BSC Expo will be the all-new dual-battery bracket, which enables users to power a Gemini panel with two industry-standard 14.4V broadcast camera batteries mounted directly to the yoke or light stand. With its extremely lightweight and on-board, ballast-free power supply, Gemini has always been easy to transport and rig at on-location shoots. Now it's even more practical in situations where portable power is preferred over mains power, including a broad range of ENG and ENP applications. Unlike competing LED panels, which can only generate 50 percent of their maximum output when battery-powered, Gemini can operate at up to 100 percent intensity running from mains and battery power alike.
