Our Programme Management team are currently providing project management professional services to BT's Media & Broadcast (M&B) business unit.
This is the TV organisation of BT’s Technology Services - the part of the TV organisation you never see, but the one working quietly in the background delivering IT project management, media and broadcast projects worldwide to the industry's biggest players, including Sky, BBC, ITV, BT TV, Viacom, Star Sports, ESPN, Arqiva, the English & Scottish Premier Football League and many others.
One of our current engagements is managing the evolution of BT's Global Media Network (GMN) which is the digital backbone, purpose-built to meet the needs of the media and broadcast companies.
It currently serves over 310m viewers watching 3714 broadcasts to 152 countries every day delivering 8.3TB per second.
The GMN enables fast, reliable and secure live TV and media file transfer, with points of presence in key locations around the World.
We have also been engaged to manage the implementation of new outside broadcast facilities on behalf of the Scottish Premier League in 12 of their stadiums as well as the Murrayfield and Hampden Park National Stadiums.
These new facilities will enable BT customers to deliver content directly from the venue with diverse fibre connectivity directly back to BT Tower for broadcast as well as for World wide distribution over the GMN.
We have successfully completed a number of projects for Sony over the past few years including the technical fit-out for Sky Studio's Harlequin One building in London, the relocation of broadcast facilities for MBC Dubai, a new deployment of news & sports acquisition as well as play out facilities for the Swiss National State Broadcaster SRG SSR in it's 4 National facilities (Zurich, Geneva, Lugano & Chur).
Some of the team have recently completed assignments having been deployed in Doha, Qatar where we provided Programme Management services to the Sony Professional Service Business Unit as part of the Senior Leadership Team for Project & Programme Delivery.
This engagement was to manage the implementation of the Central Transmission, Programme Material Delivery as well as the Global Media Management Systems for the Middle East's broadcaster Al Jazeera.
