Business communications and IT managed services company Colt is providing HD connectivity for AP Global Media Services’ new studios in central London.

Colt has linked the new studios with AP’s Camden office offering uncompressed bi-directional SD/HD circuits with integrated data network connectivity.

Nevion’s Ventura Series video to fibre mapping transport products are being used over Colt’st fibre network for this set-up.

The new studio and production space on Haymarket is available for broadcasters and production companies for news coverage including the general election.

It includes five HD-capable studios overlooking some of London’s most recognisable landmarks.

Alla Salehian, director of AP Global Media Services said: “The UK elections mark the launch of these new and unique live shot studios. We will be relying on Colt’s expertise in fibre connectivity to ensure uninterrupted coverage from our studios on Haymarket to our HQ in Camden.”
