The BBC has ordered a Quantel Enterprise sQ system for its BBC North regional news production operation.

The Quantel system will also support production of Newsround, part of the broadcaster’s children’s programming when it moves to the MediaCityUK development at Salford Quays later this year.

The Enterprise sQ new production system, which will be integrated with the BBC’s Jupiter Asset Management system, is equipped with 570 hours of HD storage split across two segments to for greater resilience.
