Globelynx, the fixed camera network company, has selected Colt to provide news feed distribution over Ethernet between London and The Hague, using Nevion technology.
The collaboration will enable key business and financial analysts and commentators to give regular live television interviews from their own premises.
Colt’s next-generation Carrier Ethernet network will be used to provide scalable longer distance video contribution links with MPEG encoding and IP mapping.
It will terminate at Nevion’s ‘IP mapped’ MPEG 2 compression and decompression equipment.
Globelynx chief executive David FitzGerald, said: “Because of this [combination] we can now satisfy the growing demand from potential clients in the UK and across continental Europe for our in-house broadcast camera facility.”
The network connects directly to the Globelynx master control and switch in central London.
The Globelynx network is used by all UK news broadcasters and carries 400 live TV interviews each month.
