Reuters-TIMA is making live and ENG facilities available for hire in Moscow and Rio de Janeiro.

Following the launch of similar location services in New York, each site will be equipped with a mini MCR running a Ross 16x16 3G/ HD-SDI router that can be remotely accessed from TIMA in London. There will also be an edit suite and a full HD studio with a live rooftop camera position. Sony HDC-P1 cameras with Canon HJ14 lens will be available, along with a Ross Cambot robotic camera head. The facilities will be connected to TIMA HQ via a 15Mbps dedicated IP circuit.
