A new shopping centre development next to the site of next year’s Olympic Games is touting its rooftops as prime shooting locations for broadcasters.

Westfield Stratford City’s head of 2012 brand alliance, Mark Zimmer, said that the roofs of the shopping centre have unrestricted views of the stadium and across the Olympic Park. 

“We have been working with broadcasters - both rights holding and non-rights holding - to understand their requirements for the Games, and a number have confirmed their locations.”

Zimmer said there are now only two broadcast locations left at the shopping centre.

“Westfield Stratford City offers a high level of facilities to broadcasters operating from our mall, providing access to pre-provisioned OBS ready copper and fibre data infrastructure, site-wide WiFi coverage and augmented GSM/GPRS/3G signals to back office facilities,” he added.
