SIS Live has increased its presence at MediaCityUK with new broadcast facilities including a master control room, production gallery, voiceover booths, edit suites and data control centres.

The media services company now occupies three floors of the Blue Tower within the MediaCityUK complex.

More than 120 staff from departments including IT, projects and development and engineering are accommodated at the same location.

The move reinforces SIS’s substantial investment in MediaCityUK. In July, it launched a broadcast teleport on the site, the largest of its kind in northern England.

SIS also has a five-year partnership with BT Media and Broadcast to provide an MPLS-based fibre network connecting SIS Live’s Milton Keynes HQ with MediaCityUK and BT Tower.

With Peel Media, SIS also manages MediaCityUK’s studio facilities, Dock10.
