WRN Broadcast is working with TV Jamaica (TVJ) during the London Olympics.
The Vauxhall-based playout firm is providing studio facilities for live programme recording and the delivery of non-Olympic rights holder content to TVJ’s audience in Jamaica.
WRN Broadcast is also looking after the downlink and on-pass of TVJ programming from Jamaica to London-based OHTV.
It enables the broadcasters to conduct a content-sharing partnership over a three week period, which takes in the Games and special broadcasts to mark the 50 year of Jamaican Independence.
WRN Broadcast managing director David Treadway said: “This is a great example of how WRN Broadcast’s Media Village works best; by pooling broadcast and media talent and combining skills to achieve fantastic results.
“We’re thrilled we can host another nation during London’s festival of sport, and it’s testament to the entire team here at WRN Broadcast that the project was able to be set up and realised so quickly – especially considering the complexities of working during London’s summer games.”
