IPTV first live operation from BBC’s New Broadcasting House
Celebro Media Networks joined the BBC last night in celebrating the first broadcast of live television output from its new Broadcasting House. BBC Russian’s 10-minute news programme was broadcast live from the new state-of-the-art studio space in the BBC’s new Central London home to Russia’s 24-hour IPTV channel Dozhd TV in Moscow – in the first live news transmission produced and broadcast as an IPTV operation.
A team from Celebro Media Networks developed and piloted the programme’s format, training editorial teams in the live gallery output and TV workflows. Our lead IPTV Consultant Wesley Dodd was in the gallery for the launch. He said: “All the team worked so hard to bring us to this pioneering moment. It felt like a milestone in the history of broadcasting as we produced and delivered the live news bulletin as an IPTV operation from the BBC’s new Broadcasting House for the first time.”
The BBC Russian Service news bulletins air in Russia from Monday to Friday at 16:00 and 20:00 Moscow time on our IPTV partner channel Dozhd TV - tvrain.ru, reaching a monthly online audience of over a half a million. They are also available on bbcrussian.com. You can watch the programme here: http://tvrain.ru/teleshow/bbc_na_dozhde/
