Sunday, February 01, 2009
Genesis Networks will be providing SNG Broadcast Services, a U.K.-based satellite uplink and broadcasting production company, global connectivity for customers of their live transmission services from London. Via the SNG service, Genesis Networks’ fiber-satellite infrastructure enables international broadcasters to transmit live news feeds from well-known London landmarks to their newsrooms anywhere in the world.
SNG Broadcast Services is offering live broadcasting capabilities from numerous iconic locations around London, including the U.K. Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, and Leicester Square. In addition, SNG offers live mobile camera capabilities via a COFDM wireless link, which enables signals to be delivered from any major location from within central London.
Each location is connected to a central hub from which the video and audio signals are handed off to the Genesis Networks’ point of presence in London for delivery to media hubs throughout the world. Through the Genesis service, broadcasters will have connectivity to SNG’s fixed-earth station services, which provide uplink, downlink, turnaround, and playout/record services. Also, broadcasters with on-location satellite uplink trucks will be able to access mobile uplink signals via Genesis from the SNG hub.
Genesis Networks provides broadcasters, cable networks, production companies, and corporations with high-quality customized global video transmission services that are reliable, flexible, and affordable. The Genesis Networks platform is a next-generation, IP-based fiber and satellite video network with cutting-edge switching and compression technologies. With access to more than 170 locations worldwide and growing, many organizations can now take advantage of Genesis Networks services. The company’s network operations center in New York City maintains the health and standards of the global network while the Genesis Networks proprietary software system, IRIS, gives clients remote, real-time network monitoring, scheduling, and control capabilities.
