Having already provided the BBC with their internal communications system across their UK locations, the BBC had a new, unique business request they felt onemedia could provide the solution to.
With the recent move to the new, state of the art BBC Broadcasting House, BBC Tours has been setup to provide members of the public a unique opportunity to be shown around the multimedia broadcasting centre in the heart of London. With customers of the tours keen to get an inside look at the studios in action; it’s not ideal to be taking tour groups into the studios during live performances.
An idea was put forward to use some existing Digital Signage infrastructure of a large 100” plasma screen, with the placement of Webcams in each studio. The onemedia solution was then shaped around the BBC Tours needs, which brought streamed IPTV footage to the 100” Plasma screen in a public area that wouldn’t disturb the live performances.
