Continued innovation and evolution

We’ve got some impressive success stories to share with you. Join our case study style panel sessions, where we’ll reveal how the next-generation networks we’ve delivered for Premier League Productions (PLP) and the BBC are enabling further innovation and greater cost efficiencies. Plus, find out how we’ve already been delivering other emerging formats such as HDR, Dolby Atmos and VR and AR for BT Sport.

We’ll also be showcasing the development work we’re doing to adopt new technologies, that will enable us to deliver visually lossless 4K picture quality. Plus demonstrating how our TVOB powered cabinets are remotely operated and monitored. Alongside the demonstrations, you’ll also be able to enjoy two live broadcasts of AVIVA Premiership rugby matches in 4K.

We’re specialists in taking content to where it needs to go and our advanced networks have delivered on this time and time again. Book a meeting with us and we can talk one on one and find out how we can help you.
