Arqiva helps BBC deliver new approach to natural history broadcasting
Arqiva provided the BBC with full HD Outside Broadcast production and SNG uplinking for the live elements of Lambing Live, with an Arqiva crewed HD OB truck and two HD SNG flyaways deployed to a remote Welsh farm. The signal turned around to the BBC using Arqiva satellite capacity and teleport services.
Barrie Woolston, Commercial Director at Arqiva Satellite & Media, said: “Lambing Live was a unique TV experience which further develops Arqiva’s regular provision of OB and SNG services for major BBC productions. Working very closely with the BBC team, Arqiva’s proven ability to provide full broadcast chain solutions in High Definition – combining on-location HD filming and uplinking with teleport turnaround and satellite capacity – has helped bring real life into TV viewers living rooms.”
