COP15 is already receiving extensive press and media coverage
To provide the COP15 TV/radio media infrastructure and management, the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs awarded the Host Broadcaster Contract to a three-way partnership group, consisting of TV 2|DANMARK, Danmon Systems Group and East Productions. The duties of the Host Broadcaster are to support live television and radio production and feeds during the UN Climate Change Conference 2009 including construction and maintenance of an International Broadcasting Centre (IBC) for journalists and media staff of the television and radio broadcasters. A media city with 160 workspaces for broadcasters has been built, each of which has the facilities needed to receive live video and audio from the two plenary rooms and from five press-conference rooms. Recordings of the proceedings, format conversion, a full TV-studio, many stand-up positions, wireless cameras, radio cabins, editing facilities and satellite uplinks/downlinks have been provided for booking as well as a rental shop offering equipment, service and support.
