WRN Broadcast has been selected by Nautical Channel, the specialist nautical sports and lifestyle broadcaster, to provide fibre distribution to the US for three years, with supporting data centre and content management services. WRN Broadcast’s solution was created specifically to meet the channel’s expanding global distribution plans.
Adapting to Nautical Channel’s existing playout process, the technology team at WRN Broadcast was able to provide both the fibre circuit to the major US satellite operator and ensure secure hosting of the client’s playout equipment in WRN Broadcast’s new London-based Broadcast Data Centre, which launched in May 2012. With WRN Broadcast’s extensive fibre distribution network in place, the broadcaster also has the option of a presence at 60 Hudson, the major US distribution hub, which could prove instrumental as the channel’s development plans in the US move forward.
