dB delivers new generation project

dB Broadcast was selected as one of the strategic system integrators for Sky’s new production and broadcast facility on its Osterley Campus in West London.

This facility is a sustainable landmark broadcast facility that provides studios, technical, and operational space for people in Broadcast Operations, Sky Sports, and Broadcast Technology.

dB Broadcast was appointed to install, test and commission the core technical facilities within the Broadcast Centre component. This included the playout, compression and lines processing systems, enabling Sky to distribute their programmes to many platforms – including the traditional satellite feeds, new media streaming, mobile phone services and many more. dB Broadcast was also responsible for the installation of the Broadcast control system, IPTV system and the talkback facilities.

The Central Technical Area consists of a number of apparatus rooms with a capacity to hold 400 bays of technical equipment, and the playout area boasts over 35 operational desks.
