Red Bee provide RTL with IP-based MCR services

August 28, 2019

Red Bee Media will be delivering business critical video services to major Dutch broadcaster RTL through the company’s all IP Global MCR Platform. With the latest software-based solutions for video networks, routing, control and monitoring, all of RTL’s facilities will be connected to the Red Bee Media MCR in Hilversum, with access to a global video network. After an initial transfer of services during July, all MCR assets will be migrated from RTL’s infrastructure, to be managed through Red Bee Media’s end-to-end video services offering.

All live signal acquisition, video routing, processing, monitoring, reporting and distribution required by RTL as one of the largest commercial broadcasters in the region, will be outsourced to Red Bee Media.

“It is with full confidence in their experience and innovative mindset that we are outsourcing our MCR operations to Red Bee Media. They have proven to be the best equipped service provider to maintain the seamless operation of our MCR activities and the innovative partner to support in modernising our ways of working. We are looking forward to transferring into a future proof IP-based service that will provide us the flexibility and high quality we require,” said Giovanni Piccirilli, CTO RTL Netherlands.

“Over 40 years of specific experience and knowledge of MCR services has resulted in our leading market position today. We will now be able to roll out end-to-end IP workflows on customer premises using Red Bee Media’s leading industry multitenant IP platform technology”, added David Travis, Chief Services Portfolio Officer, Red Bee Media.
