BCE is beating a clear path to the future of broadcast with its fully IP-based broadcast facility in Luxembourg
Luxembourg-based system integrator and broadcast services company, Broadcast Center Europe (BCE), officially opened its new facility in RTL City on 20th September, 2017. The state-of-the-art broadcasting centre is home to 35 channels across its seven control rooms, with customers from across Europe and Asia.
“We have moved to our new premises and we have completed the integration of our new building,” said Laurent Seve, marketing manager, BCE. “We’ve developed a media workflow based over IP and we are the first company to do this. Everybody is talking about switching to IP but few have actually done it. When we moved to a new building there were no existing solutions so we had to partner with high quality retailers and work together with research companies to find solutions to create products to make strong broadcasting infrastructures.”
BCE is a European leader in media services, system integration and software development in the areas of television, radio, production and postproduction, telecommunication and IT.
With its extensive experience on the media market, our team provides high-quality services and will always find the solution that matches your project and budget.
With more than 200 highly qualified and motivated people, BCE serves about 400 clients in various sectors, such as TV channels, radio stations, film distributors, producers, advertising companies, telecommunications operators and public services.
In October 2017, Riedel Communications announced that BCE has adopted its Artist digital matrix intercom solution and MediorNet real-time network at the Luxembourg facility. With Artist delivering AES67-based communications and MediorNet providing the integrated signal-transport backbone, BCE’s new facility features all of the latest technology for production, postproduction, playout, and transmission services for broadcasters throughout Europe.
“After a thorough RFP process, we decided to partner with Riedel to provide communications for our new facility,” said Patrick Bernard, Head of Technical Services at Broadcasting Center Europe. “Riedel is well-known for its innovation, reliability, and outstanding support, and Artist was the ideal choice for one of the biggest IP intercom systems ever deployed in Benelux.”
Additionally, BCE is one of the first companies to adopt Bolero, Riedel’s
all-new wireless intercom system. The company has deployed almost 30 Bolero beltpacks for use in its studio and outside broadcast (OB) operations.
