Pride overcomes Covid

Brighton Pride attracts around 450,000 festival goers to enjoy the city centre parade and weekend festival featuring world-class live acts. But not this year. Like the rest of the entertainment industry, Pride 2020 had to abide by government regulations, cancelling all public performances.

Stepping into the breach, the festival launched WE ARE FABULOSO! featuring 12 hours of live and exclusive entertainment filmed and streamed from a Brighton studio space. Over half a million viewers (according to the organisers) tuned into YouTube, Facebook, Twitch, Instagram and 13 terrestrial TV channels to watch acts such as Fat Boy Slim, Nile Rodgers, Jess Glynne and Years & Years.

Saudi Broadcasting Authority Selects Imagine Communications to Deliver Integrated Multichannel Networking and Playout Solution Posted: 04/06/2020
Saudi Broadcasting Authority Selects Imagine Communications to Deliver Integrated Multichannel Networking and Playout Solution

Saudi Broadcasting Authority (SBA), part of the Ministry of Media in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is replacing the playout technology for its main channels with an integrated solution from Imagine Communications. SBA, one of the most prestigious broadcasters in the Gulf region, is seeking to boost daily operational efficiency and eliminate human error for reliable and professional broadcasting.

To meet the requirements of SBA, Imagine Communications was able to propose a coherent end-to-end system covering network infrastructure, routing, monitoring, ingest, asset management and playout under ADC™ automation control, to replace the current system based on hardware from multiple vendors. The Imagine Communications proposal is largely based on software solutions running on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware, using industry-standard workstations from Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). It includes a Platinum™ IP3 router to switch SD, HD and 3G signals, with the capability of adding real-time IP switching to support SBA’s development plans. Additionally, the IP3 router provides integrated multiviewer functionality to ensure all monitoring is handled in a space-saving frame.
