BBC Spring Watch

Every year the BBC broadcast it’s three week long Spring Watch wildlife series.

To help the BBC meet the challenge of making more content available online and to meet it’s cost saving initiatives, BMCUK worked with BBCOB Comms and Pinnacle group to deliver an innovative IP based contribution solution.

We were able to provide very cost effective SD video contribution feeds from the RSPB site at Minsmere, via a terrestrial radio link (shared with Internet traffic) to a local PoP and then dedicated fibre network all the way to Broadcasting House where the four baseband video signals were decoded.  Using their own systems, the BBC then passed these signals on to the Interactive Team in Salford for production and streaming.
