BSkyB continues expansion

dB Broadcast has received a major studio order from BSkyB.

This includes extending the studio infrastructure to the OB wallbox designed for this purpose. In addition to the studio installation, dB Broadcast is also delivering the expanded Master Control and core infrastructure systems to enable the integration of these studios into the wider campus. dB’s design team will work with the customer to develop and produce the design requirements and build information, including the purchase of critical-path equipment. dB will also be responsible for the desks and other operational furniture and at its peak, the team will comprise of four engineers and 11 wiremen. "This is another fantastic opportunity for dB to work with Sky to deliver these next studios,” said dB Project Manager Mike Bryan. “We are really pleased to be more involved in the complete delivery from the design all the way through to commissioning." The Sky Studios building, initially comprising of five studios, opened on 30 June after dB Broadcast installed and commissioned the Broadcast Centre, comprising of MCR, playout and its core shared technical facilities – 400 bays and 37 operational desks.
