Reality Check to open first UK office3 February 2014
Broadcast technology developer and solutions provider, Reality Check Systems (RCS), will launch its first satellite office. Located in West London, the new facility will serve as an extension of the company’s Burbank operations and act as a central hub for business development, project management and technology innovation across Europe and the Middle East. Mike Ward, European MD and producer David Peacock will oversee new business development and ongoing projects in the region.
Reality Check Systems’ UK office will soon be equipped with the same customised hardware, software and graphics technology capabilities as its Burbank facility. Ward and Peacock will head efforts to extend the company’s offering; realtime graphics and broadcast production tools, to an expanded pool of networks, federations and sports leagues across EMEA.
“We’ve worked with networks and professional sports leagues across Europe for more than 10 years, so we’re thrilled to have an office space in London, where we can work, meet with local clients and show our technology to potential new business prospects from the area,” said Ward. “This space will allow us to better service our clients in the region, continue sharing our technology with the world and also attract new talent to our team.”
Ward will oversee the UK office, spearheading new business development and client relations. Peacock will use longstanding relationships in the sport production community to help further business development in EMEA and act as a client and partner liaison.
