A new headquarters in London’s Vauxhall will allow Open Broadcast Systems to be closer to its customers in Central London and the rest of Europe. Based in a purpose-built video conferencing teleport, the new HQ provides space for corporate expansion as well as providing a showcase for software video transport over IP in an actual broadcast environment.
The HQ has nine racks of datacentre space available, along with a steerable C-band dish and two Ku dishes. Diverse fibre paths are also available, allowing Open Broadcast Systems to offer a wide range of services such as broadcast colocation and other video transport services, allowing R&D improvements to be tested and deployed in the real-world within minutes.
Kieran Kunhya, managing director of Open Broadcast Systems, said, “This is a leap forward for the company and will serve as a launchpad for a new suite of products and services. Customers can see software video transport in a real environment and continue to play an active role in the creation of new products in the Open Source ethos.”
