NEP provided facilities for BBC Studios across five different events during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
Overseen by project manager Richard Lancaster, NEP supplied outside broadcast trucks including Venus, Sargasso, and Voyager, which delivered coverage of a number of events such as the BBC Platinum Jubilee Concert and Pageant.
NEP Connect provided camera crew and connectivity to BBC Studios Kids and Family for live inserts into CBBC Mash-Up and Blue Peter.
Creative Technology dealt with the technical delivery of the projections onto Buckingham Palace as well as the main stage LED screens for the celebrations. Custom graphics displayed across the screens were created by NorthHouse Creative, with camera imagery provided by NEP for the broadcast production. The LED screens were also used for the Trooping of the Colour on Thursday, Thanksgiving service at St. Paul’s and the Pageant.
Simon Moorhead, managing director, NEP UK Broadcast Services, said: “It is an honour for NEP and the entire team to be entrusted with the broadcast technical facilitation of such a momentous occasion by our partners at the BBC Studios, and we value very highly our relationship and partnership.”
“This was a truly joyous, uplifting, and patriotic service to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service. There’s always an incredible weight of responsibility in the delivery of any major host broadcast, but none more than the world’s celebration of her majesty’s historic reign!”.
