The Greater London Authority has appointed event technology supplier Etherlive and Easynet Global Services to provide communication solutions to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic media centre.
The two companies will ensure international media have reliable connectivity to report from media locations around London including One Great George Street.
“Together we are confident that we will be able to provide the infrastructure needed, as well as the all-important service wrap to deal with the inevitable last minute changes that will be required,” said Easynet chief technology officer Justin Fielder.
Easynet will use its multi-gigabit national network to support Etherlive in providing not only transport of real-time and recorded full-rate HD video content and Internet bandwidth, but also the underlying connectivity required at One Great George Street and four remote broadcast locations.
