At IBC, The Switch is discussing with visitors its August announcement that it has expanded its The Switch At-Home service with the launch of an additional at-home/remote production facility in Burbank, California.
The investment is designed to meet rising demand for live content, driven primarily by sports events. Broadcasters and rights holders can, the company says, now leverage The Switch’s combination of high-end production capabilities and network reach to capture, edit and package even more sports and live event content, delivering it to viewers anywhere in the world, on any device.
Eric Cooney, president and chief executive officer of The Switch, said: “We’ve established ourselves as a leader in the at-home/remote space and see real value in further investing in and expanding our offering. Our business model ensures that The Switch is able to economically provide access to cutting-edge technologies while maintaining unmatched levels of service, giving our customers the ability to do the same with less – or even more with the same.”
The Switch’s expanded Burbank facility is designed to provide a single platform for delivering multiple live productions, either simultaneously or as a standalone, from any location – the Burbank control room, the customer’s control centre, or remotely – at any time.
The Switch is exhibiting at IBC2019 on Stand 5.A73.
