At the end of November, Bloomberg’s new London broadcast facility went live right on schedule.
The technical and organisational challenges of building this facility have been vast. Part of an integrated global workflow it lays the foundations to blur the boundaries between private and public infrastructure.
At the outset, key pieces of technology weren’t ready. 2059 was WIP, 2022 offerings limited. No architectural patterns existed because we were the first. That was just the video network. Pioneering work was undertaken elsewhere; storage, transmission, ingest, edit and the control network to name a few.
This facility wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication, tenacity and immense efforts of a great many individuals and organisations around the world.
Media is the place to be in tech.
It will be visionary businesses like Bloomberg who drive us forward.
