Red Bee Media introduces Red Lab, a brand new facility in London
Red Lab is the latest initiative of Red Bee Media, media services company. This lab located in Red Bee Media’s hub in Broadcast Centre, West London, houses a private cloud platform for remote testing and a meeting and collaboration space for broadcast and network engineers, and solution architects. This won’t be the only Red Lab in the world: the company has just announced that will open two more facilities in Sweden and the Netherlands during 2019.
This R&D facility has been used to test the control of remote platforms during 2018, although it was inaugurated in early 2019. The demos that had been run showed that Red Bee Media was able to flow content between Media Management, Playout, Distribution and OTT platforms across 5 countries.
According to Alex Dubiez, Head of Playour Solutions, “We used to have engineers dedicated to each customer or project, but with the migration of all of our customers onto a shared software-based technology stack, we need to organize in a very different way. Red Lab, London allows our multi-disciplinary teams to experiment and collaborate so that we can proactively drive innovation across our services”.
