Red Bee Media launches its second Red Lab in Hilversum, Netherlands

Following the opening of the first “Red Lab” in London in February 2019, Red Bee Media has launched its second Red Lab facility in Hilversum, the Netherlands. The space will focus on product development, testing and demonstrations of IP and software-based solutions for video acquisition, compression, contribution and distribution services.

On occasion of this inauguration, Red Bee Media carried out a successful test of IP contribution. The company was able to deliver uncompressed video (1080p HLG HDR)over a redundant long-haul connection (2x35km) from the Amsterdam Arena into the MCR test platform in Red Lab Hilversum with a 100% stable IP connection.

“Red Lab Hilversum gives us a great opportunity to develop and test our IP enabled capabilities, increasing the value we bring to our customers in live video services and remote production. We are committed to putting multitenant platform innovation at the heart of what we do as an agile managed services provider in the broadcasting and media industry”, said Kris Langbridge, Head of Distribution Services, Red Bee Media.

“With the combination of Red Lab London and Red Lab Hilversum, we will now be able to demonstrate end-to-end IP workflows between multiple countries and demonstrate how Red Bee Media is leading the industry in multitenant IP platform technology”, added David Travis, Chief Services Portfolio Officer, Red Bee Media.

Red Be Media has announced its willingness to launch a third Red Lab in Stockholm during the year.
