Live 8

At London's Live 8 concert in Hyde Park we installed and operated OB facilities for US rights-holder Premiere Radio Networks. Premiere broadcast 12 hours of live commentary and celebrity interviews to more than 100 affiliates from our backstage studios.

Our engineering team handled interviews with artists in our on-air studio, on the red carpet and in the VIP enclosure, all co-ordinated - minute by minute - with contributions from Premiere co-hosts at the New York and Philadelphia concerts.

We also supplied 22 Telos and Systembase ISDN codecs to the BBC, used to feed international sound from all six Live 8 concerts to a global audience in excess of 1 billion.
