At the end of 2010 Prime Television completed a new visual studio installation at Radio 1. Prime was commissioned by BBC Radio 1 to build the first ever visualisation studio for Radio after our success live streaming Radio 1's ‘Access all areas’, and specials webcasts such as Scott Mills ‘live from his flat’ and Chris Moyles ‘Alternative World Cup’. Radio 1 decided they wanted to be able to deliver to their listeners the opportunity to see live streams from their studios as well as the rapid turnaround of on demand content.
Prime Television designed, delivered and installed a solution that combines vision mixing, fixed cameras and hotheads for live streaming as well as recording direct to non linear edit for rapid turnaround and ROT (Record of Time) for compliance. The installation at Radio 1 was specified in standard definition but Prime, looking to the future, made the solution fully scalable to high definition for special events and also for future upgrades to the streaming service.
