The European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition is a multi-professional organisation focussed on the health of children, and their 2019 ESPGHAN meeting on 6th June 2019 was one of the largest events in its sector. It focusses on new and upcoming scientific research in this field and a major part of this year’s conference was a live surgery workshop transmitted by SNG Uplink Vehicle from two theatres within the world-renowned International Academy for Paediatric Endoscopy Training at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
Links Broadcast SNG Satellite Uplink Trucks returned to the Principality Stadium, one of the most impressive icons of modern Wales, but this time, for a change, it was not for a rugby match.
2019 marks the 30th Anniversary of a very famous and very popular ‘boy’ band and, to celebrate this significant milestone, the band have embarked on a massive UK arena and stadium tour performing many of their much-loved hits. Did they play a million love songs? Did they relight the fire? They certainly let it shine down on Cardiff!!
Links Broadcast are very proud to be back again at Alexandra Palace providing a satellite uplink for a World Premiere from one half of a famous brother band in an EXCLUSIVE LIVE PERFORMANCE beamed via satellite into cinemas across the UK & Ireland.
This is billed as the musical comeback of the decade and we will be there to provide SNG Services via our outside broadcast truck.
Continuing our long involvement with the live to cinema distribution of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s live events, our satellite uplink SNG truck, R19 SNG, could recently be spotted at the birthplace of Shakespeare, in picturesque Stratford Upon Avon.
The live broadcast of the fabulous Taming of the Shrew, directed by Justin Audibert, was transmitted directly to cinemas across the UK on the 5th June 2019 giving the public the opportunity to watch this first-class performance closer to home.
On 5th & 6th June 2019 the world’s leaders, royalty and other dignitaries, gathered in Portsmouth and Normandy France to recognise the 75th anniversary of the D-day landings.
Ceremonies were held in both Portsmouth and in Normandy to remember the incredible sacrifices on that day, and to give thanks to those still alive to tell the tale. In recognition of the momentous events of that day 75 years ago, three hundred veterans travelled from Portsmouth across the English Channel, and other veterans even parachuted in to Normandy, and this all formed part of a huge international moment of remembrance and reflection.
The new-look Bennetts British Superbike Championship features not one but TWO visits to Donington Park in 2019, including this late May Bank Holiday weekend triple-header on the National circuit and Links Broadcast SNG Services will be there again for all the adrenaline fuelled action.
S800 SNG is just one of our outside broadcast SNG satellite uplink trucks providing SNG services.
S800 SNG will be providing diverse paths and communication to various countries for the British Superbikes live coverage.
Links Broadcast’s SNG Satellite Service was on hand at The Copper Box Arena (Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park) which hosted the world’s most prestigious skateboarding competition for the second year running, as The Street League Skateboarding World Tour stopped off in London!
Some of the world’s greatest skaters have gone head to head to show off their dazzling tricks and skills in what is fast becoming one of the versatile arenas in the county and we was on hand to capture all the action via our SNG satellite service.
If you can’t get to the Royal Opera House in London then don’t worry, the Royal Opera House can come to you!
Links Broadcast are very proud to have been part of the production and delivery of this year’s BP Big Screens Events on behalf of The Royal Opera House, delivering their content to screens around the UK.
For the fourth year in a row Links Broadcast worked with the Royal Opera House on their screenings of three hugely prestigious productions which were beamed live across the UK on to large outdoor screens. The production of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake was also simulcast to multiple cinemas around the UK as well as to the BP Big Screens audiences. Each of the three evening performances were blessed with glorious weather, and the eagerly awaiting opera and ballet fans enjoyed a wonderful experience in venues that ranged from the iconic to the idyllic.
We here at Links Broadcast were all very excited to be asked by our client Arqiva to supply our outside broadcast trucks to Fox News, Mediaset and HBO, in addition a KA flyaway dish for Prolink TV. A four camera event with crews for an Australian breakfast news programme was also deployed along with our production truck.
As with any event the pre-planning was meticulous but for the event of the year it was even more so than usual!
Following an exchange of a few hundred emails, many internal meetings and various conference calls across the globe later, we were ready to roll.
London Fashion Week is a highlight of the international fashion calendar, and Links Broadcast are very pleased to have been involved in LFW2017 with the production and distribution of one of the most spectacular shows of the week on behalf of Tommy Hilfiger.
