State Banquet, 20th October 2015


BCA are pleased to have been involved in successfully supplying HD coverage of the State Banquet held at Buckingham Palace on the 20th October 2015 to broadcasters Worldwide.

Using a mixture of Robotic PTZ heads, manned, and locked off cameras, 7 channels in total, we were able to provide coverage of the procession down the East Gallery and into the Ballroom, along with the speeches from HM The Queen and The President of The People’s Republic of China, Mr Xi Jinping.

Our live HD-SDi mixed feed was sent via fibre to a distribution rack for the broadcasters and further HD-SDi feeds were sent internally to other locations within the Palace for the media teams to view and report as the event took place.
