The Need for Speed - Venus Launch 10 Gigabit Fibre Leased Lines for the Media and Production Industry
London’s post production houses work on a wide range of projects from Hollywood block busters to popular television dramas. In the immortal words of Tom Cruise’s Maverick they now “feel the need for Speed”
“London is the heart of the world’s post-production industry and the Media Production Show is London’s most prestigious event for this industry. Our 10 gigabit per second service fibre leased lines will transform the industry’s working environment making it much more efficient to transfer and share projects online at thousands of megabits per second. Our local field survey team aim to reduce installations times by a month and we recognise that reliability is key and the industry needs peace of mind. It’s important to have local engineers that can respond rapidly and effectively to keep the network up and running in addition to an account management team that delivers the support the industry needs,” said Brian Iddon, Venus Business Communications Director.
Roundtable Films investment in 100 Megabit per second leased line connectivity & is delivering benefits in efficiency across a wide range of their projects including music videos and Channel Four’s latest drama Flowers. “At normal broadband speeds it would take a couple of hours to upload on top of the 90 mins to export, so people would not be able to see the film until 3-4 hours later. Uploads now take minutes. There isn’t an option of having normal broadband. Uploading quickly has become essential,” confirms Ben Coulson, Director at Roundtable Film.
Venus’ 10 gigabits per second service is the fastest fibre based leased line service in London. Recognising the growing trend in the industry to move to higher resolution 4K format for content, it can transfer these data rich files rapidly and efficiently to clients. The Venus network is proving popular with over 1,000 customers in London enjoying high speed connectivity transferring half a terabyte of data a day!
Venus Business Communications will be exhibiting on Stand 203 at The Media Production Show in Islington’s Business Design Centre 9th-10th June 2016
