BBC’s London Television Centre turns to Drake Electronics

Drake Electronics, a broadcast intercom supplier, has secured a contract with the BBC to supply a site-wide FreeSpeak installation at its Television Centre in London.

Drake Electronics' FreeSpeak system

The BBC production staff throughout the London Television Centre will be able to operate freely around the complex while remaining in constant communication. The system will provide coverage not only in the production areas but also in green rooms, corridors, ‘Top Of The Pops’, its ‘Star Bar’, Grandstand, Jonathan Ross studios and even in the Blue Peter garden.

FreeSpeak will sit on a separate Drake system with a capacity of 1024 ports. The connection between the studio and FreeSpeak system will be via a combination of Drake ‘Hi-Que’ links and regular intelligent trunks circuits across both CAT5 and fiber connectivity.
