BBC Studios has worked with GlobalM’s cloud-based SRT distribution platform to stream Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.

Using the GlobalM SRT distribution network, BBC Studios delivered live feeds to its international rights holders, providing global audiences with 12 hours’ uninterrupted coverage of the event.

BBC Studios required a cloud-based media distribution workflow to deliver live feeds to its international rights holders with limited or non-existent satellite links. The Matrox Monarch EDGE encoder technologies provided BBC Studios with an easy-to-use solution to launch a same-day, cost-effective IP-based distribution workflow.

The workflow began with the Monarch EDGE multi-channel encoders encoding high-quality, low-latency international and domestic feeds to the GlobalM SRT streaming platform. The GlobalM orchestration network then distributed and transmitted the SRT-enabled feeds – including backup and redundant paths – to international rights holders across the globe, while the master control monitored all streams in real time with the GlobalM web dashboard. During the 12-hour broadcast, the GlobalM network did not drop a single packet, providing a seamless SRT distribution experience.

Paul Calleja, GlobalM’s chief technology officer and co-founder, said: “Matrox Monarch EDGE’s high-quality and low-latency encoding support on the GlobalM private IP backbone provided BBC Studios with complete stability and quality for each stream, ensuring international rights holders near and far with exceptional event coverage.”

Francesco Scartozzi, vice-president of sales and business development for the Broadcast and Media Group, Matrox Video, said: “Cloud-based contribution and primary distribution offers an affordable alternative and/or complementary workflow to satellite-based media transport. Matrox Video has been working closely with GlobalM, so that customers like the BBC can benefit from quick-to-deploy cloud-native networks that are a fraction of the cost of double-hop satellite delivery models – but with the same broadcast quality and customer-viewing experience.”
