Corus Selects Siemens For Corus Quay
According to Corus, the move will be completed and will be live on air by the end of next year. The multi-million dollar project will bring more than 10 separate offices and more than 1,100 employees together into a technologically and architecturally significant broadcast and production facility on the shores of Lake Ontario.
The company has added that this new facility allows the company to maximize its production and broadcast content in ways never before realized. In developing this new facility, Siemens will draw upon its experience in developing broadcast technology systems for the BBC. The new facility will draw from Siemens' experience in delivering facility design and build projects for major broadcasters in Europe and the Asia Pacific region.
The company has also added that Siemens will be responsible for developing and implementing a detailed design of the broadcast system, resulting in more than 20 standard and high definition broadcast signals going live from Corus Quay.
The system will include such core broadcast technology as ingest, play out, master control, and scheduling systems. Overall, the Siemens broadcast architecture will improve internal workflows, speed content integration and allow the company to efficiently distribute content whenever and wherever there is consumer demand.
Scott Dyer, CTO of Corus Entertainment, said: “Siemens has already shown that it can complete a media integration of enormous size and complexity, to go live in a new, integrated media environment we needed a partner with the capability, experience and innovative thought leadership to help guide our integration and relocation efforts.
“We expect that Corus Quay will set a new standard for Corus, for Toronto and for broadcast providers throughout North America and we're very pleased that Siemens is the lead systems integrator for this effort” added Mr. Dyer.
