WRN creates media village

Not to be outdone by Media City UK in Salford Quays, international broadcaster WRN has launched a new Vauxhall-based media village.

It aims to bring together a host of like-minded broadcast companies, creating a culture for increased creativity plus studio and office space.

Having recently acquired the three storey building adjacent to its Vauxhall Media Centre base, WRN Broadcast also announced that inspirational entertainment broadcaster OHTV will be one of the first companies to take advantage of the media village offering, joining Jazz FM.

David Treadway, MD, WRN Broadcast, says: “The vision is for complimentary companies to work with each other, developing a creative community around the media hub in south London. The new media village offers clients flexible facilities, lower costs and easy access to central London. We’re currently talking to potential clients and hope to create a media hub that could eventually rival the likes of Soho or Shoreditch. Our message is simple: Come to Vauxhall.”

WRN Broadcast aims to attract further television and radio broadcasters, in addition to other creative and digital companies, which will be able to take advantage of the facility’s range of services. These include playout, content management and file delivery, satellite and fibre distribution, VOD, IPTV and mobile solutions, data centre services and channel management.

Jazz FM became a tenant of WRN Broadcast in April 2009, leasing two studios and office space. This enables Jazz FM to be broadcast live from the WRN Broadcast building. WRN Broadcast also handled Jazz FM’s uplink and capacity on the Eurobird 1 satellite, provides the radio station with its bespoke EPG submission and management software and coordinated Jazz FM’s launch onto channel 729 on Freesat.
