NEP Bow Tie is delighted to have been awarded the prestigious contract for the delivery of Vision, Sound and AV Operations and Maintenance for the UK Parliament.

The Contract brings together activities that were previously covered by two separate operations and maintenance contracts dealing respectively with sound/AV and vision services.  The introduction of this combined Contract represents a significant change for Parliament. The new arrangement is designed to reflect changing technology, whereby audio and vision activities and equipment are increasingly integrated.

The contract covers the following areas:

  • Video coverage of proceedings for broadcasting and webcasting
  • Provision of sound services for Members of both Houses during proceedings, and audio feeds for Hansard transcription and broadcasting/webcasting purposes
  • Audio-visual support services for presentations and conferencing
  • Maintenance and technical support of all associated equipment

Additionally the contract includes coverage and support for ad-hoc and special events, including some outside the Parliamentary Estate, such as traveling Committees.
