NEP Bow Tie is delighted to have been awarded the prestigious Broadcasting Services contract for the National Assembly for Wales.

The Assembly is committed to making its proceedings open and transparent to the people of Wales and beyond.

The contract covers the following areas:

  • To provide a web streaming service allows the general public to view live and archive content of Assembly proceedings, publicity and press-release videos
  • To manage the digital archive of broadcast quality footage, and maintain the Client’s previous tape archive
  • To maintain the Client’s broadcasting and associated audio-visual equipment across the Assembly estate (Senedd, Pierhead and Siambr Hywel)
  • To repair or replace the Client’s broadcasting and associated audio-visual equipment across the Assembly estate (Senedd, Pierhead and Siambr Hywel) in the event of failure
  • To evaluate and, where necessary, update and upgrade the Client’s broadcasting infrastructure, including design, procurement and replacement of the Client’s systems and equipment
  • To provide a strategic consultancy service to the Client on broadcasting and audio-visual matters
  • To provide footage on request by internal and external organisations in a variety of formats, and to manage the associated processes
