Financial services company, ING Wholesale Banking is going with live broadcasting facilities from its Amsterdam dealing-room floor.

A fixed-point camera from vendor Arqiva will be installed to enable ING’s network of researchers, analysts and economists to do ‘down the line’ TV interviews with broadcasters across Europe. It will also provide playout services to enable the distribution of interviews worldwide. The camera facility will be the first to operate on a dealing-room floor in the Netherlands and will extend ING’s network of cameras in London and Singapore.

The system will include a point-to-point circuit from ING in Amsterdam to Arqiva’s London facilities hub, which in turn connects to BT Tower for onward distribution to broadcasters.

David van Eeghen at ING Wholesale Banking said: “We work in a fast-paced and rapidly changing business and it’s important for us to be able to respond to developments in European stock markets and economies almost immediately. This fixed-point solution means that we can talk to broadcasters and audiences within minutes by removing the need to bring in outside broadcasting facilities.”
