2018 Winner

IABM Broadcaster or Media Company of the Year Award - NEP Australia

NEP Australia

NEP Australia wins the 2018 Award for its continent-wide and intercontinental IP remote production, with two hubs – Sydney and Melbourne – connecting with 29 sporting venues utilizing over two thousand SMPTE ST 2110 links.

“The consumption model of broadcast is changing. People want everything anywhere, all the time. To keep pace with this trend and allow Fox Sports Australia and other stations to produce ever more high-quality content with their most talented people, NEP Australia broke away from the limitations of siloed operations. NEP’s new Andrews Hubs in Sydney and Melbourne—the most technically advanced facilities on this scale in the world—enable multiple concurrent outside broadcasts via IP,” said Christian Scheck of Lawo, who nominated NEP Australia.
