The company won a $12.8 million, base-year plus four option year contract with the Department of Housing and Urban Development to provide full video broadcast and production services, Webcasting and Webinars, broadcast engineering, and satellite uplink services for the HUD Broadcast Operations Center. The contracted efforts include a full range of video production services for training, outreach, and documentation purposes, as well as video broadcast services for press conferences and interviews.
The HUD contract win follows the recent $18.2 million, five-year contract award to provide audio and visual services to the U.S. Department of Labor.

At HUD Omnitec will provide Webcasts of live and on-demand video productions, Webinars for distance learning with audience response, as well as speeches, press conferences and public information. The HUD public affairs Web presence will be made more user-friendly site with easy access to hundreds of on-demand videos and enhanced video distribution quality and bandwidth.
Additionally, under the broadcast engineering efforts, OMNITEC will completely upgrade HUD’s broadcast facilities from analog to digital and will install high-definition television throughout. The facility includes two studios, two control rooms, two editing facilities, and lighting and video/audio systems for a large auditorium, as well as classroom spaces.
“These two awards are due in no small part to our record of superlative performance in providing Public Affairs outreach and media services to government cabinet-level organizations,” said Peter Carlson, OMNITEC vice president for Media Services. “We have a long-standing record of providing public affairs and media support services for the Department of the Treasury and broadcast engineering support and web content management systems development to the Department of Defense.
