Main Courtroom of the International Criminal Court
CAMBRIDGESHIRE, U.K. — dB Broadcast won a major contract to create the audiovisual broadcast system for the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
The Assembly of States Parties of the ICC decided that the ICC — a high-profile independent organization — should be provided with newly built permanent premises in The Hague, and these are nearing completion.
Broadcast quality is a key criterion for the ICC, as the courts handle very high profile cases, and the ICC is called upon to provide broadcast feeds to many of the world’s largest international broadcasters. dB has experience in remote-controlled camera systems where high-end broadcast quality video pictures are required. Audiovisual recording of court proceedings is also a key issue for the ICC.
dB has worked on a variety of large audiovisual and television projects for government, quasi-government and private industry, including Parliament buildings and the new BBC facility in central London, which involved relocation from the old BBC Television Centre to New Broadcasting House.
Tom Swan, sales and marketing director of dB Broadcast said, “We are delighted to have won this contract for the ICC. We have completed many such high profile projects to time and to budget for organizations such as the BBC and Sky, and look forward to supporting the ICC this year.”
