The 18-month contract with the Department of Parliamentary Services will provide the Australian Parliament with modern digital broadcast capabilities from September 2013.
BAE Systems Australia’s Director of Business Development and Land & Integrated Systems, Kim Scott said an easy-to-use system will be installed using advanced technology that enables High Definition TV and multi-view services.
“Parliament House is an internationally renowned building and it’s a privilege for us to be delivering a world-class digital broadcast system for a national icon,” said Mr Scott.
“DVB-T and Internet TV technology will be used for viewing live and recorded footage from analogue, digital and high definition cameras. The system will also distribute content from 64 television and 38 FM radio channels to around 2,000 screens throughout the building,” he said.
“This is an exciting project for the Company and follows our excellent work over the past four years to replace and support the Parliament House CCTV management system.”
