24 June, 2016

As the Polls closed and the drama of the overnight count unfolded CT were engaged by the BBC to play a pivotal role in the delivery of the results to the world.

The 2016 EU referendum is arguably the most significant political decision to be taken in modern UK history. As the Polls closed and the drama of the overnight count unfolded Creative Technology were engaged by the BBC to play a pivotal role in the delivery of the results to the world, projection mapping real time information onto the façade of the BBC’s iconic Broadcasting House in central London.


CT’s engagement followed the success of a similar project for the 2015 General Election, with the CT team pleased to return to the site to build upon the experience gained a year ago.

Multiple Panasonic DZ21 projectors were installed in bedroom suites of the Langham and St George Hotels along with a control system built around CT’s VYV Photon servers also located in the Langham. The CT team installed multiple fibres between the hotels delivering signal and control data to each projector whilst their MediorNet system provided a fully integrated communications network between the Langham control and the BBC’s news team carrying Data, Vision, Audio and communications circuits over a single fibre back to broadcasting house.

CT Project Manager, Paul Seeger was pleased to return to Broadcasting House commenting “It’s always great to see historic and iconic buildings brought to life with Projection Mapping, doing this in central London with real time animated data and for such a monumental democratic process was a real treat for CT and all of the team involved, it certainly caught the world's attention."
