Creative Technology provided the technical delivery of the beautiful Buckingham Palace projections and main stage LED screens for the celebrations.

The LED screens were also used for the Trooping of the Colour on Thursday, the Thanksgiving service at St. Paul’s on Friday and the pageant on Sunday.

A brilliant weekend was rounded off for the Jubilee pageant on Sunday afternoon. NEP provided the broadcast coverage from the show, as the pageant celebrated the many years of her Majesty’s reign.

Simon Moorhead, Managing Director, NEP UK Broadcast Services, says, “It is an honour for NEP and the entire team to be entrusted with the broadcast technical facilitation of such a momentous occasion by our partners at the BBC Studios, and we value very highly our relationship and partnership.”

“This was a truly joyous, uplifting, and patriotic service to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service. There’s always an incredible weight of responsibility in the delivery of any major host broadcast, but none more than the world’s celebration of Her Majesty’s historic reign!”.
