The America’s Cup (AC36) may not feature any teams from the Americas (New Zealand squares off with Italy beginning this weekend) but it will feature plenty of broadcasters and long-distance transmission connectivity given its location in Auckland, NZ. Steven Dargham, head of Major Events at Telstra Broadcast Services, discussed the company’s efforts around the world feed distribution and more with SVG editorial director Ken Kerschbaumer.
Telstra Broadcast Services (TBS) celebrates five years of managed media and broadcast services, innovation and industry firsts.
Since its acquisition by Telstra in 2015, TBS has gone from strength to strength and seen great success in the broadcast industry. It has experienced exponential growth over the last five years supported by a large global company while still successfully maintaining a small business culture. Operating as a subsidiary, TBS has been equipped with a unique and agile business model more akin to a start-up than a major global player on the broadcast stage which sees the company promoting knowledge sharing and autonomous operation for its employees and value creation for its customers while excelling in the fast-paced broadcast industry.
