Martin Place Sydney Siege
15 - 16 December 2014
A day all Sydneysiders will remember forever. The day the Lindt Café in Martin Place is locked down and the 10 customers and 8 staff inside are kept hostage at gunpoint for up to 16 hours. Our team were called to broadcast outside the Lindt Café.
Breaking news such as the Sydney Siege requires our team to respond quickly and effectively. There is no time to prepare so all preparation for these types of events need to be pre-prepared. Reliable equipment needs to be at the ready, expert staff need to be able to rig the satellite dish and troubleshoot at speed.
On this occasion we deployed a SNG Vehicle capable of multiple transmission paths on behalf of Eurovision. We operated for over 24 hours straight providing live cross facilities to numerous networks across the globe keeping the world posted to what was happening and when.Back to all events
