Today sees us begin the final day of this annual Hewlett Packard Enterprise event. Our engineering and media management support staff are on location in Madrid (with our very own HP equipment). This event covers not only a huge physical area but also hundreds of topics, some of which you may never have associated with HPE or its products. Over this three-day event guests have included Nile Rogers, Lewis Hamilton and Daft Punk. Alongside case studies, demos and the networking opportunities it is a big deal in the computing world.
Today sees the 21st and final race of the 2018 F1 season. We’re there with Formula One Management and Presteigne Broadcast Hire for Whisper Films - Channel 4 coverage. A combination of our cost effective remote engineering support, EVS and Adobe seamless workflows, secure and dedicated media management, has seen us involved with over 4 broadcasters over this Formula 1 season. At The Collectv, we pride ourselves on providing a flexible approach, ensuring we provide the best solution to each and every one of our clients, no matter what the budget and time constraints.
With Hamilton taking his 83rd pole position yesterday and Bottas, his Mercedes team mate alongside, are Mercedes going to run away into the sunset? Or will Vettel regain some honour for Ferrari and give the Scuderia some hope for the 2019 season.
It’s day 1 of the 2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National, Paris, France and we are there with NBC & CTV.
