NEP Singapore, part of the NEP Group worldwide network, today announced the opening of a new broadcast production facility in the northeast of Singapore, strengthening the company’s investment and presence in the region to meet the growing demand for connected broadcast production solutions in Southeast Asia and the Middle East. The new facility, which is connected to NEP’s global production ecosystem, is now serving broadcast clients, rights holders and other content creators with both onsite and remote production services, helping them bring their live sports and entertainment content to audiences regionally and worldwide.
The new facility features modern office space and a spacious engineering workshop inside an expanded warehouse stretching more than 4,500 square meters. The warehouse provides ample space for NEP Singapore’s deep collection of industry-leading fly-pack kits along with dedicated space for camera and audio equipment, ready to scale and service a full range of broadcast production needs.
NEP Singapore is part of NEP Group’s Asia-Pacific connectivity expansion utilizing 10GB circuits between NEP Australia, NEP Japan, NEP Singapore and NEP U.S., giving each region dedicated connectivity via NEP Connect’s Anylive® fiber network, providing more opportunities for clients by increasing the utilization of resources and solutions across NEP Group’s global production ecosystem. Once the second phase of the new facility is complete, NEP Singapore will offer a signature floor spanning 1,500 square meters custom-built to support remote and centralized productions.
