Remembrance day ceremony

Lloyds of London

Lloyds of London holds an annual Remembrance ceremony to commemorate the end of the first world war. There are different elements to this ceremony that take place within 30 minutes in duration including the participation from a choir, a military school, and a bagpipe. The mayor of the City of London presents and lays a poppy wreath in the offering.

The solution

We positioned 3 cameras in strategic locations to have aerial views of the ceremony. This also included a remote RF camera that would capture the ceremony from a higher perspective and will give the program an artistic edge. A specialized director was hired to direct the shots and create this artistic delivery. We also brought a specific piece of technology that was necessary to access Lloyds internal TV system. This unit is not a standard piece of equipment and it is not of common use.


The results

The setup and broadcast went as planned. The ceremony took place within working hours and the feed was sent via satellite to the TV networks and the Lloyds internal webpage. The feed was also shown throughout the Lloyds building on their internal TV system.
