Last month, United Broadcast Facilities (UBF) – the facilities management company based in Hilversum – moved a large number of its business units to a historic building in the city's Media Park: the completely rebuilt Muziekpaviljoen (Music Pavilion). The remaining businesses will follow shortly. From today, all businesses will be known under one single name: United.
Clients wanted visibility and unity from UBF and this was the main reason that UBF's management board decided to cluster all its activities at Media Park; previously businesses had been spread across different locations. For the first time in the company's history, all colleagues and all services will now work together at one site. By bringing everything literally under one roof, UBF expects to streamline its operations, making them even more efficient and customer-focused. This new, integrated UBF will be known as United (without the addition of 'Broadcast Facilities'). The name of the multi-camera unit, Cinevideogroup, will thus cease to exist. It is a brand new United, so a new logo and house style have also been designed.
The move is accompanied by extensive investment in the very latest IT technology. United is aiming towards splitting medium and content completely so that all material can be processed regardless of physical location. A brand new data centre is housed in the building, providing solutions for SD, HD and 3D processing, as well as storage and distribution, all with optimal quality, safety and security. Because all departments are now linked together at the new location, United can tailor its solutions to better meet the needs of its clients. Furthermore, colleagues from different departments who used to work at different locations now work under one roof and can contact each other directly, making lines of communication shorter and further improving the service.
United's new address:
Het Muziekpaviljoen (building No. 1 at Media Park)
1217 GP Hilversum.
All telephone numbers remain the same.
