RTÉ Transmission Network Limited (RTÉNL) is to move away from RTÉ’s Dublin campus in Donnybrook as part of a major shift for the organisation.
The company is to be rebranded and a new board of independent directors, presided over by an independent chairman, will be appointed.
Noel Curran, director-general of RTÉ, said: “The repositioning of RTÉ NL means that the company will be able to take full advantage of developments in broadcast services markets nationally and internationally. While RTÉ NL will remain a subsidiary of RTÉ, these changes will allow it to become a true leader in broadcast delivery technology.”
He added that the recent rollout of the DTT platform Saorview demonstrated RTÉ NL’s ability to deliver.
RTÉ NL was established as a separate company in 2003 and it operates a network of some 170 distribution and transmission sites across Ireland. It provides broadcast distribution and transmission services to the Irish television and radio channels for both the public and private sector.
