With the new James Bond movie now hitting cinema screens across the UK, box office predictions have tipped the film to gross close to $1billion by the end of 2015. It is of no surprise, then, that the premiere for Spectre at the Royal Albert Hall was attended by a seemingly endless list of celebrities that even extended to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
All were present to witness the debut broadcast in London, leaving no room for error from a transmission perspective. Organisers were naturally keen for the event to be a resounding success and so every logistical factor was thoroughly considered beforehand – including cooling of the projector room. Should vital electronics or servers overheat on the night, consequences would likely include a complete inability to show the film.
