IABM Teams Up With BBC Academy
GLOUCESTERSHIRE, ENGLAND— The IABM joined forces with the BBC Academy to show support for the UK’s upcoming transition to file-based program delivery.
The organizations recently hosted an exclusive preview event at IBM’s London office for its members and representatives from the broadcast industry. It was chaired by John Ive, IABM’s director of business development and technology.
“The UK is the first nation to announce the move towards file-based delivery of programs and the DPP’s support in helping that to happen has been invaluable,” said Ive. “In addition, the positive collaboration between the technology supply industry, the end users and the broadcasters and programs makers has been instrumental to its success.”
At the event, keynote presentations were delivered by Andy Quested, head of HD and UHD, BBC; Rowan de Pomerai, senior technical manager, ITV Studios; and Taig McNab, technical manager, 3sixytmedia. The presentations were followed by a series of practical demonstrations of the workflow of file-based delivery and quality control presented by independent specialists, as well as an interactive panel discussion.
The DPP is a not-for-profit taskforce led by the BBC, ITV and Channel 4, with representation from Sky, Channel 5, S4/C, UKTV and BT Sport.
The BBC Academy has planned additional events in the coming weeks, located in Salford, Glasgow, Belfast, Cardiff and London.
