DPP guide for UK producers prepares them  for a world without videotape

The Digital Production Partnership (DPP) today launched an updated version of A Producers Guide to File Delivery. Enabled by DPP Member, Deluxe Entertainment Services Group Inc. (Deluxe), a world-leading video creation to distribution company, the guide is a handbook aimed at UK production companies and programme suppliers, providing guidance on the end-to-end file delivery process from file creation (AS-11) and metadata insertion through to QC and delivery.

From 1 October 2017 UK broadcasters are no longer accepting delivery on videotape. Its the natural next step three years after the DPP initiated its AS-11 file delivery specification, said DPP Managing Director Mark Harrison. The latest version of our guide helps producers deliver their programmes in a world without videotape. It also offers guidance on emerging specifications and formats that will impact them.

Until the 1 October deadline, some programmes were still supplied on tape when delivery was required very close to transmission. But now UK programme delivery will be fully tapeless even for last minute deliveries. A Producers Guide to File Delivery incorporates the DPPs recent guide, Delivering Close to TX Without Tape: What UK Producers Need to Know, to provide additional assistance to producers who can longer fall back to videotape.

The new version of A Producers Guide to File Delivery also provides guidance on important emerging technologies and processes such as Ultra High Definition (UHD).

"Deluxe has been working closely with the DPP from its inception and has contributed to a number of their initiatives over the years. The DPP has achieved the seemingly impossible; true standardisation in a world full of specifications, said Ian Beushaw, Head of Technical Architecture, Deluxe EMEA. This has made a significant difference to Deluxe, allowing us to deploy highly efficient broadcast process workflows and see real benefits within our business. This latest Producers Guide signals the end of tape deliveries and the inclusion of UHD, HDR and WCG represent a significant up-shift for the industry that we welcome."

A Producers Guide to File Delivery is available to download here. The DPPs next report will be Whos Winning The Cyber War? The state of security in the media industry.

Grupo Imagen Prepares for Major National Network Expansion with EditShare Posted: 18/01/2018

EditShare, a technology leader in intelligent shared storage and media management solutions, announced that Mexico-based media conglomerate Grupo Imagen is implementing EditShare XStream EFS 450 scale out production storage, XStream EFS 40NL parking storage, and Flow media asset management to support content automation and fast turn-around workflows. Grupo Imagen was recently awarded a nationwide broadcast television license that expands its current broadcast network to over 190 transmission sites with its multiplex signal across the Mexican national territory. The opportunity requires the broadcaster to build out a network of brick and mortar stations in some of the major cities across Mexico, and thus reinforce its Mexico City hub with an infrastructure that can support connected workflows. The installation of EditShare will aid in the production of the broadcasters telenovelas and news packages; providing a tiered storage environment for fast online production and parking storage with automation that moves media across post production systems and third-party storage platforms, optimizing collaboration and media sharing across workgroups.
