File Delivery Training Event – BBC

Over the coming 12 months, the main UK Broadcasters will be switching from video tape to file-based delivery of programmes in a revolution described as the biggest change in television since the introduction of colour.

File Delivery Made Real” is a series of training events organised by the BBC Academy to prepare the industry for these changes. The events will build on the forums that have been held by the DPP, and “File Delivery Made Real” will include a practical zone where the techniques for creating, reviewing and delivering the files will be demonstrated on state-of-the-art equipment. There will be interactive hands-on exercises to familiarise both production, post-production and technical staff with the skills required to successfully build DPP file delivery into their production workflows.

 

Learn about the switch to file-based delivery of TV programmes at free @TheBBCAcademy training events http://bit.ly/Academy_FDMR #filedelivery
