Digital media specialist Kevin Shaw has joined BBC Studios and Post Production’s Digital Media Services team as Lead Technologist.
As a consultant, Kevin wasinvolved in the specification, design and build of the company’s new digital media services facility at Odyssey Business Park in South Ruislip.
His new full-time role sees him heading up technology development and workflow design as increasing numbers of content owners look to manage and maximise the value of their content.

He has been involved in many high-profile broadcast, commercials and feature film projects and in 2009 founded the International Colorist Academy (ICA), which teaches certified courses for colourists.
Kevin has served as director of training for Da Vinci systems and consulted for Digital Vision on its high-end file-based creative tools. He has also consulted for many other leading companies including Intel, Kodak, Technicolor, Qube, National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), CBS Broadcast and National Film Board of Canada.
"Kevin helped ensure the smooth transition of Digital Media Services from Television Centre to our fantastic new home, built around the latest technology, in South Ruislip," said Clive Hodge, Head of Digital Media Services at BBC Studios and Post Production.
"He brings to the role decades of film, tape and digital experience, adding to the in-depth technical broadcasting knowledge of our existing team, as we continue to deliver large-scale bespoke projects for content owners wanting to unlock the value of their content."
