BBC & Quantel work on tapeless post solution

BBC Post Production have announced that they have partnered with Quantel to introduce a digital server based solution that will be phased in to service BBC Post Production’s customers, including BBC Sport.
The partnership aims to develop a tailored digital server-based solution that will be suitable for modern digital widescreen production, maximise work efficiencies, allow better browse and media selection facilities and improve work flow solutions in fast turn-round activities.
BBC Post Production will begin with a combination of linear and non-linear editing and move towards a complete tapeless post production solution within three to five years. In the short term, there will be a reduction in tape-based working although archive capture will still be take place on tape for the immediate future. Ingest from incoming feeds, post production and server playout will all become part of a tapeless process.
The full project will involve a phased refurbishment of BBC Post Production’s facilities, beginning with replacing existing analogue systems with a digital server based post production system for BBC Sport. This will also be rolled out and introduced to service other BBC and commercial customers.
Paul Grice, BBC Post Production Director of Technology, said: “The postproduction market is currently seeing advances in server-based technology and this is going to continue to change the face of the post industry within the next three to five years. BBC Post Production are at the forefront of technology in the industry and we are keen to anticipate and drive innovation and changes in the marketplace”.
Nigel Turner, Quantel Marketing Director, added: “We are delighted to be working with BBC Post Production on developing this new solution. We believe this collaboration will push the boundaries in terms of new post production workflows”.
