DPP and EBU enter into formal partnership to drive common standards and international interoperability

The Digital Production Partnership (DPP) today announced that it has entered into a formal partnership with the worlds leading alliance of public service media, the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), to drive the development of technical standards and the adoption of interoperability across the media industry.

The DPP and the EBU both deeply understand the value of collaboration in driving change, said DPP Managing Director, Mark Harrison. The two organisations have always worked closely, and our latest work together on a new interoperable mastering format for broadcast and online, as well as on cybersecurity, has emphasised the value of a more formal partnership.

Under the partnership agreement, the EBU and the DPP will collaborate and share knowledge in four key areas:

The definition and implementation of common technical standards and specifications to the benefit of the global media industry.

Defining common standards and specifications for programme delivery and exchange.

IP technology standards and specifications, file wrappers and metadata, and security.

Support for international interoperability through the adoption and implementation of open standards, specifications and guidelines.

"Interoperability and open standards are of fundamental importance to public service media," commented EBU Director of Technology & Innovation, Simon Fell. "We are confident that the partnership between EBU and DPP will help to drive the industry towards consensus around emerging standards, delivering value to all stakeholders."

Hans Hoffmann, Head of Media Production Technology at the EBU, added: The collaboration with the DPP will allow us to set the agenda for the development of specifications needed in a networked and software driven media production world.

To mark the start of their partnership, the EBU and DPP will be hosting an IMF meet-up on the EBU stand (10.F20) at IBC on Saturday, 16th September, 17:45-18:45. For the community of broadcasters, suppliers and manufacturers working on the Interoperable Master Format, the meet-up is an opportunity to network and exchange ideas.

Studio Technologies Revs Up Bristol Motor Speedway with Dante Intercom Capability Posted: 25/09/2017
Bristol Motor Speedway - a massive 2.5-square-mile complex that hosts up to 165,000 spectators at events such as NASCAR races, monster truck events and college football games - has cut days from its install and setup schedule with its recent upgrade to Dante Audio-over-Ethernet networking. Nashville-based professional audio equipment and services company Spectrum Sound, Inc., provides sound reinforcement for the facility, along with updating and maintaining its vast audio system. When Spectrum realized it needed to introduce a completely flexible comms system, while also taking advantage of the existing fiber-based IP infrastructure, it turned to Studio Technologies and its Model 371 Dante-enabled Intercom Beltpacks and Model 5422 Dante Intercom Audio Engine.
