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.

DPA Captures Sound for Netflix Original Film Posted: 21/10/2021
DPA Captures Sound for Netflix Original Film: Oxyg and egrave;ne

When it came time to record the Netflix original French-language film, Oxygène (Oxygen in English), the audio team had quite the challenge in front of them. The premise of the scientific horror film focuses on a scientist, played by French Actress Melanie Laurent, who has lost her memory, awakens, trapped in a medical pod and must find her way out before the oxygen levels diminish. Given the setting, the pod is used for 90 percent of the film and, with its tight quarters, Production Sound Mixer Ken Yasumoto and Boom Operator Josselin Panchout knew they needed a reliable and unobtrusive microphone solution, which they found in DPA Microphones.
