TVT contract with BBC Worldwide Australia and New Zealand extended
TVT, the independent media services and post-production house which helps broadcasters and content owners create, manage, deliver and discover content, today announces that it has extended its contract with BBC Worldwide ANZ to manage and co–ordinate all of the broadcaster’s media assets for playout in Australia and New Zealand. This will allow the business to continue its delivery of high quality programming across channel brands BBC First, UKTV, BBC Knowledge and CBeebies with increased agility and efficiency.
The two companies have been working together to drive greater efficiencies throughout the workflow, streamlining operations for ingest, compliance editing, quality control and delivery to play-out and asset archiving. TVT’s cloud-based ContentSelect platform, which will roll-out further functionality over the coming months, is designed to give the company continued confidence that its content will be delivered to playout with the correct specifications and in a timely way. The broadcaster will also be afforded a greater degree of control over its assets with real-time updates of its content along the workflow chain.
Ian Brotherston, CEO of TVT, commented: “The reliability and agile capability of our ContentSelect platform coupled together with TVT’s media preparation services enables BBC Worldwide ANZ to direct its energy into the core area of its business; providing compelling programming for the enjoyment of its viewers. Our software has been built to relieve the strain of an environment where content is abundant, maximizing efficiencies and giving users total peace of mind that programming will be distributed without issue. We’re delighted to continue this work in Australia and New Zealand.”
Fiona Lang, Chief Operating Officer, BBC Worldwide ANZ, said: “With the large amount of content being delivered for our channels in Australia and New Zealand it’s critical for us to streamline our workflows in order to optimize our performance and services. We have been working with TVT to custom-fit our business requirements, allowing us to track materials at every stage of the workflow and act faster to identify any potential delays.”
