deltatre secures nine-year deal with the BBC

20 February 2012

deltatre has secured a nine-year deal providing internal scheduling for the BBC. The sport media services company is to develop, build and host an event system allowing users across the corporation to view sports scheduling data, while limiting the manipulation of data to an identified set of users. Primarily the system will facilitate planning for the London 2012 Games with foresight to use it on future large-scale events. The tool will assist with the planning and operation of a large number of broadcast feeds and for the scheduling of the multitude of resources deployed in advance, throughout and following the London Games. The modular architecture will permit a smooth transition to extend the solution for wider use. During the London Games, the scheduling tool will receive and manage various feeds, including the broadcaster data feed, vision and audio circuits coming into the IBC, the host broadcaster multilateral feeds, as well allowing for the planning of the deployment of commentators to venues, transmission plans for the various broadcast and online outputs, output lines usage from the IBC, crew and equipment deployments and recording functionality at the IBC. “deltatre has developed bespoke business applications for some of the biggest global sports federations over many years, so we have the knowhow to help large corporations enhance internal productivity,” said Hugo Sharman, director of deltatre Media North. “With the complexity and magnitude of the Games, the importance of well organised, effective communication across departments has never been more important. deltatre are providing multiple technology services for the BBC prior to and during the London Games, so we are perfectly placed to help develop their delicate internal workflows.”
