TVT extends BBC Worldwide ANZ contract

March 4, 2016

TVT, the independent media services and post-production house, 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, maximising 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.”
