DPP Live Production Exchange (LPX) Hackathon

DPP Live Production Exchange (LPX) is a collaborative initiative led by the DPP in partnership with members Reuters, Arqiva and Warner Bros Discovery. LPX provides an open metadata and API framework for automating live production workflows.

The hackathon on Monday 4th March, 2024 provides a unique opportunity for news agencies, broadcasters, content platforms and technology vendors to explore the potential of LPX by designing innovative solutions that utilise the framework. We are also looking for constructive feedback to help us improve the draft LPX specifications for publication.

Participants in the hackathon will be working together in teams. Teams can be formed by individuals from one company or made up of representatives from different organisations. If you are interested in taking part but are not yet part of a team, we are happy to assist.

If you would like to take part in the DPP LPX Hackathon, please send an email to david@thedpp.com for more information.
