RTS London: 2020 Vision: A view from the DPP

Early in the last decade, a tsunami in Japan devastated the factory that supplied HDCAM-SR tapes - the format used to deliver most TV programmes. As people sought an alternative, the uptake of file-based production was accelerated. An informal organisation was formed that seized on this opportunity to hasten the move to end-to-end digital, by creating a new file-based delivery specification.

A few years later the DPP became a formal company, committed to bringing all parts of the media supply chain together to solve problems and create opportunities.

And now another kind of natural disaster has happened: the global pandemic. So what media industry changes might this event precipitate? And will the DPP once again find itself at the centre of whatever happens next?

Join us to reflect on the key milestones of the last decade, and the probable trends for the next.
