The DPP has signed up more than 20 manufacturers to it new Compliance Programme.
The DPP is creating the Compliance Programme and subsequent guidelines to help the industry identify trusted products for DPP standards across the UK and to speed up the successful implementation of the digital delivery process by ensuring files are DPP AS-11 compliant.
The Partnership has signed a large number of companies so far, and is in the final stages of securing some key international manufacturers.
The manufacturers will provide details of completed tests, sample files produced, and evidence of the results obtained on file delivery or processing products that are in development or being marketed.
The Programme aims to establish a minimum quality threshold of tests that manufacturers’ products need to meet. Should products meet the criteria, the DPP – which protects the integrity of its standards through the DPP Trademark – is collaborating with the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA) to develop a certification scheme which would enable the use of the AMWA & DPP brands on manufacturers’ products and in marketing.
Kevin Burrows, DPP Technical Standards Lead and CTO Broadcast & Distribution Channel 4, said, “It is great to have had such a positive response to the programme from manufacturers. We are delighted that the DPP’s standards and guidelines are so valued that companies are choosing to work with us. Thanks to their engagement we have already made significant progress in establishing minimum compliance criteria, which we hope to publish soon.”
