Broadcast technology provider Ericsson has won a multi-year contract to deliver post-production and media management services for the BBC's in-house creative agency.
The company will provide the UK’s public broadcaster with a portfolio of end-to-end services including craft editing, desktop editing and design, sound and captioning, and storage, including browse functionality and archive facilities. These will be delivered by Ericsson's cloud-based media processing platform.
It will also provide these services from its post-production services facility in London, which will include a number of craft edit, audio and captioning suites with desktop facilities for use by the BBC.
“Our cloud-based storage and archive facilities will enable us to meet the BBC's content management and delivery needs both today and into the future,” said Thorsten Sauer, vice president and head of broadcast and media services at Ericsson. “This is a great win for Ericsson - especially given the competition from other reputable post-production companies during the bid process.”
