DPP updates file-based standard

The Digital Production Partnership (DPP) has unveiled a new version of its standard for file-based delivery covering loudness and UHD.

Version 4.0 of the DPP standard, which is based on the Advanced Media Workflow Association’s AS-11 file format, went live on the 15th October.

The new version includes audio compliance to EBU R128, guidance on use for UHD (4K) cameras and an addition for the carriage of multichannel audio metadata within a programme file.

The launch follows the technical standards body’s announcement last month that UK broadcasters will move to file-based delivery by October 1st 2014.

The organisation is led by ITV, the BBC and C4, with support from BSkyB, Channel Five, UKTV, BT Sport and S4C.

Kevin Burrows, DPP technical standards chair and controller of technical broadcast and distribution, C4, said: “We have prepared the ground for file-based delivery over the past 18 months and the standards are now starting to pay dividends for producers, manufacturers and broadcasters.”

“The latest version updates the standards enabling a longer shelf life which we believe will create a more efficient and effective way of working across the industry for the future.”

To download the full standards and the metadata application, go to version 4.0.
