ITV soap Emmerdale is the first British television production to adopt The Digital Production Partnership’s (DPP) new Technical and Metadata Standards for file-based programme delivery.

“We now have AVCi100 throughout our entire end-to-end workflow, which makes us more efficient, speeds up delivery and improves technical quality," says Matt Cleary, head of Production, Emmerdale. "It’s great to see that Emmerdale’s fast approaching middle-age is not stopping it being at the forefront of new and emerging technology.”

Through the DPP, seven major broadcasters (BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Sky, Channel 5, S4C and UKTV) agreed the UK’s first common file format, structure and wrapper to enable TV programme delivery by digital file in guidelines that were launched in January this year.

Working closely with the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AWMA) in the US, the DPP has been the driving force behind the creation of the organisation’s ‘AVCi100 AS-11,’ a new international file format for HD Files.  The new DPP guidelines require files delivered to UK broadcasters to be compliant with a specified subset of this new, internationally recognised standard. 

During 2012 BBC and Channel 4 will also begin to take delivery of programmes on file on a selective basis.
