Production Technology Survey, 2014 Back to Reports & survey Listing

The Cloud
It seems the move to the cloud is gaining traction, with programme makers increasingly drawn by the idea of remotely storing, editing and exporting content (see chdart below). Some 26% of respondents said they are or expect to use cloud based asset management or editing in the next 12 months, significantly up from 2% last year.

However, the majority, 43%, still aren’t or don’t think they will be using it in the next 12 months, citing low broadband speeds as holding back its take off.

Forscene and Avid Media Composer Cloud are the platforms most cited by survey respondents who are using cloud based technologies. Others are using Pronology, Aframe, Rapta and Fred.

DPP deadline

Two thirds of TV producers say they are ready to deliver digital compliant files to broadcasters by October, as agreed by the Digital Production Partnership (DPP). Worryingly, though, over one third say they are not ready for the deadline - or thought the changes weren’t applicable to them. “Never heard of it,” said several execs.
