Pic Of The Day: The DMI
FM&T will help to transform the way the BBC produces content through the Digital Media Initiative and by phasing out the need for tape.
--from BBC Press Office
It's the Digital Media Initiative and it will inform almost everything we're going to be covering on the BBC Internet Blog.
The BBC's Chief Information Officer, Keith Little, explains more in a recent piece in the FT:
Born out of a proof-of-concept project, "One Vision", at the Natural History Unit in Bristol, the aim is to digitise every aspect of the creative process, cutting the 70 or so individual processes which go into making a typical programme by 50 per cent and giving unprecedented access to the storehouse of content not only to staff but to the public.
If this wets your whistle, there's much more detail in a post called Your chance to inform the Digital Media Initiative at the Backstage Blog.
