BBC R&D

End-to-End IP Broadcasting work stream

BBC R&D is looking at how general purpose computing and IP networks can change the broadcasting industry with projects such as IP Studio and our Object-Based Media Toolkit. We have also been exploring the world of cloud-based production with our Lightweight Live work - solving a fixed broadcast infrastructure problem with scalable, lightweight, live video production using our IP Studio approaches in the cloud.

Our cloud-fit production project is now building on these foundations, and is assessing what a media production system built 'cloud first' should look like.

We have contributed to industry standards and specifications, and have accrued a wealth of software which can be used to solve problems in this area, some of which we're publishing as open-source contributions to further aid adoption.
