DPP Launches a Producer’s Guide to File Delivery

As the UK broadcast industry moves towards full digital delivery, the DPP has launched A Producer’s Guide to File Delivery, a complete handbook that explains – from a production point of view – all that is involved and required in the new process.

The guide is published six months out from the 1st October, the date UK broadcasters will move to full digital delivery, and is a step-by-step guide to the process. The handbook includes guidance on the key stages of file delivery:
  • Completing the Programme – final Video and Audio
  • Creating MXF Files
  • QC Checks – Eyeball tests and Automated QC
  • PSE Checks
  • Adding DPP Metadata
  • Delivering DPP Standard Programme File
  • Late Changes before TX
