MediaCityUK facilities firm Dock10 has agreed a three-year deal to provide BBC Sport with a remote editing service.
Dock10 said the extension of its network into Quay House had enabled it to install a dozen Avid Media Composer workstations with access to its Avid Isis shared storage, network connectivity infrastructure and its Avid Media Central offering.
Dock10’s Platform will also be available to support BBC Sport’s pop-up or overspill edit facilities at MediaCityUK or on location.
Dock10 will also provide technical support, workflow specialists, media and operational management as part of the service.
Dock10 chief executive Mark Senior said: “We’re delighted that our Platform services have been selected by BBC Sport to deliver seamless, file-based workflows and remote edit capabilities between BBC Sport’s HQ and dock10’s Studios and Post facility.
“This deal builds on our existing relationship where for the past five years we have been working together on iconic shows such as Match of the Day, Football Focus, Sport Personality of the Year and the FA Cup. It is also a product of our close working relationship with Avid in delivering new innovative solutions to market.”
