The Digital Production Partnership (DPP) is heading to Manchester for the first time later this month to discuss the latest tapeless production techniques.

The Tapeless Shooting and Rushes Management seminar in Salford will offer advice on choosing a suitable HD camera, wrangling file-based rushes, and managing file-based media.

Aimed at programme-makers and production companies, the 21 July event will be chaired by Salford-based controller of production for BBC North Mark Harrison (pictured, right).

Other speakers include Mentorn and Sunset + Vine head of production technology Emma Riley and Raw Cut Television director Steve Warr.

“This forum will get to grips with one of the biggest issues for producers facing the move to tapeless production, which is: how can I get my digital rushes home safely and ready for use?,” said Harrison.
