Deluxe Media Europe (DME) has spent almost £100,000 on compliance equipment in readiness for the Digital Production Partnership- led October deadline for the file-based delivery of programmes.

DME’s purchases include Minnetonka AudioTools server, Emotion Systems’ EFF Enterprise, Tektronix rasterisers and Tektronix Cerify licences.

Head of digital media Ian Beushaw (pictured) said: “As the gatekeepers for UK broadcasters’ material, we not only test for DPP compliance but also, in the event of failure, we can make the technical adjustments needed to bring the file into line with the DPP spec.”
