New Web Based TV Programme Production Facility Launched

1 December 2005

‘Interactive Remote Studio’ now widely available

RPPtv, the dynamic multilingual Remote Programme Production platform that has been nominated for this year’s Royal Television Society Technology awards, has launched its patent pending production software technology to a wide range of business and consumer facing markets.

Clients everywhere, from classrooms and offices to war zones and their own home, can now edit and produce cost effective broadcast AV programmes across any web or wireless location using RPPtv’s virtual studio. Even footage from a mobile phone can be turned into broadcast standard programmes.

Developed under the Department of Trade and Industry Broadcast Testbed Programme and market tested under the European eContent Programme, the RPPtv technology enables remote editing and production using new material or the RPPnet motion picture and audio media archive. The range of applications is broad whether mobile or static. Users are allowed access with secure passwords from any online location.

The system is standards based, AAF compliant and includes MDE with metadata authoring, media asset management with an online custom intelligent search and edit engine.

“Organisations can be up and running in hours and it is simple to use”, says Will Buchanan, one of RPPtv’s founders. “Journalists or creatives can edit remotely their own films and upload archive content from servers creating programming from library resources. Teachers and students will be able to make programmes in the classroom and of course broadcasters are now able to produce programmes at their own desk at home, in the office or on location. This is production anywhere, with increased cost effectiveness. Global collaborative programme making is now possible.”

Any organisation wishing to get this technology up and running within hours should contact Will Buchanan at RPPtv on 0044 (0)1730 815707 or

The RTS Technology awards will be presented on December 8th. RPPtv have been nominated in the Technology in Content Creation, Capture or Restoration category.
