Workflow

Planning



It’s all in the planning … we want to be part of your creative process and be able to help you realise your editorial and creative ambitions on schedule and within budget. Our Post Production Supervisor, with support from experienced Co-ordinators and highly skilled Technology Specialists, will work with you to create and develop your workflow and manage your personal post production process through to delivery and archive

Media Management

Technology is ever changing and technical specifications, camera codecs, and file formats are not immune to this. The management of your data from capture to ingest is crucial to the smooth running of your post production. Our team of Post Specialists and Media Operators can advise and assist with the design of an easy to manage process that will ensure the simple and painless delivery of your media. Once your rushes are in the system you can access them across the network using Avid Media Central UX allowing you to view, log and edit from a web browser.Our 3 Avid ISIS storage systems ensure your media is stored for safety and accessibility with the capacity you require for your production needs.

Delivery



The world is getting smaller and everything is being achieved faster as we move towards fully digital, global, internet-enabled content creation and distribution. Therefore when you complete your picture and audio finishing and are ready to deliver your finished content to your broadcaster and/ or distributor. We will be able to create, check and produce the appropriate DPP compliant files and any additional deliverables required

Transmission



Being part of BBC Scotland provides enormous flexibility to producers especially for fast turn around and live programmes requiring playout, live VT or additional transmission support.
