Over recent months, MAC has been busy working with three of the UK’s most recognised public broadcasters to help them define and implement their technology and services strategy for 2020 and beyond.
One of these projects involved the design of a new playout and MAM environment, to enable the broadcaster to take advantage of new technologies and working practices, in order to improve their on screen presence on both linear and online.
MAC was engaged to evaluate technology solutions, design new workflows and help select, through a rigorous RFP process, the right vendor partners and technologies to suit the broadcaster’s insource operating model.
The other two projects saw MAC assisting broadcasters with outsourcing requirements for broadcast operations. This involved strategy development, workflow design and the creation of a set of RFPs for service providers to bid against.
Jeremy Bancroft, Director of MAC stated: “These three projects with prestigious UK broadcasters have been some of the most interesting we have done to date. They have all involved an element of change management, as well as technology selection, in order to make the broadcasters more efficient and to improve their online operations.”
