BBC Sport is seeking a single provider for the provision of Archive Asset Management for its Sport Production Library. Archive is at the heart of everything BBC Sport does and the solution needs to support the broad range of content producers and expert librarian staff in a future where BBC Sport works with other broadcasters, content production companies, outside broadcast providers and other BBC departments both onsite in Salford and globally.
Sports broadcasting has always been innovative and that is what BBC Sport requires from the new archive. The goal is to improve the quality of output by utilising content across all platform operations.
Sport production teams must be able to concentrate on content and not have to struggle with navigation or technical aspects of the system. All users should be able to initiate searches quickly and easily with relevance of results easy to decipher. Usability is key and the interfaces and tools must feel simple and intuitive to users.
The solution shall deliver:
• An Asset Management Solution that offers intelligent management of content and a first class user experience. The system will offer flexible licensing and be compatible with BBC IT systems
• Data migration services for current video and audio assets and metadata in order to migrate existing IPDirector based media and metadata in parallel to the operational running of the existing archive
