The Digital Production Partnership is staging its first event in the North this afternoon when it holds a two hour session posing the question: The Digital Revolution: hype or delight? The event is being held in the private club, On the 7th at The Landing at Media City.

The theme of this afternoon’s session is ‘Behind the scenes of the Revolution Trilogy’ with speakers “exploring the journey travelled so far by our digital revolutionaries from tape to file-based delivery.”

The-Creative-RevolutionThe context setting today’s agenda relates to the DPP’s series of three ‘Revolution’ reports that set out to “examine the obstacles to change, how to make digital less painful and just what digital technology really means for creativity.”

Tickets – which are free – can be booked here.

The event runs from 3pm to 5pm.

The Digital Production Partnership is run by the UK’s public service broadcasters to help producers and broadcasters maximise the potential of digital production.

Funding is provided by ITV, BBC and Channel 4 with representation from Channel Five, Sky, S4/C, UKTV, BT Sport and the Independent sector on its working groups.
