BBC_NIThe BBC Northern Ireland team needed a innovative newsroom and production solution. Problems and shortcomings in the pre-existing production workflow were becoming increasingly apparent, unsustainable and expensive.  The lack of a centralised media archive led to missing tapes and data, delays in digitisation particularly for multi-camera shoots, problems with multiple tape formats, inconsistencies in logging, as well as media security issues.

BBC Northern Ireland elected to resolve its dilemma by transitioning to a file-based production environment with a centralised digital asset management system, based on Cinegy Workflow. Cinegy Desktop is currently installed on more than 100 desktop systems, with over 300 users, with this number continuing to expand.As a result of implementing Cinegy Workflow, BBC Northern Ireland accrued benefits in terms of cost reduction and cost avoidance, and in terms of less tangible creative benefits.


“The workflow has been streamlined in all sorts of ways that we didn’t anticipate”
