DTG Statement on DCMS White Paper ‘A BBC for the future: a broadcaster of distinction’

12 May 2016

The DTG welcomes today’s White Paper from DCMS ‘A BBC for the future: a broadcaster of distinction’. We applaud the long term charter which offers stability for the industry and certainty for the consumer.

The DTG recommended a Technology Advisory Board in its submission. This would provide expert insight into the long-term technology issues facing the industry, and we welcome the reference to it in the White Paper. The DTG has pioneering industry collaboration in Ultra High Definition (UHD) with the UK UHD Forum, and we note the White Paper’s recognition of the role the BBC has played with partners, such as the DTG, in the development of such standards.

The White Paper encourages the BBC to improve collaboration with others in technology, and the DTG looks forward to supporting the Corporation as it does so.

Richard Lindsay-Davis, CEO of the DTG, said today: “The BBC helped create the DTG in 1995. And as a long term industry partner we look forward to constructively working with the Corporation as it continues to innovate in technology. This is clearly in the interest of the consumer and the digital television industry.”
