About

I am a Broadcast Futures Masters degree student studying at Ravensbourne in North Greenwich.

This blog will be about my learning and research during this course.

Before becoming a full time student again, I worked at the BBC, in interactive TV and in the intranet team called ‘gateway’. The BBC is a very creative organisation that delivers great content to its viewers, listeners and web users. At the BBC I produced and helped deliver the Sports mutliscreen audio switcher, which is regally enabled for F1 and also part of digital switch over project for the BBC Red Button, as well as an award winning intranet.

Before joining the BBC I was an encoding manager for a small webstreaming company in Slough, and before that I was a transmission controller at Sky, helping them broadcast 48+ digital channels. I worked on world cup cricket, premiership football, sky box office concerts and much more, whilst I worked at Sky I experienced the analogue to digital switch over, and am interested to see how the Sky 3D evolves.

 

What I want my project to be about?
My idea is about how the London 2012 Olympic games can use latest broadcasting technologies to enhance the viewers experience of the games e.g. 3D TV, IPTV etc.
Areas that could be explored are, what does Olympic sports look like in 3D e.g. archery, diving, synchronised swimming or how can viewers at home with their IP set top box/TV interact with Olympic content? At the moment my project idea is quiet broad, but it is a subject that interests me, the idea will evolve and become more focused.

The way the viewer consumes content and interacts with TV is changing, and this needs to be explored in reference to the Olympic games.

So far, my project lead question is
“How can new technologies be exploited for London 2012 games to enhance the viewer’s  experience?”
