Harpenden UK, 29 August 2019 — Boxer Systems, a leading UK solution provider for the media and creative industries, has formally joined the DPP. The DPP is the media industry’s business network with members from more than 400 companies spanning every aspect of broadcast production, from major, established companies to fledgling start-ups.
Boxer Systems CTO Marc Risby said, “Through our partners, we have been involved with the DPP since its inception, but this formally marks our direct involvement. The DPP provides an environment in which companies from the whole global supply chain can collaboratively address issues common to all, and create new opportunities, which mirrors our role as a comprehensive technology and system solution provider.”
DPP Managing Director Mark Harrison added, “The DPP continues to grow in size, strength, and scope. The ongoing development and establishment of recommended technical and metadata practices would not be possible without cross-industry cooperation on our technical projects. Boxer System’s expertise adds to this pool of knowledge, and we’re delighted to have them on board.”
The DPP was initially established by three major UK broadcasters, BBC, ITV and Channel 4, with representatives from each still comprising its Board.
