(Gloucestershire, UK--March 26, 2015) IABM
is establishing a dialogue with new entity DPP Ltd. From 1 April, the Digital Production Partnership, an informal collaboration between BBC, ITV and Channel 4, will become a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee known as DPP Ltd.
IABM is in discussion with DPP on the twin objectives of establishing a means to sustain the success of the DPP initiative, while balancing the commercial and organisational challenges of doing so.
Peter White, IABM CEO, commented, “The DPP has been an outstanding example of content creators, content distributors and technology providers working openly together to achieve a mutual goal. However, sustaining what has been achieved is not without cost. The IABM as a not for profit trade association is seeking to use its resources to help the DPP develop a model that will secure IABM members engagement going forward and ensure an ongoing commitment to their work.” For further information, please visit: www.theiabm.org
