dock10 Innovation Day

dock10 is the UK’s largest TV studio facility. Based in MediaCityUK, Manchester, it provides studio facilities to the BBC, ITV and other major broadcasters. 2018 was the fourth year dock10 hosted its Innovation Day, which invites companies to exhibit pioneering and innovative technologies to an invited audience of senior broadcast creatives and technologists from around the country. The themes of the 2018 Innovation Day were Native 4K-HDR, Virtual Studio Solutions and Artificial Intelligence. NMR was contacted by the organisers, via the ReCAP project website, to demonstrate the results from the ReCAP project and Neil Anderson was also invited to participate in the panel discussion on AI and the future of TV production alongside executives from IBM, BBC R&D, and Avid.

We met with some existing customers (Liverpool FC and ADI) as well as many representatives from the BBC, University of Salford, and many more. We demo’ed the ReCAP user interface and for the sports customers we met we were also able to discuss and demo the sports data projects we are working at the moment.After the show, we were invited to enjoy the England v Belgium World Cup match on a big screen in the Match Of The Day studio.
