The BBC Research & Development presented their EOSC-hub use case during the EOSC-hub week in Prague. Luka Murn, R&D Engineer at BBC R&D, introduced the use case related to his projects, Video Coding and JOLT.
The Video Coding team within BBC R&D focuses on multiple aspects of video technology, with a goal of supporting the delivery of high quality content to all BBC audiences. In addition to this work, the video coding team is also looking into more advanced solutions to ensure that BBC is future-proof in terms of delivering content to audiences.
This work needs a lot of computing resources and this is why the BBC Video Coding team found support from the Polish Poznan Supercomputing and Network Center (PSNC), to access the needed infrastructure available via EOSC-hub and be part of the EOSC Digital Innovation hub.
Luka says about the collaboration: “The use of large-scale processing resources have the capabilities to transform how BBC obtains, produces and delivers content in challenging scenarios. A move away from expensive bespoke broadcast specific facilities and hardware to more commoditised scalable-cloud based resources will enable BBC to more efficiently manage its content compared to what has traditionally been achievable.”
The EOSC DIH is the place to go for SMEs and large businesses to engage with the European Open Science Cloud and get access to technical services and research data.
We are pleased and excited for a fruitful collaboration with the BBC team.
