Beeb chooses Real IQ

Using Real’s platform, BBC Technology will provide its clients, content producers and rights holders with hosting, streaming and e-commerce services. Real System IQ will enable the BBC to deliver media to large live and on-demand audiences. BBC Technology currently broadcasts over 30 live programs and more than 100,000 on-demand audio and video clips. 'The BBC has been partnering with Real Networks and utilising Real System to deliver digital media content to the Web for over five years,' said Philip Langsdale, chief executive of BBC technology. 'BBC technology can now extend that deep experience to ensure a whole class of quality delivery for content producers and rights holders across Europe for the first time.''European content producers and rights holders can now turn to a world-renowned, trusted broadcasting company to host their European content [and] achieve a great end user experience,' said Rob Glaser, chairman and CEO, Real Networks. BBC Technology Ltd. began trading in March as a wholly BBC-owned commercial subsidiary in order to generate commercial revenue, while continuing to serve all the technological needs of the BBC's public service operations.
