About the presentation
The BBC has a history of developing and sharing new technologies, and the evolution towards digital content and distribution creates new opportunities to improve the cost effectiveness of the whole PSB industry through sharing and partnership. New technologies will facilitate the sharing of content across multiple platforms, and partnerships in the area of digital production, IPTV and the evolution of the BBC iPlayer. The success of the BBC iPlayer has highlighted some stresses latent in the business model of the internet industry. The continuing viability of financing the industry on access, rather than on content delivery, has been questioned. The mobile industry’s traditional model has been very different, and the arrival of mobile broadband is forcing some choices on both the fixed and mobile industry.
