Happy New Year from TipTop Media! We hope you had a great 2014 and have an even better 2015.

In our first blog post of the year we thought we’d share some of our highlights of 2014 and let you know what we’re looking forward to in 2015. 

Digitising!

Our first digitising job arrived in autumn 2014, all 200 boxes of it. We use Kodak Capture Pro for our digitising work, which allows us to scan all types of documents and hand them back to our customers on a hard drive, usb stick or CD.  If you’re interested in the benefits of digitising your documents, check out our blog post where we showcase the three main reasons why you should. We’re definitely looking forward to more of this work in 2015! 

IBC 2014

We didn’t actually manage to make this convention in September, but it turned out not to matter as they live streamed all of their sessions. Our top three sessions to watch (and still available to view) were: Amazon: Media Success Stories from the Cloud; New Money, Old Content: Creating Value from Archive and Envivio: The Value of Cloud based video solutions for multi-screen. We’re hoping to make the 2015 convention, but if not, it’s good to know we can still keep up to date with developments in the Broadcasting world. 

The BFI London Film Festival and the launch of the BFI Player

The BFI London Film Festival is always a highlight of the Broadcasting world’s calendar due to the sheer variety of films screened over twelve days. This year, the total number of films hit 248 and were as eclectic as always, ranging from a film entirely in sign language (The Tribe, (Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy, Ukraine), to a Turner biography (Mr Turner (Mike Leigh, UK) ) and a trip down memory lane with the Moomins (Moomins on the Riviera, Xavier Picard, Finland-France). Combine that with the launch of the BFI Player service and it’s been an amazing few months for film lovers. 

Working on our Social skills 🙂

We’ve really enjoyed engaging via social media in the latter half of 2014 and we hope that we’ve been imparting some interesting information to you! You can find us on twitter, facebook, google+ and linkedin along with our monthly blog.

We’re looking forward to presenting even more intriging articles in 2015 so watch this space…
