"We have a seen a great response to our registration outreach, with representatives from organisations including BBC, BSkyB, Channel 4, BT, MUTV, RTE, Liverpool FC and Al Jazeera already registered to attend.

"Our new central launch stage feature will focus on demonstrations of the hottest new kit from the top manufacturers, while our seminar programmes will continue to offer both high level industry level debate and practical production skills.”

This year’s speaker line-up so far includes Susan Woodward OBE, director, The Sharp Project and creative media champion for the City of Manchester, who will be part of a panel on collaborative working in the digital age; John Maxwell Hobbs, head of technology, BBC Scotland, discussing the challenges of end-to-end digital workflows; and Tom Sherry, executive producer, Red Production Company, on how production companies are exploiting new technologies to reinvent workflows and enhance content.
