Erik Huggers at last week’s MIP 2008 Conference

This comes from the distant past of last week, but this interview with Erik Huggers, (the man who should be at the forefront of everything technology at the BBC, given his job title) is worth a look and was flagged up on the BBC’s Internet blog yesterday.

Huggers is the BBC’s director of future media and technology and he spoke at last week’s MIP 2008 conference.

In his speech he looked at:

“The challenges facing broadcasters as the pace of change accelerates, and how they must evolve to ensure a consistent experience across all platforms – without compromising quality.”

In the interview below he talks to journalist Kate Bukley.

    I like what he’s saying about platform standardisation but the BBC is guilty of taking a bespoke approach itself. If you want to ask people to standardise such things you should lead by example.
