The Digital Production Partnership (DPP) is an industry-funded non-profit partnership that advocates and promotes the many benefits associated with digital production for broadcast television in the UK. The partnership also leads the standardization of technical and metadata requirements within the UK broadcast industry aiming to simplify and optimize all stages of digital production distributed via multiple platforms. Established in 2009, the DPP is funded and led by the BBC, ITV and Channel 4.


The DPP provides guidance to broadcasters on many topics including HD and SD standards, audio loudness, and file delivery. The partnership provides a list of options that are suggested by the DPP to help producers and broadcasters maximize the potential of digital production. On its official website, the DPP lists the DPP-compliant options available to UK broadcasters for file based delivery, including the FileCatalyst suite of accelerated and managed file transfer solutions.
