With third generation mobile technology on the way, BBC technology will demonstrate a production facility for wireless content at NAB 2002, the world’s biggest television technology trade show held in Las Vegas.

The facility will allow producers to acquire content streams from a number of sources, edit and process the material and transmit it to a 3G handset.

"Our media experience has given BBC Technology the ability to offer innovative and cutting edge solutions in the fields of broadcast and new media technology,” said Philip Langsdale, chief executive of BBC Technology, who is giving a NAB keynote speech on 'Enterprise Convergence: How all companies are changing into media companies.'

“All broadcasters are facing the twin pressures of needing to cut costs while driving increased revenues as they reinvent themselves in a multi platform, multi media world,” he said.

“Our industry leading engineers and systems analysts can help them decide where and how to take advantage of technologies and move into new arenas that will enable them to continue to engage their audiences."

BBC Technology will also be providing demonstrations of interactive technology. Visitors will be shown how BBC interactive programmes such as Wimbledon and ‘Walking with Beasts' were made to work both technically and creatively, using demonstrations in a DVD format.
