Third Light goes to the BAFTA TV Awards
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) supports, promotes and develops the art forms of the moving image - film, television and video games - by identifying and rewarding excellence, inspiring practitioners and benefiting the public.
Third Light is used by BAFTA throughout the year to store and distribute images from high-profile awards nights; this includes photos from the red carpet, acceptance speeches and many other celebrity pictures which you will see in newspapers and magazines when BAFTA events are held.
Janette Dalley, Photography Director, explains how Third Light IMS helps BAFTA deliver great content to the media:
On Sunday 18 May this year, Third Light joined the expert photo editors from BAFTA's media team at the Theatre Royal in London to experience first hand how gigabytes of images are tagged and uploaded rapidly, and to provide support for Third Light on the night.
