The BBC seeks to engage a Supplier to work in partnership to ensure successful delivery of a Media Asset Management (MAM) and integral ingest system solution for TV and Online Production.
This procurement is a part of the delivery of technology to the new BBC Wales building in Central Square. Suppliers can assume that the physical installation of the hardware components of their systems will be done by a systems integrator for all project phases, but are asked to provide full details of these hardware components when asked to do so in the tender document.
Suppliers can assume that the IT hardware platforms will be provided by the BBC as free-issue items. The network hardware will be configured by the BBC, but Suppliers are expected to take part in relevant design activities led by the BBC to determine the final configuration. IT servers and non-Supplier provided software and licenses, such as OS/virtualisation system/commercially available database etc will be provided by the BBC. Details of these systems need to be itemised in the Pricing Schedule as free issue items so that the BBC understands what components it needs to provide. Where a Supplier provides their own stream ingest servers, storage and/or transcode systems, they are asked to option these items in the Pricing Schedule in order to baseline the total costs against Suppliers that do not provide any of these components. Likewise, where a Supplier does not provide their own stream ingest servers, storage and/or transcode systems, they are asked to provide itemised details of commercially available products such that the BBC can obtain costings. This specification covers the design, delivery (except for BBC provided equipment) and commissioning of the system. Final acceptance testing will be carried out by BBC staff.
