	propose deux projets


We are a television and video production company which has specialised in
developing new technology for entertainment and information.  We made the
first digital programmes in the UK, the first HDTV programmes for ITV, and
pioneered the widescreen format in sports and music and entertainment

 We produced the European HDTV coverage of the Lillehammer Winter Olympics
in partnership with NHK, and the World Ice-Skating Chapionship in 1995.
 We were the founding partner of CINENET, an ACTS project developopng
electronic cinema under the 4th Framework (with four French partners -
Alcatel Espace, CCETT, Thomson and VTHR) and are keen to collaborate on IST.
While continuing with our core business, we intend to carry our television
production experience into the new world of internet broad and narrow casting.

We have two projects under immediate development.  One is to develop a
"virtual" cameraman system for use in broadcast situations where real
operators intrude or block sightlines (such as theatres or sports events).
The second - "Storyboard" - is a software package to assist the visual
"authoring" of feature films and television series.   We would be happy to
consider further partners for these, and have always greatly enjoyed and
valued working with French colleagues.   In addition we would consider
joining other consortia where our expertise can make a real contribution.

Best Wishes for the New Year,
