From Oct 25 to 28, 2013, Jürgen Loos, Sales Director at BFE Studio und Medien Systeme GmbH, participated in the 24. FIAT/IFTA (International Federation of Television Archives) World Conference in Dubai. The aim of this annual event is to provide the FIAT / IFTA members an international platform to share their knowledge and experience in the television archives.

With his presentation “It’s more than just technology” Jürgen Loos demonstrated to the participants a case study on the selection and implementation of a company-wide media asset management system at the important Arab broadcaster MBC Group, Dubai. Focus of the presentation was to inform of the approach to this project and to address the changing production processes at MBC and resulting impacts on the employees in various areas of the broadcast station.

BFE has supported the event as a Platinum Sponsor and, on this occasion, presented itself as a German system integrator.


The Fédération Internationale des Archives de Télévision/The International Federation of Television Archives (FIAT/IFTA) promotes the cooperation among television archives, multimedia and audiovisual archives and libraries, and all those engaged in the preservation and exploitation of moving image and recorded sound materials and associated documentation. Since its foundation in 1977, more than 250 members have joined the FIAT/IFTA. Some of FIAT/IFTA’s main objectives are to provide a forum for exchange of knowledge and experience between its members, to promote the study of any topic relevant to the development and use of audiovisual archives and to establish international standards on key issues regarding all aspects of audiovisual media archive management. To achieve this, FIAT/IFTA organizes local and regional meetings, as well as international conferences and seminars.
