Peter J Knight
 Hello and welcome to Peter J Knight.
Currently available for new projects and opportunities, especially within the broadcast, cinema and film sectors.

Interested in discussing new opportunities, especially part-time or casual.

I have extensive professional experience within the cinema exhibition sector and as an industry recognised technical ambassador for digital cinema development and training, I have an in-depth understanding of both the industry as a whole and the technology that drives it. Alongside this, I spent 14 years with the BBC where I progressed to successfully product manage the design and implementation of 20 software products and components. I also worked as a Business Analyst for Ericson Broadcast Media.

With over 15 years experience in the industry, I have been working with digital cinema technology since 2004 and during that time have built a reputation that has allowed me to sit on the BKSTS Cinema Technology Committee (CTC) and work with a number of high-profile organisations such as BARCO, BAFTA, Disney, NBC Universal, SSVC and the BFI.

I have been instrumental in writing and publishing the BKSTS CTC Digital Projection Handbook and devised the organisation’s Digital Projection Certification Scheme. Alongside this work, I helped to devise and present a very popular and successful training course run across the country by the BKSTS CTC on the importance of great cinema presentation. In addition to this, I make regular contributions to Cinema Technology Magazine and run the successful www.madcornishprojectionist.co.uk website that caters to a wide variety of industry professionals and enthusiasts.

Throughout my career, I have been required to build and maintain outstanding relations with a wide variety of people including third party clients, contractors and colleagues on all levels. Part of the original BBC team that developed and launched the groundbreaking iPlayer, I went on to lead a team of developers and testers, working closely with third party clients to integrate iPlayer data with a number of extremely high-profile platforms such as YouView, Virgin, Sky and BBC Worldwide.
