Moving Image Wales (MIW)
MIW was a knowledge transfer project funded under the Academia for Business (A4B) scheme. The A4B Fund was managed by the Welsh Government’s Department for Economy and Transport and was financed by the Welsh Government and the European Union.
Moving Image Wales (MIW) existed to support the development of new IP project proposals from Welsh media companies (TV, film and new media) located in the Welsh Convergence area.
MIW provided access to facilities as well as staff and industry expertise, to assist in media proposal development and in R&D activities, such as the creation of Pilots/Tasters (for a future television, feature film, internet concept, cross-platform content, etc.). In addition, MIW helped forge new R&D networks and advised media companies on a range of activities and processes, such as new digital technologies, the cross-media exploitation of projects and on emerging business models that can target new revenue streams.
