In 1995, four young IT enthusiasts at the Gdansk University of Technology, met thanks to the internet, and realised that they shared a vision that would quickly lead to establishing an information portal with the name: Wirtualna Polska (WP). Initially, it was available on the servers of the Centre of New Technologies, and later, in 1998, it was moved to www.wp.pl, which is still its current address. At first, WP operated as a catalogue of web sites but was later modified into a web portal offering a number of complex services such as informative services (news, sport), access to free email accounts, web hosting, search engine, a large collection of free and legal Polish mp3s, and an instant messaging service. WP quickly grew to be the sixth largest Polish web portal and is famous for being the pioneer of new internet services in Poland.

 

In 2016, WP obtained a broadcasting licence for a digital terrestrial channel “Telewizja WP” and were on the air on 2 December 2016, ably assisted by the software solutions developed by Provys. Readers of this magazine will appreciate that entry into the new territory of television broadcasting is no easy matter on account of totally different workflows, processes, time management issues, reliability, continuity, new technical skills, training of new staff (some of whom were just hired) and the associated stress that goes with all of these.
