Studios and Infrastructure
When planning any TV or radio production facility, deciding which ‘front of house’ equipment is to be deployed (cameras, microphones, VTRs/DDRs etc.) is probably the simplest part of the process. Less prominent, but equally as important is identifying the vast array of ancillary equipment that may be necessary to transform your front of house kit list into a fully integrated working system. On top of this there will invariably be a whole host of often obscure technical issues that need to be considered and properly addressed in order to ensure that the final solution fully meets or exceeds your expectations not only today, but as far into the future as possible.
In the same way as a building’s fitness for purpose and longevity is underpinned by its foundations, the capability of a production facility is defined by its infrastructure – the wiring, signal routing, data storage and ‘digital glue’ equipment that ties everything together, ensuring correct, efficient and safe operation as well as compliance with established broadcast standards.
Choosing a company with the knowledge and experience to deal with all these complex issues is therefore clearly of paramount importance. CVP has a highly experienced in-house SI (Systems Integration) team that provides a completely bespoke service to its clients. We have a proven track record in the design, construction and maintenance of all types of production facility, from a simple fly-away PPU (portable production unit) to a sophisticated full HD broadcast television studio. Our skill set incorporates every required discipline, from acoustic engineering tofile based multi-channel ingest and playout systems.
Whether it’s a new build, an upgrade or the relocation of an existing facility, we will work closely with you to specify everything you need (or might need) for your project whilst simultaneously saving money whenever possible by eliminating unnecessary items that you don’t.
Our clients include major UK Broadcasters, Post-Production Facilities, Universities, Government & Corporate facilities, Colleges & Schools as well as Religious organisations. We have a demonstrable track-record in fulfilling contracts with values ranging from under £50,000 to over £2m. And because we’re also the UK’s largest supplier of Broadcast technology, dealing directly with equipment manufacturers, we are able to pass the benefit of our substantial buying power on to our clients.
Our SI team work hand in hand with our sales staff and product specialists, consulting with clients in order to gain an absolute understanding of their requirements before providing a ‘no obligation’ estimate of the likely technical and financial demands of the project..
Once commissioned, we produce detailed schematic diagrams, technical specifications, a full scope of works, financial quotations and detailed delivery timescale forecasts. At every stage in the project delivery process our team is in regular contact with the client, working closely with them to ensure total satisfaction.
CVP is the safe pair of hands that can be trusted to deliver any project on time, on specification and on budget. Call us on 020 8380 7426 for further information
