  • Cuescript

    Cuescript

    When choosing a prompting company what are the main factors in making your choice?

    CueScript are a teleprompting company with a fresh way of thinking; modern and progressive whilst upholding old-school values. Home to the first complete IP-based prompting solution, we've been leading the way since day one. 

    With design for purpose, ingenuity and quality at the forefront, we have developed a range of exciting products. Understanding the needs of the customer and listening to the end user are sometimes forgotten. CueScript invite free thinking, we want to push boundaries and we have the drive and ability to promptly react to ideas or requests. 

    IP is in our DNA

    Broadcasters and system integrators looking at all-SMPTE IP installations no longer have to rely on SDI-SMPTE gateway converters, thus allowing our CSMv2 prompter displays a seamless interconnection with 10GigaBit fibre IP switches. This allows both the prompt and talent monitor to be fed from a single 10GB fibre cable, when the talent monitor is an existing CueScript HD-SDI display. 

    For customers that want a complete IP flexibility but do not have a 10GB IP-based video switch, the CSMv2 also includes CueScript’s innovative IP connectivity, now referred to as CueTALK, which provides seamless operation through standard CAT5/6 IT infrastructure. 

    We provide broadcasters and prompter users with a flexible solution that encompasses conventional connectivity (Composite or HD-SDI video), as well as full IP connectivity, all in the one system, as standard; thereby supporting you for today and tomorrow, future proofing your purchase.

    Divine is a new concept in powered network audio monitors. Housed in a hardwearing fully sealed diecast enclosure, it is powered by Power over Ethernet (PoE) and boasts the very latest low-noise  high-output class D power amplifier.  Uniquely, a priority system is provided to allow one (or more) of the inputs to automatically duck another, useful for monitoring one source whilst listening to another when audio is present, such as sending show relay to theatre dressing rooms but having the stage manager’s call and building fire alarm take precedence when they’re active.

    For a small, high quality, network audio intercom, at a price significantly less than the market leaders, look at the Glensound Beatrice system.  This Dante®/AES67 system offers beltpacks, desktop and rack units, in 1 to 6 channel versions – even featuring a bright red phone!

  • Magic Video Box

    Magic Video Box

    Magic Video Box creates eye contact in films.

    As Flexible Films, we have been making films since 2002 for NGOs, charities, businesses and NHS England. Five years ago, we designed the Magic Video Box because we needed to film subjects looking directly into the camera lens. There wasn’t anything on the market that fitted our budget and needs so we decided to make our own. We have since filmed hundreds of great interviews and presentations and launched the Magic Video Box in October 2019.

    We have been supported by PEW Electricals, a client who was so impressed – they offered to help with manufacturing, distribution and marketing. The Magic Video Box has been used in Straight Talking, a SKY documentary shot in Namibia and featuring Ant Middleton and Liam Payne. It is also being used in Channel 5’s Police Code Zero: Officers Under Attack.

    As well as creating compelling footage where the audience feel they are being directly addressed, the Magic Video Box also enhances the filming experience. The box is beautiful in design resembling a 1920s film box and sits in front of the camera. Depending on the angle of the box, the Talent sees a reflection of either a scrolling script or the interviewer’s face. They quickly relax and this allows for open and intimate dialogue that can last for as along as needed. There’s something quite special about talking to someone through the box.

    Feedback has been very positive with people saying they have found the Magic Video Box ‘fun, simple and easy’ to be filmed by. The films as a result are engaging and impactful. We have found in particular with the work we do that the result really is magic.

    GTC- The Guild of Television Camera Professionals

    The GTC was formed in 1972 and now has almost 1,400 members worldwide, working in all aspects of television and the wider industry including corporate and online.

As a result, the GTC offers a channel for manufacturers to consult with working camerapeople when designing new equipment.

    Our aim is to preserve the status of those working professionally with cameras and to establish, uphold and advance standards and expertise within our industry. To this end the Guild runs workshops for its members, a lively forum to share knowledge and many other benefits including special rates on Public Liability Insurance.

  • Manor Marketing

    Manor Marketing

    Manor Marketing is a full-service marketing communications, social media, PR and events agency, specialising in digital and B2B promotions for the media entertainment industries.

    Now in its eighteenth year of business, working alongside in-house marketing or becoming the outsourced marketing department, Manor Marketing continues to excel at offering premier marketing and communications services through a dedicated, experienced and qualified team. Manor Marketing has won a number of industry awards over the years and has also been recognised by NAB as a Social Influencer for 2018 and 2019. Agency personnel are also regularly employed on an interim basis for marketing, events and sales roles.

    Flexibility has never been more important in broadcast, and marketing consultancy is no exception, so we tailor our approach and level of service to fit what’s actually required, and sometimes have to be brutally honest about what we see as necessary versus the in-house perception. That flexibility and insight has led us to assisting companies, our specialty being SMEs, through everything from new product launches to MBO and VC journeys. Although we built our reputation by working with broadcast manufacturers, facilities companies, and professional associations, we’ve recently diversified into AV and other media entertainment sectors. As we said, flexibility.

    But no matter who we consult for, everything we do has a commercial focus. We’re not just about getting print and online articles published. We tailor content to be pushed through multiple platforms, which obviously includes social media, home pages, sales collateral, etc. Our technical knowledge ensures that we can communicate messages from the very basic to the very complicated, depending on the intended audience. However, behind it all, the end goal is to ensure our clients are highly visible to decision makers and therefore, potential revenue generators.
