    AES Global

    About AES Global

    Led by Nicholas Ashley, AES Global serves the broadcast industry across UK and Europe and has formed strong partnerships with well-established and highly trusted brands, such as Argosy, ESE and Lund Halsey.

    The company’s primary focus is to help broadcast professionals with their upgrade paths. Whether that’s a complete new build, refurbishment or technology upgrade; from infrastructure and cabling solutions that form the backbone of new IP-based and 4K/UHD systems, to picosecond accurate master clocks, time code solutions, NTP servers and bespoke control room furniture. See AES Global at Kitplus Manchester on 5th November.

    At KitPlus, AES Global will be highlighting precision timing solutions for critical IP system infrastructures. With ESE's latest master and grandmaster clocks, broadcasters can synchronise all clocks throughout a network using PTP (Precision Time Protocol) which can achieve nanosecond or even picosecond accuracy.

    ESE Time Code readers with SMPTE or EBU Longitudinal Time , providing frame-accurate time references for editing video & audio, or as a master time reference for radio / TV stations; will also feature.

    Visitors can also talk to AES Global about their 4K/UHD/HD/SD cabling and infrastructure requirements. The company’s new partnership with Argosy means it can also supply a comprehensive range of hardware products and solutions, which can significantly ease the pain of building new production, content management and delivery systems. These include Intelligent power supplies, expandable, stackable, automated ethernet switches, fibre adapters and fibre technology.

    Through its partner, Lund Halsey, AES Global offers guidance and is able to supply specialist control room solutions including bespoke consoles and broadcast facility furniture.

    As a valuable link between manufacturer and end-user, Nicholas and AES Global enable a more effective communication channel to ensure that a) market feedback reaches R&D and the factory floor; and b) professionals in the field are completely up to date with the latest and greatest technology for their business.

  • Boxer

    Boxer

    If you think the leap from analogue to digital and tape to file-based a decade or so ago was disruptive, you haven’t seen anything yet.

    The advent of IP video and associated workflows, coupled with artificial intelligence (AI) and the already rapid content and data streams that will soon become hugely disruptive as a result of SMPTE 2110 collectively mean that – more than ever – you need an objective, independent guide to help you navigate those rapids to safe, and profitable, harbour.

    Boxer Systems’ driving goal is to ensure that you are not crippled by antiquated technologies, systems, or working practices, the majority of which are costly to support and stay in business.

    We have thrived for more than 25 years with the single-minded aim of enabling our customers to do more with less while their competitors do less that costs more.

    Our success requires in-depth knowledge, hands-on experience, and practical creativity – all of which are hallmarks of the stability that we have established and successfully maintained in the midst of multiple technical and cultural disruptions through the decades.

  • Canford

    Canford

    Canford is probably best known for its catalogue and website listing over 15,000 items aimed at those who use or install audio video and communications equipment. The sheer breadth of that target market has meant that Canford has had both the pleasure and responsibility of serving hundreds of thousands of clients since its formation in 1976.

    From the earliest days those clients have ranged from major national broadcasters to one-man businesses and from remote island based customers to a surprising number of FTSE 100 companies. The expectations of those large organisations have meant that Canford has had to maintain a remarkably high standard of customer service and compliance since the beginning. Despite its growth over those years, Canford has always attempted to maintain a very personal approach to its customers and takes great care to maintain that ethos. Of course it is now possible to buy via the internet but if you want to call and talk, you will not be confronted by automated responses, only fellow humans!

    Meet the team

    Canford's 40th CelebrationsOur people make the difference, and together form the team who make Canford. Together we strive to design, develop and manufacture distinctive products, deliver great customer service, create industry leading technical publications and provide customers with unrivalled support.

    Manufacturing and distribution

    At its inception Canford was a hybrid mix of manufacturing and distribution and this continues. No one competes in the scale and complexity of the Canford proposition which is why the business is successful in meeting customer needs in more than 90 countries. Even so, the team still regards itself as having all the characteristics of a small business in terms of the personal approach to their customers but having all the confidence of knowing that the brand offers the quality of product and after sales support of a mature and trusted organisation.

    The R-2K, weighing less than 500g, offers cine-quality 2048x1080 resolution, making it an ideal choice for action sports or for quick troubleshooting of fast events. With the camera’s 10G data transfer, waiting for downloads is a thing of the past. Seamless recording – no waiting. Everything captured – Nothing missed. Ingenious. If longer record times, a smaller camera head or 4K resolution are required, The X-Stream Mini range will have a camera for you. Each of the four new camera heads can be connected to either a thunderbolt signal hub, for streaming images directly to a laptop, or to the powerful new X-Stream Recorder. The XS Recorder can accept up to four cameras, and records direct to the 8TB permanent SSD memory. With the twin 12G SDI interfaces, instant slomo and live streaming can be simultaneously exported, as well as lightning fast data downloads using the 10G Ethernet. These cameras are set to revolutionise the workflow of slow motion imaging. Come to the Kitplus Manchester Show on November 5th to find out more, and to see these exciting new cameras for yourself.

    The traditional incandescent light bulb has been around for over 100 years and it has served us well. However this light source is inefficient and it is time for a change. The LED market is thriving as a sustainable option in today’s rapidly evolving world.

    With the current push for a viable replacement for incandescent lamps, compact fluorescent or low-grade LEDs have rapidly filled this need and your daily environment is greatly impacted by the poor quality of light produced by these systems. With Quasar Science’s clean, color correct technology you will flip the light switch and your home or workspace is transformed with beautiful light that invites comfort, passion and possibilities.
     

    Quasar Science is in a unique position to reach into the exclusive color methodology and technology of the entertainment and event lighting markets giving us the expertise to bring these unique attributes to every home, office, factory and studio.

    There are countless environments could benefit from high color quality such as; event and motion picture lighting, laboratories, hospitals, office buildings, museums, art galleries, educational facilities, industrial as well as in the home. All of which would benefit from greater light quality and efficiency.

    About Vision Research

    It all started in 1950 when a young, idealistic, engineer quit his job at Fairchild Camera to pursue a career in an industry that barely existed. He formed a brand new company named Photographic Analysis Company whose sales mark was "Research Through Photography."

    High speed photography is an engineering tool, much as is an oscilloscope or a computer. It is a photographic technique that enables us to visualize and analyze motion. Especially motions that are too fast for the human eye or conventional cameras to perceive.

    During the first forty two years of the company's existence high speed photographic images were generally "captured" on photographic film. The company excelled in teaching and applying high speed photography to numerous clients for a multitude of applications. The company also designed , manufactured and marketed products specific to the high speed photographic needs of its clients. The company's film based cameras were so widely accepted that they are national stock listed (NSN) by the US DoD.

    In 1992 the company decided to form a separate entity that was to design and fabricate high speed electronic imagers that did not rely on photographic film for imaging. That "spin off" was later to be known as Vision Research® Inc. and their family of electronic imagers is currently marketed under the "Phantom®" trade mark.

    Vision Research prides itself in the high resolution of its images, the power of its software, the reliability of its products and its high level of attentiveness and dedication to its customers. The company's innovative approach to high speed electronic "digital" imaging was recognized by the US Patent Office and was granted US Patent #5,625,412.

    The future holds more technology innovation and unique products from Vision Research. The company's development goals include electronic imaging products with higher resolution and faster frame rates and "smarter" cameras with more powerful and robust software.

    While hardware and software products are important, the company realizes that its key to future success is the same now as it was in 1950 and that is listening to and serving its customers.

  • 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.
