Based just outside Edinburgh, The Caledonian Television
Company™ is a family-owned, family-run, business television
consultancy. We make high quality, low cost video
programmes to meet business needs such as sales, marketing, training,
exhibitions, education, web video, advertising and for commercial
release. We also independently advise and assist with the
deployment and use of video as a business communications and training
tool. - A complete script to screen production and management service!
Originally established in October 1986, at Red Road - which stood on
the the very site of the old Caledonian Railway's yards in Glasgow's
Springburn district - The Caledonian Television Company™ is still owned
and run by its founder, Matt Quinn; an ITV-trained cameraman - and
former Lecturer in Television Production - with forty years of
genuine broadcast experience under his belt! Caledonian
TV™ is almost unique at the price point in being lead by a legitimate
broadcast professional and in operating to broadcast production
protocols and standards. We employ decades of commercial video
experience to protect and advance your business interests. And in
contrast to many, we only employ professional crew who are specifically
qualified in film and/or TV production via legitimate UK
academic institutions and/or trained by UK broadcasters. - Strictly no
randoms, no dreamers and absolutely no 'Space Cadets' - Former or
otherwise! What's more, our service is specifically geared to meeting
the needs of ambitious small businesses.
Caledonian Television™ offer Blue-chip quality video production at a realistic price. We shoot every programme on genuine (EBU tier 2 minimum) high definition broadcast television cameras of the kind regularly used for filming news and documentaries - not DSLRs! Our broadcast camera kits are supported by traditional broadcast lighting and sound equipment - all crews carry a range of professional microphones, including full radio mic kit, from the top names in broadcast such as Sennheiser, Audio Technica and AKG.
Your video will be edited and mastered on a full edit suite to the same specifications used by most European broadcasters for topical content - not simply cobbled together on a laptop! We also provide a full audit trail for everything we shoot and produce to ensure proper control and management of copyright and intellectual property rights. The end result is both legally safe and technically competent - for upload to the internet for anything from sharing on social media sites such as YouTube, to embed on your website or to stream commercially, distribute on DVD (either in PAL or NTSC as you might require) or Blu-Ray, or 'wrap' to the European AS-11 protocol for broadcast on terrestrial or satellite television. You can even show your finished film in almost any, modern, digitally-equipped commercial cinema!
Although we'll go head-to-head with them on price - we can make complete programmes from just £800 - the service provided by Caledonian TV™ should never be confused with what is on offer by those calling themselves 'videographers' or 'video marketers' - both terms we actively reject and distance ourselves from! We are properly trained, properly qualified, experienced video producers that specialise in producing low cost video for small business. Solving a problem where previously it was difficult or impossible to afford to hire genuine professionals with the proper skills and kit necessary to get legally-safe results, on a par with broadcast television. We say, your business deserves no less!
