The Caledonian Television Company

The Caledonian Television Company
creates broadcast quality video
for small business - we're here for the 99%!

Originally established in October 1986, we are a full service video production company which works to the same standards used in broadcast television. Our service is geared to the budgets of Sole Traders and SMEs - which make up the majority of all businesses in Britain. Our purpose is to make 'blue chip' video production services available to that majority.

We're here for those credible professionals who are really serious about business - and understand the difference between professional presentation and amateurish 'black noise'.

As video specialists we help you script and schedule your production using ISO 9001 compliant quality assurance procedures. In order to protect your business interests we particularly ensure copyright and legal compliance is properly dealt with at all production stages - and we work to the AS-11 technical standards required by UK and European broadcasters for topical content in HD. On site we operate in compliance with all regulatory requirements and to OHSAS 18001.

By prior arrangement - we provide opportunities for partnership working and integrated service provision to legitimate agencies and colleagues in PR, Advertising, Web Design and other creative disciplines. No smoke, no mirrors, no daft novelties. We are genuine broadcast professionals and a small family business, offering a complete script to screen service.

PROFESSIONAL CREWS. We only use crew who have successfully studied TV or Film production at a legitimate UK Academic Institution and/or trained with a major UK broadcaster such as the BBC or one of the ITV companies.

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 over forty years of genuine broadcast experience to his name!

PROFESSIONAL EQUIPMENT. We shoot on genuine broadcast TV cameras - NOT DSLRs! We edit to meet EBU AS-11 broadcast standards for topical content on full edit suites. Naturally, we use traditional broadcast lighting and sound.

Although we'll go head-to-head with them on price, Caledonian TV
™ is distinct from  the usual 'Jack of all trades', videographer and 'video marketer' types - from which we actively distance ourselves!  - We really are legitimate, professional video producers. Almost-uniquely at this price-point, Caledonian TV™ is owned and operated as a small family business by a full-time broadcast professional - So you will always be dealing one-to-one with the business owner and someone who really knows TV production! 

Costly? No! We can make complete programmes
from as little as £800 - inclusive. No catch!

Properly trained people with the right kit - Get the real deal!

As masters of our own trade we simply don't need to pretend to be something we're not!

We've grown a little tired of hearing from those who think they've 'invented the wheel' - Yes, of course we can help with your video strategy and advise on how best to deploy video - we've been doing that since the 1980s. And we will freely help and advise you when it comes to uploading your video to the web, preparing it for public display or for broadcast. - That's is all just a basic part of the service!

We don't feel the need to be pretend to be a 'video marketing agency' or a 'digital agency' - because we know legitimate marketers understand that video is just one highly specialised element of a competent marketing mix - it's no magic bullet. Likewise, we understand and respect that marketing itself is a specialised discipline that takes many years of study and experience to master.  - We're business partners, not poachers.

That is why we work with your choice of web designers, graphics artists, PR, Advertising and marketing agencies and do so in confidence with NDAs as a standard part of our operational terms. For those running legitimate creative agencies, we offer advantageous terms that facilitate partnership working and allow them to integrate high quality video production within their own offering.

Business video requires a solid, business-like, professional approach - and we say that with decades of experience doing just exactly that!
