Based just outside Edinburgh, Caledonian TV™ is a family-owned,
family-run, television consultancy. We write, produce and direct low
cost video programmes to meet business needs such as sales, marketing,
training, web video, advertising and for commercial release.
We also provide research and crew for broadcast television,
newsgathering and documentary.
The service we provide is for those that really are serious about business - who properly understand that to rise above the 'black noise' of the internet requires a professional approach that is focused on quality. Unusually - while we do work to 'blue chip' standards - Caledonian TV™ specialise in meeting the needs of those with very restricted budgets. Our main interest is in serving small businesses such as ambitious startups, sole traders, public service groups, micro businesses and SMEs; solving a problem where previously it was difficult or impossible to afford to hire genuine professionals with the proper kit necessary to get results on a par with broadcast television. This is achieved simply by operating on lean production principles, prioritising customer value and eliminating waste.
The key difference between us, and those that describe themselves as videographers or 'video marketers' is that Caledonian TV™ actively project-manage the production process in exactly the same way as programmes for broadcast TV are made - we do that to ensure the quality and legality of your programme. We are also genuine professionals - properly trained and qualified, specifically in TV production through legitimate UK academic institutions. - Strictly no 'randoms', no 'space cadets' (former or otherwise) nor dreamers or gimmicks - just genuine professionals doing the job they're qualified to do!
What's more, we're properly equipped - filming with real TV cameras and (not DSLRs!) and working to recognised industry (EBU) standards - with broadcast sound and lighting.
As we only invove ourselves in the making of programmes, there is no misleading upsell. - We won't, for example, try to flog you overpriced hosting or 'SEO' services. We don't pretend to be 'web designers' or 'social media gurus'. Nor will we hold your final programme 'hostage' through some dodgy 'video marketing' deal! - We're here to serve thedesign, marketing and PR community - not poach work from it!
Originally established in 1986, on the site of the old Caledonian Railway's yards in Glasgow's Springburn district, Caledonian Television™ is still owned and run by its founder Matt Quinn; an ITV-trained broadcast professional - and former Lecturer in Television Production - with almost forty years of genuine broadcast experience under his belt!
