Corporate Vision - For SMALL Businesses!
Legitimate professionals - with the right tools
for the job!
When it comes
to business video, our focus is on small businesses run by
real people living in the real world.
The Caledonian Television
Company™ is a full service business video production company
founded in 1986 at the Red Road in Glasgow - on the very grounds where
the old Caledonian Railway once ruled the rails. Built on
traditional working values, we're proud to be a small unpretentious
family business, primarily serving the 99%+ of all Scottish businesses
that are Sole Traders, Micro-businesses or SMEs. - As well of course as
third sector and public service providers.
We're masters of our trade -
video production specialists working collaboratively with the Marketing,
Design, PR and Training industries as opposed to trying to poach work
from them by pretending to be 'anything and everything'!
Caledonian TV™ is owned and run
by a legitimate broadcast professional with well over 40 years of
industry experience to their name - Not someone who simply
'drifted into' video production or has tacked it on to some other
service as an afterthought; but the real deal! That level of expertise,
legitimacy and grounded industry understanding is the
cornerstone of what we do... We're pragmatic, down to earth, realistic
and actually mean business!
Our offer is quite
simple; experienced, specifically-qualified people with the
right tools, do the job they are actually trained and qualified to do,
at a reasonable price. No smoke, no mirrors, no hard
sell. - No "mug's eyeful"!
We can make complete programmes
from as little as £800 for sales, promotion, social media, training,
education, exhibition, advertising and most other legitimate business
purposes. Our low prices are achieved simply by eliminating cost-drivers
that do not contribute to the quality of your final programme. We
collaborate with your choice of Marketing, PR or advertising
agency; or indeed your in-house team. - No upsell or
We work to UK broadcast
standards (both technical and operational) in order to protect your
business interests; helping to solve the problems of quality, project,
legal, and technical risk associated with using unqualified, untrained
'semi pros' and other non-specialists. - Vital, in an increasingly
litigious real-world with an increasingly toxic social media
Our core values
are client focused; protecting your business interests, providing
excellent value and cutting through the rubbish to make high
quality video an affordable reality for the majority of small local
We make real television
programmes for real-world businesses. We also provide
production services for select news and documentary makers -
general production management and assistance, programme research
and editorial services, scripting, compliance monitoring and auditing,
video editing, crew and technical consultancy.
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.
First established in October 1986 - The
Caledonian Television Company™ is still owned and run
by its founder, Matt Quinn; an ITV-trained cameraman - and
former College Lecturer in Television Production - with
well over forty years of genuine broadcast experience.
PROFESSIONAL EQUIPMENT. We shoot on real
broadcast TV cameras - NOT DSLRs! We edit to meet EBU broadcast
standards for topical content on full edit suites. And naturally,
we use traditional broadcast lighting and sound.
Truly professional video production - made
Your professional video partners...
production specialists we routinely project-manage productions from
the initial concept stage to delivery and upload - coordinating and

We are equally comfortable
working with your in-house team or choice of independent
creative professionals to complete specific project stages or
components. Similarly, we work in direct partnership with other legitimate
creative industry practitioners, to bring high quality video
production in to their offering.
All of our work is covered by
strict, legally binding non-disclosure (NDA) policies that provide you
with full security over your project. From the initial
consultation on, you can be sure that all discussions are in strict
confidence and that your sensitive commercial information is safe with
us. - We also work proactively to protect your intellectual
property and that of others; ensuring issues such as copyright and
advertising codes are properly addressed.
Our approach is unusual in that
we are selective about the work we take on and the projects we become
involved with. We're upfront about the fact that video is not always a
good fit for every project or circumstance. - Our first
priority is to help you explore what's feasible within your
budget to meet your needs.
