Media Engineers are pleased to work with best-in-class partners who provide technical excellence and value to our customers. We provide representation and resell for the following manufacturers. Where appropriate we hold demo stock and can bring evaluation kit to your studio or facility for you to assess it's suitability to your workflow.
Barnfind - The industry leaders in fibre multiplexing and signal conversion/routing. If you need to send multiple broadcast or data signals (synchronous and asynchronous - SDi, AES, MADI AND ethernet, fibre-channel and others) over long distance (campus or metro-link - greater than 50Kms) and the problems of doing it over IP (latency, poor quality caused by compression etc.) are onerous then Barnfind is the best choice. Additionally Barnfind has launched their BarnColor range - throw-down boxes that bring all the benefits of multiplexed fibre signal transport over zero-config units that cost OpEx rather than CapEx money.
Have you seen the BBC's Six and Ten O'Clock News? The very sleek robots that carry the cameras around BBC Broadcasting House Studio B are a generation ahead of current manufacturers. Face recognition and tracking along with intelligent pedestal control (even allowing other manufacturers' robots to be controlled) are unique to Electric Friends. Additionally the flush camera track is sunk a mere 25mm into the floor (temporary event-tracks are also available) and the armoured hybrid power/optical cable is laid and collected from the same track that the robot runs on. The robots are LIDAR equiped so that they are unable to run into each other, people or furniture; consequently this is the only robotic system that conforms to the EU Machine Safety Directive meaning that non-trained staff and robots can operate in the same space.
Colour accurate monitors are a requirement of modern film and TV facilities and Eizo have models running from edit suite all the way to DolbyVision mastering monitors. If you have won a Netflix contract (for example) and need a top of the line HDR grading monitor let us know (we will ship you a demo unit and come and run you through it's features) or if your needs are a more modest display then call as well. Eizo are unique because as well as being technically ahead of the better known Japanese manufacturer they have a five-year onsite warrantee. If you Eizo fails (or can't be calibrated to better than EBU-spec) within five years of purchase they will ship you a replacement whilst they collect and make good on yours.
Although modern displays are orders of magnitude more stable than CRTs there is still a need to keep projectors and mastering monitors correctly calibrated; particularly as we now have to deal with multiple standards. ColourSpace is the industry leader for accuracy and usability for either manual calibration or closed-loop LUT-based calibration. ColourSpace has integrated support for many display manufacturers; in the case of Eizo it can drive the internal patch genarator and when the analysis is complete it can directly upload calibration LUTs into the monitor producing unrivaled accuracy for BT709, DCI-P3, DolbyVision or HLG. When you book Media Engineers to calibrate at your studio we come armed with ColourSpace
We buy all our cables and connectors from Simply as they have decades of experience in the film and TV installation industry and represent excellent value and after-sales care.
