In recent years, the market has been flooded with solutions that build on legacy broadcast and IT technology products, developed by a wide range of established and emerging technology providers. While most producers claim that their products offer interoperability and standard APIs, many system integrators find it simpler to choose from a limited menu of easy-to-integrate products-regardless of whether the products are optimal for their customers’ needs.
At Cinescope, our sole interest is in designing solutions that are optimal for our clients’ needs. Because we are expert in designing and building workflows that integrate diverse products and systems, we select products solely based on how well they meet your needs, not how easy it will be for us to integrate them in the workflow.
To ensure that our customers’ interests and requirements remain central to our mission, Cinescope does not serve as a distributor or representative for any video system provider.
The convergence of video and internet has made it possible as well as potentially profitable for individuals and businesses to monetize content they own, and to leverage access to a large base of potential in-person or online viewers through non-traditional broadcasting initiatives.
Community-based organizations such as school districts, libraries and religious institutions may choose to broadcast lectures, workshops and performances to the larger community via the internet, while large retailers, banks, restaurants and even auto mechanics may distract their waiting customers-and earn advertising revenue–by broadcasting entertainment and advertising content on screens in their waiting areas. Or perhaps a popular blogger wishes to add video content in order to generate more page views.
Cinescope specializes in designing custom solutions that enable non-traditional broadcasters to expand their offerings and capabilities by integrating video broadcast media.
Cinescope Design & Engineering services develop creative and effective solutions for broadcast and media production, post-production, transmission, distribution and communications systems. Whether you need to integrate new capabilities in an existing system or to create a full end-to-end high performance workflow from scratch, our experienced team has the experience and expertise you need. .
Our thorough discovery process is the key to the success of our design and engineering services. Before the first sketch is drawn or spec is written, we make sure that we fully understand the business and technical needs that underlie the project, as well as the path and characteristics of the content that is the lifeblood of every media business.
Once we understand the role the planned solution will serve and how it will be used, we design systems that will continue to provide high-quality signals for years to come, and that can be easily upgraded and scaled as new technologies come online and your business grows. Our systems are precision engineered for outstanding performance, ease of operation, and low maintenance. Fine-grained layouts, workflows, wiring plans, lists of equipment and precise selection of software prevent unpleasant surprises during the installation process.
