Broadcasters

Broadcasters face a myriad of media technology challenges ranging from high volumes of throughput, to large groups of users, the complexity of proprietary turnkey broadcast systems and enormous archives of valuable content, to name but a few. These are example of how we’ve helped companies solve these issues. 

ITV

A fully customised platform to handle all their promo campaign management processes utilising the workflow, asset management and integration capabilities of the NMR framework, deployed on hybrid cloud infrastructure.

Viacom

A broadcast media operations workflow platform to handle the quick turnaround of completed programmes received from 3rd parties that require editing, QC, transformation, approval and distribution for broadcast playout across Europe.

MTV

The MTV Europe video archive, 40 years and over 500,000 assets was recently digitised and stored on a large LTO tape archive. NMR deployed a Cantemo Portal Media Asset Management system to help them identify valuable historical content, to repurpose and monetise it.

Hochanda

We helped this UK and German arts and crafts broadcaster by deploying, then supporting their two linear TV channels, which include on-air scheduling, playout automation and real time graphics servers, compliance and timeshift recording systems, clip servers and shared storage, using the complete suite of hardware and software solutions from our partner ToolsOnAir.

News Organisations

News organisation’s main media technology challenges centre around extremely fast turnaround deadlines and large numbers of non-technical users. Two of the top 5 newspapers in Europe and one of the largest commercial radio groups in Europe use our solutions to handle content creation, approval and distribution to OVP and social media platforms.

The Guardian News & Media logo

The Guardian News & Media

We’ve worked with The Guardian on several occasions over the last decade and in 2013, following a highly competitive tender process, NMR was awarded the MMIT project to upgrade their entire video storage and workflow infrastructure, replacing several legacy and discontinued platforms with high performance tiered storage, off site backup for Disaster Recovery and archiving to the cloud. On top of this we deployed a highly customised and sophisticated Cantemo Portal Media Asset Management system to enable their journalists to easily commission, create and publish video stories, all from a single user management interface.

Telegraph Media Group

In 2016 we helped Telegraph Media Group (TMG) by increasing their multi-channel ingest recording capacity and introducing high performance shared video storage, cloud based backup and archiving and a Media Asset Management system.

Global Radio logo

Global Radio

Capital FM and LBC are two of the most popular music and talk radio stations, broadcasting across the UK. The introduction of cameras in the studios offered Global Radio the opportunity to record and publish music performances and interviews onto their own websites and social media channels, to help drive consumer traffic and advertising opportunities. NMR provided a complete platform of ingest, post-production, tiered storage and media asset management, including custom software development and integration into their OVP.

Charities, The Arts

Charities and Arts organisations produce amazing and often unique niche content, usually with limited resources but with the same high production values as much larger content producers.

National Theatre logo

National Theatre

We worked with the National Theatre’s Broadcast team and the public-facing NT Archive service to implement a Cantemo Portal Media Asset Management system capable of supporting both groups.

The Broadcast team produces marketing and promotional videos for the Theatres and is responsible for the production of the NTLive broadcasts. We also migrated content from a legacy MAM and integrated with IT data lifecycle management systems.

The NT Archive curates hundreds of thousands of historical NT assets; still photography, theatre programmes, video recordings of rehearsals and theatrical productions. We helped migrate from an archive of files and folders and spreadsheets to develop a single system the team can use to manage the Archive and be browsed by researchers and the general public.

London Symphony Orchestra

We worked with the LSO’s in-house content production team to implement shared storage and a Cantemo Portal Media Asset Management system that enables them to manage and share video and audio recordings of the LSO performances.

House of worship

Houses of worship accumulate hundreds of hours of valuable archive footage from events and sermons which are broadcast and saved for posterity. Operating much like international broadcasters in their own right, they need to reach a global audience using traditional linear broadcast, live streaming and increasingly video-on-demand. This requires dedicated post-production facilities, archive systems, media asset management and playout facilities.

MTA International logo

MTA International

Muslim Television Ahmadiyya (MTA) in South London houses fully equipped TV and radio studios and editing facilities which are utilized to produce daily programming broadcast globally and live streamed on the MTA website. MTA also produce a major religious summer festival which is filmed and broadcast live. We provided studio recording and archive tape ingest systems, multiple tiers of storage for post-production and archiving and a Cantemo Portal Asset Management System to facilitate these activities.

INCTV logo

INCTV

The Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) Christian church broadcasts to over 100 countries worldwide from Manila, Philippines. Approached via their local partner in 2014 we worked closely with their R&D team to deploy Cantemo Portal Media Asset Management across two of their departments to manage daily news programming and historical archive workflows.

Corporate institutions

Large corporations produce, manage and distribute content throughout the enterprise, often globally and often to broadcast standards. We work with these teams to provide integrated production facilities, tiered storage, media asset management, and ingest and playout systems.

Nomura logo

Nomura

Nomura inherited a legacy SD tape-based production facility when it acquired the Lehman Brother’s European equities and investment banking business in 2008. The business needs facilities like these to produce fast-turnaround and live broadcast content for daily morning analyst briefings and other corporate communications. The legacy system was creaking and not fit for purpose. NMR helped the Multimedia team to transform the facility and we designed and deployed a brand new flexible, scalable tapeless, multiple channels of HD ingest, playout and post production facility in their new London HQ. The original system was installed in 2011 and upgraded in 2016.

UBS logo

UBS

When UBS relocated premises on London we designed and deployed the new production facilities, with multiple live channels of ingest, storage, post production and playout facilities. The Communications team relies on this system to broadcast live and recorded events from the auditorium and other corporate content throughout the company.

EDF logo

EDF Energy

The EDF nuclear safety inspection team is responsible for ensuring EDF’s nuclear production facilities operate safely across their 12 UK sites. By using highly customised medical imaging cameras they are able to conduct visual and technical safety inspections of parts of the reactor facility that cannot be easily accessed by people. Their previous workflow was extremely linear and time consuming in nature, so we designed a new nonlinear recording and custom media ingest and logging process for the on site inspection teams, based on a Cantemo Media Asset Management system.

Public services

Organisations in the public sector increasingly rely upon video records as much as paper. Video records are subject to same level of compliance as all other records and we work with teams to meet these and the operational requirements.

UK Supreme Court logo

UK Supreme Court

The Audiovisual team at the UK Supreme Court are responsible for recording court sessions for public record and to supply live feeds for broadcasters. As well as multiple channels of ingest and post production facilities we designed and deployed a system to help manage and catalogue the large library of court sessions which are required for the public archive.
