JOSE DE FREITAS CONSIDERS THE TECHNOLOGY BUSINESS CYCLE
During the late 1980’s Corporate Video budgets were estimated at £1000 per minute when the total cost of staff, cameras, and post production were taken into account. Considering that an Avid editing suite would have cost over £120,000 and the cameras required would be a similar amount this comes as no surprise.
Today you can download a free copy of Avid Media Composer and get started in video production using consumer-grade cameras and phones.
Our Technical Support Team has a combined experience of over 200 years, and we also like to talk so don’t be surprised if we call just to see how you are – you never know when this might unearth that nugget of information that you have been looking for.
Evaluating the team I found that the foundations were firmly laid down in the world of facilities. We all know what it is to work to tight deadlines and delivery schedules, we all know how to juggle limited editing suites and moreover we all know what it takes to deliver support in what seems like an unachievable situation.When I sought to add to the team I wanted to keep this ethos, therefore it made sense to go looking within facilities rather than to train up someone who didn’t know the industry.
Salisbury-based Major Tom are supporting long-term client Ed Sheeran with a full production package on his current ‘Divide Tour’, an extraordinary global trek for the singer-songwriter that started in early 2017 and is scheduled to finish some 20 months later in November 2018.
Soon after Ben Tredwell’s visit he received a request from Major Tom, to assist with an on-the-road upgrade to their comms system.
Ben arranged a demo of the Clear-Com Freespeak II system at Sheeran’s Manchester concert and then subsequently delivered and assisted with the setup of the final configuration at the Newcastle show.

How industry ‘Lingo’ can ruin a budding relationship
We work in a very competitive market, roughly speaking when talking with a potential new customer we have maybe a 5-minute window to make, not just a good impression, but also an impression of trust.
Trust is so important for the ongoing relationship between a customer and supplier, with trust in place everyone wins, but it must be earned, and can easily disappear – even before it has had a chance to build.
