Suitcase TV: we make a difference.
The year 2000 was an exciting year full of anticipation for what the new century would bring. It felt like a milestone in human evolution. It was also the year that Suitcase TV came into being with the mission of creating products for the broadcast industry that were innovative, compact and efficient. In short, we wanted to do things differently.
A decade later and we remain certain that doing it differently is the right thing to do. Our customers agree that our products enable them to do things differently, to improve efficiency and to increase productivity. We can make a significant difference to their business by making the investment in innovation they can improve their bottom line.
We began with compliance recording solutions and we were one of the first companies to deliver to the market place a disk-based solution. We remain one of the few companies who can offer solutions for capturing and recording ASI.
Because we develop all our own products we make a point of listening to what our customers say is missing in the solutions available in the market place. We make our products meet those needs and more. Our product portfolio is now extensive with the result that we can deliver a complete MAM system in a single device, and offering the full range of functionality from ingest to editing, publishing, transcoding and automated playout.
Caring about the environment
At Suitcase TV we try, wherever possible, to use environmentally friendly practices throughout all aspects of our business.
Our product design is heavily influenced by our customer’s needs to be fuel-efficient. Every KWh of energy used by equipment is trebled by the need to maintain an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and in cooling to take away the excess heat. Our efficient designs make a difference.
We take seriously our duties under the WEEE regulations and ensure that none of our products end up in landfill. Even the everyday waste (paper, cardboard, plastics, metal & glass) are recycled.
Even our offices are cooled using air-replacement rather than fuel-hungry air-conditioning units. Our convenient town centre location enables us to encourage the use of environmentally friendly transport among our staff, the majority of whom now come to work by bus, train or walking. We support the local economy by using local suppliers and manufacturers. We are proud to say the carbon saving effect on these policies is significant.
