A considered approach for delivering broadcast technology projects: Production 360° speaks to Caspian One

There is a fundamental shift happening in the industry that’s picking up pace. Here, Production 360 speak to Caspian One to discuss the change in detail:

Broadcasters are progressing plans to upgrade their systems, move past end-of-life equipment, migrate from legacy to new technologies or even build from scratch – but are facing challenges resulting from a lack of internal capability, often related to the latest technologies and skillsets.

We’re also witnessing more broadcasters selecting to create their own platforms rather than buying off the shelf. This is because self-production offers simpler management, fewer vendor lock-in scenarios, more developmental flexibility and greater functionality.

As such, there is a high demand for flexible workforces that can get a project ‘off the ground’ – along with a longer-term need to establish permanent teams that can maintain the platform once released.

Our industry is one packed with passionate, creative people emotionally connected to their work and the content they put to air.

Because of this, there can be a real concern when rolling out upgrade projects or transitioning to new technologies… exacerbated by the vast number mission-critical systems overlapping across broadcast workflows.

Broadcast technology projects are complicated to deliver; that’s the reality.

You have external regulations, tight deadlines, budgets to manage, risks to navigate… and whether it’s modernising to gain a competitive advantage or dealing with legacy infrastructure or stubborn systems, the need to work smart has never been more important.

In response, we developed Caspian One Projects… a dedicated service designed to help our clients deliver complex technology projects flexibly, in a way that protects them from changing regulations.

We are enabling industry modernisation and the transition to new technologies – by supporting systems integration and upgrades, tech and business transformation, and the development of new platforms across broadcast workflows.

Our Caspian One Projects Division own the project deliverables and manage the associated resources from a central Project Hub.

They provide the project management, governance and support, while our highly experienced internal team and Partners work on delivering a solution against defined milestones. We don’t carry the overhead of traditional consultancy and this cost saving is passed on to our clients.

This September, we will be meeting with people across the Broadcast Media industry at IBC 2022, Amsterdam. During the show, we’ll be sharing more insights relating to Caspian One Projects and exploring our client’s latest technology initiatives.
