This Cambridge business designs, manufactures and installs technology for the broadcasting industry, including its own products for signal acquisition and monitoring. Key customers are Bloomberg, Sky and the BBC. The company has worked on a connectivity transition project that overhauled how the corporation manages technology. It is currently working on a broadcast facility for BBC Wales, with work set for completion next year.
