ABOUT US

Driven by our values

With technology as our bedrock we have a unique approach to facilities delivery.  Our fleet of OB trucks provide UHD, 3G and 1080i, HDR and SDR in a range of sizes to fit any venue or budget.  With scalable IP trucks, utilising SMPTE 2110 and 2022-6 and conventional HD-SDI topology the Cloudbass fleet offers a technological solution to deliver the most complex of OB’s.

 

Innovation is at the heart of what we do however this is not at the expense of robust productions. Getting to air and staying there is our number one priority for your content. That said, we have pioneered in many areas, such as taking the first sports property to a completely tapeless workflow in 2011 for ITV and BTCC to a fully integrated 2110 IP UHD truck for Sky in 2019, the first of its kind in the UK. Our investment and innovation has continued in many areas with a Riedel Mediornet distributed UHD router for CBOB10 and cutting edge sustainable power systems for SPFL and Sky. Responsible innovation to make your programmes better is what we do.

 

Our UK Headquarters in the East Midlands puts us nearer to the action all of the time, large trucks for large work and smaller trucks and vans for smaller work is one more efficient way of working which adds up to more sustainable delivery.  Cloudbass Scotland has a dedicated staff team supplemented by local freelancers delivering over 150 OB’s per year, with resources, key skills and knowledge retained within the region, as well as saving OB miles and the carbon-footprint. Our unique in-house carbon calculator can help with your Albert certification requirements.

POWER SOLUTIONS

We've got the power

Sustainable power supply is a key factor in the ability to deliver low-carbon and carbon neutral OBs.  What was acceptable for generations past now needs clean, appropriately sized power solutions for each situation.
