From a resource perspective, the solution had to be incredibly simple to use. With a diverse busy production schedule of live music and awards shows, political conferences, global and domestic sporting competitions, light entertainment and current aﬀairs, it was essential that Timeline was able to create a working environment where both staﬀ and freelancers could hit the ground running and control devices with ease.
Live Production | Timeline TV | Cerebrum
Leading broadcast solutions provider, Timeline Television, has deployed Cerebrum across its entire operation, controlling hundreds of devices and complex IP workﬂows to deliver 4K content and live events. Key to its success has been Cerebrum’s ultra user-friendly interface, which ensures a hassle-free and ﬂexible workﬂow is guaranteed for every single production.
Timeline is trusted by some of the biggest brands in the international TV market, including the BBC, BT Sport, ITV and Channel 4, to deliver innovative, leading-edge multi-format broadcast solutions, with value-for money services tailored to their needs. It has invested heavily in IP infrastructure to allow it to work smarter and future-proof its growing business.
The success of this strategy relied on the deployment of a highly-sophisticated central control platform at the heart of its operations – to reliably manage the latest IP technologies, support multi-format delivery and streamline workﬂows.
With a proven track-record across OB productions worldwide, Cerebrum oﬀers the most comprehensive third-party device-control in the market. Its reliability and simplicity make it the perfect ft for Timeline now and in the future.
Since its first installation in 2015, Timeline now deploys over ten Cerebrum systems across its operations, seamlessly controlling and monitoring hundreds of multi-vendor devices and applications. From Timeline’s Ealing Broadcast Centre to it’s entire ﬂeet of OB vehicles and ﬂyaway kits, Cerebrum enables workﬂows to ﬂow without a hitch.
“Cerebrum is the perfect tool to allow us to control so many devices all from one system. But it’s Cerebrum’s incredibly simple user-interface that makes us love it so much – productions are slicker and our crews are happier as a result”.
