Most broadcasters and producers have been struggling to understand the analogue to digital transition taking place throughout the world. Often, we hear clients say – “Analogue will be around for a long time to come so why go digital” – our answer follows in three parts:-
The manufacturers of analogue equipment have no interest in keeping analogue equipment alive as they have invested millions of dollars in research and development in digital technology.
Digital technology is cheaper and of higher quality than analogue.
Europe and the USA both have laws in place which will ban analogue transmission within the next 10 years.
So whether we like it or not the change will come and sooner than we all think. Right now every broadcaster and producer, from the smallest to the largest, is struggling with the budgetary problems of making this transition.
As specialists in the East African markets where budgets are of prime concern, we are able to provide our clients with solutions which allow them to carry on using their existing analogue equipment while slowly integrating the new technology without redundancy.
Increasingly, the media and entertainment industry is looking to digital storage solutions to solve their content archive problems.
With the industry embracing an all-digital process that encompasses everything from filming to postproduction and distribution, the time is right to move content libraries from tapes or offline vaults to scalable digital archive systems.
Visual Engineering Services Ltd helps organizations make that move by covering each of the four areas that must be considered in developing a digital archive—capacity, performance, reliability, and cost.
We at Visual Engineering Services believe that our client’s personnel are the key to success. We have a team of the industry’s top trainers with a proven track record.
The term training refers to the acquisition of knowledge, skills and competencies as a result of the teaching of vocational or practical skills and knowledge that relate to specific useful competencies. We at Visual Engineering Services Ltd believe that the HR of the client’s personnel is key to the success of the institutional goals. We have a team of the industry’s top trainers with a proven track record of results.

We provide turnkey solutions for designing conference halls, meeting rooms and boardroom facilities.
Our design team includes architects, structural engineers, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers sound engineers, interiors designers, lighting experts and builders.
Our approach to designing these facilities is to carry out a site survey and prepare a project brief. When the project is approved then a set of 3D drawings of the proposed final design is signed off by the client thereby preventing errors in the final project implementation.
We can incorporate projection facilities, audio and translation facilities, teleprompting , intelligent lighting, remote camera production facilities, editing and DVD duplication facilities.
No matter how big or small the project, equipment purchasing and inventory management is a crucial process within any project. Much of the equipment is ordered from overseas, increasing the complexity of purchasing.
Manufacturers need constant monitoring to assure that the right equipment arrives on time. Purchasing schedules need to be integrated into the project schedule to prevent delays.Visual Engineering Services Ltd’s Purchasing Team is a key contributor to any of our client’s projects.
Our equipment acquisition services provide you with our Purchasing Team’s expertise in handling and managing equipment ordering, scheduling, testing upon arrival, preparation and staging for the client’s project. Moreover, our manufacturer relationships assure you of excellent pricing and priority delivery.
We take the supply of equipment very seriously from the smallest items to the largest turnkey project. Our goal is to attain the client’s ultimate satisfaction.
The first phase of every project is System Design, which begins with a needs analysis. The needs analysis is produced through a series of meetings between our team of engineers and architects and your team to clearly understand and define your exact expectations, functional requirements, and a realistic budget.
Once we have articulated the client’s needs, we begin drafting workflow and signal flow diagrams. The purpose of these diagrams is to visually illustrate how your solution will work and how it needs to be engineered. With the workflow diagrams, we reconcile your team’s personal preferences with our team’s recommendations to determine the best technical products and configuration of every key piece of equipment. This includes items such as cameras, switchers, routers, monitors, editing systems, lighting, acoustics, storage, video servers, 2D and 3D effects systems, and more.
With the workflow and budget confirmed, our team then develops floor plan layouts, estimated power consumption, and AC requirements. If we are working with a new building, these are critical inputs for the building architect and building contractor.
Once we’ve completed workflow diagrams, our Human Resources Team prepares staffing requirements for the solution. This will allow the client to have a head start on hiring and budgeting for staff. In addition to Phase 1, our HR Team can help you assemble job descriptions. (Responsibilities and requirements and if need be we can place temporary staff while permanent staff is being sourced)
After design is completed, engineering can begin.
