Our clients include MBC TV, The World Bank and various UN organisations. We have supplied TV and radio stations to clients across the UK, as well as exporting to Sudan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Ghana, Nigeria and Kenya among many others around the world.
The company started when we were awarded the technical construction and acoustic design of the radio and music facilities for the School of Performing Arts known as the Brit School in London in 1992. Since then the company has gone from strength to strength.

Managing Director and Founder Roy Parsons has collected many years of experience and product knowledge from working on radio and tv stations around the world.
His first mixer design was at the age of 14 when he built his own radio studio. These designs evolved and were later custom built for the Radio Luxembourg English Service in Hertford St, London in the mid 1970s. For the last 30 years he has worked as a studio designer and engineer. As the technical manager of many leading recording studios he has worked on albums by artists such as Sheena Easton, Sade, Everything but the Girl, Whitney Houston, Tom Robinson, Robert Wyatt, Sean Lennon and The Lightning Seeds, working at studios such as 145 Wardour St., Audio International, Radio Luxembourg Hertford St. London, The Barge, Little Venice, London, Power Plant Studio, Willesden, Trident Sound Studios and Angell Sound Studios among many others.
Few radio engineers and designers have had the opportunity to work on so many US and UK no.1 singles. Roy has also worked at Tuff Gong Studios in Jamaica and on projects for Rita Marley in Ghana. He also managed the restoration of vintage unreleased Bob Marley concert recordings.
All key employees have a good working knowledge of broadcasting, most having come from positions within the industry, while all employees have an engineering background.
