The world of broadcast has been transformed during the past four decades and IPE has been there at every step of the way. IPE are truly experts in their field, having led projects rolling out digital radio, HD television, 4K television, Dolby Atmos™, SMPTE-2110 and related IP broadcast technologies. We offer a complete end-to-end service from system consultancy, design, pre-build, testing, configuration, installation, to system hand-over and training. We also offer each part of the service in a modular approach that means our clients can work with us as they prefer. We are used to delivering projects in new buildings, refurbishments of old buildings and even moving studios seamlessly from one location to another. Our clients have entrusted us with supporting their business activities across radio, television, new media, live performance streaming and high-end secure conferencing (in government and corporate settings). We help our clients to deliver high quality content on easy-to-use and reliable platforms, with user-defined workflows, while delivering operational efficiencies.

In the mid 2000s we were exploring the application of IP broadcasting and couldn’t find suitable products, so we developed our own range of “IDS” equipment. This grew to such a size that we divested it in 2019 to focus on our core systems work.

IPE’s team of skilled and experienced engineers and project managers are supported by in-house procurement and logistics staff to ensure that the right equipment is sourced from across the world, and integrated into the systems that work for our clients.

We are well used to the broadcast environment, planning work to fit around live studios and scheduling challenges. While the majority of our work has been in the UK, we can also work overseas as required. We have recently completed new studio installations in Germany and France, for example.

Our work is best explained by a list of some of the world-leading organisations who have turned to IPE to deliver their projects. Many have worked with IPE since its inception in 1983, long before the founding of the new media organisations who we now also support.

We are privately owned by our own management, and offer all advice and services completely independent of any manufacturer. We will work with any preferred suppliers that our clients may choose, on a full procurement or free issue basis.

If you have an idea for a project, we will gladly discuss it with you and help you deliver the best possible solution to meet your budget and timescales.

If you have an idea, then come to us and we will make it happen.
