Who we are…

To exploit the successful commercial invention of the Mini Voice Killer ™ Burnie Productions was founded in 1984. We did not only manufacture this niche product but also we had a product-line of compressors, limiters, audio and video distribution amplifiers and we were one of the founders an unique dynamic RMS level detector, which is still used in a lot of feed-forward compressors and active loudspeaker systems around the world. We also did some research products for other manufactures, like a compact ENG mixer, timecode generators & readers and intercom systems.

Our engineering expertise started in 1987 when we build several audio and video mobiles for companies like Eurosound, Cinevideo and ENG-Videohouse.
Since 1996 the consultancy activities became a bigger part of our company profile and we have a nice track-record in the broadcast and entertainment industry in the Benelux countries for education, training, starting up (commercial) international, regional or local TV stations.

How we work

Business Canvas Model

Used to run multibillion projects and we use or skills to prevent (un)expected change requests, so normally wo handover projects in-time-in-budget. The complexibility in almost every project we’re involved with is that the install, implementation or (re)location should never interfere with the daily operations, so some smart project planning is required: our specialty! Except from the standard PMP/PMI/PMBOK relative Project Management accreditations & methodologies, we work with the business-canvas-model principle:

It’s common to operate in the background (on paper) if that suits the organization better, but actually handles the next PM(O) functions like:

  • Intermediary between senior (stakeholders) management & the daily output team(s)
  • Communication with the (solution or technical) Architects for implementation for the required infra-structure when required (including construction works)
  • Enable to deliver all corporate & broadcast IT and broadband broadcast installations
  • Setup, manage & control a Program Plan with:

o   Communication structure program
o   Realistic Project plan
o   Risk assets management reporting
o   Change request structure
o   Control deliverables & (payment) milestones
o   Control BOM (bill or materials) & logistics
o   Organize regular meetings & reporting (top-up & top-down)
o   Budget and/or Financial structure & reporting

  • As solution Architect making designs in Autocad
  • Create Factory & Site Acceptance Test documents (FAT/SAT)
  • Evaluate technical designs
  • Full project responsibility
