The Farm Group Takes Control With Pro-Bel

Pro-Bel's Morpheus Control and Monitoring (MCM) solution has been installed by The Farm Group, the cutting-edge TV and film post-production facility based in London's Soho district.
MCM is playing a crucial part in the technology evolution of The Farm, a name synonymous with primetime TV, having worked on shows like 'The X-Factor', 'Ross Kemp on Gangs' and 'Hustle', to name just a few. The Farm recently turned ten years old and is celebrating by revamping its technology offering.
Jack Edney, The Farm's Chief Engineer, said: "The 13 Soho Square building was the start of The Farm 10 years ago. Now it has been fully refurbished and Pro-Bel's MCM is an integral part of the infrastructure management."
MCM offers a flexible and user-friendly set of technologies for supervising and controlling broadcast production and delivery networks. It provides access to multiple systems from one, user-definable interface, simplifying decision-making and operational actions for users and freeing them up to react quickly and flexibly to live or unexpected events. It is compatible with both third-party and proprietary Pro-Bel routing, automation, master control and signal processing products.
Edney explained: "It is essential that MCM is compatible with multiple platforms, this is key to a good operational environment. Its comprehensive integration capability means that it makes complete sense to go down the MCM route. But, of course, it is also the best possible way of controlling the routers hardware which Pro-Bel has also supplied. These routers form an integral part of the picture editing and sound suites and the flexibility of MCM is crucial for our operational setup."
The results so far have Soho smiling. Edney confirmed: "We are achieving everything we expected to, the team at Pro-Bel have been great to work with and attentive to all of our requests."
Other recent MCM customers include ITN and Red Bee Media. Pro-Bel's Regional Business Development Manager, UK & Ireland, Malcolm Butler, said: "The fact that MCM has now been chosen by a leading broadcaster, a top service provider and one of the foremost post-production houses is confirmation to us that our vision of a unified monitoring and control system is the right one."
