About Red Cat Broadcasting Ltd

Red Cat Broadcasting has behind it over 30 years of communications, electronic and RF engineering experience coupled with extensive broadcast knowledge with over 15 years of BBC training, experience and skills.

These engineering and broadcast skills have come together to build a state-of-the art DSNG vehicle equipped with solutions to make your life easier, smoother and get your broadcast out there to your clients reliably and quickly.

The driving force behind Red Cat Broadcasting is Managing Director Benjamin Jewell. Previously employed by the BBC at Birmingham’s Pebble Mill studios and then latterly Television Centre and the Broadcast Centre, Benjamin takes his extensive engineering knowledge and skills and puts them to good use at Red Cat Broadcasting.

Our stylish, modern truck (designed and built by us) boasts a wealth of broadcast technology for both transmit and streaming to receiving reverse vision or off air feeds along with mobile internet and full solid state media ingest and editing on board.

Based centrally near Kettering in the East Midlands we are a stone’s throw from the M1, M6 and A1M major motorways for north-south destinations and right by the A14 major trunk road for east-west destinations and access to the M11 and therefore can offer a rapid deployment for any breaking news story or event.
