Customer Reviews About Our A/V and Broadcast Solutions
Two years ago NCTV in Newport took the plunge and switched broadcast systems from Leightronix to Tightrope Cablecast. It was a huge investment, upgrade and risk. UMS installed the system and had us up and running in a day. Since then I’ve worked with Michael, Matt and Jake many times when we’ve had problems and needed help with hardware and getting devices to read each other. Their responses are immediate and help as quickly as they can manage. Michael Ridinger has a great team and I am glad that we are working with them.

Unique Access Media goes the distance! Jake has assisted us recently with network issues that resulted from major storm-related power outages in town. Not only did he get us back up to full service for our viewers, he continues to pursue solutions to the issues. I am confident and pleased with the support and service we have received from 1UAM. Thank You.

We shut down our studio in March and were looking for a solution that would enable us to stream Zoom meetings to our channel and continue to offer live programming. Unique Media Systems provided a solution and we were back in business broadcasting live meetings and interviews. Michael and his team have been responsive when called to troubleshoot Zoom and general broadcasting issues.

Canton Community Television has used Unique Media Systems for several complex jobs. From installation of a new playback system so that we could accommodate our newly contracted HD station, to streaming and the use of video on demand, to fiber cable installs, our growing and expanding needs have been met by Unique Media Systems.
Whenever our stations have faced a complex issue, Unique Media Systems has been there to help us get through it. The physical installations are professional and neat and always followed up by ‘’as-built” drawings. They have networking help as well as traditional SDI installs, which is needed with today’s changing delivery systems.
Most importantly, the work Media Systems does is collaborative. You as the customer explain your needs and hopes and the company works with you to get there. The professional staff is readily available and always have the technical skills to work out even the most unique technical issues. We have full confidence in their capacities to help us design, deliver and resolve issue to keep our community stations working while delivering local programming in ever-expanding ways.
Tanya Willow, General Manager, Canton Community Television
Our organization has been using Unique Scientific for several years and we could not be happier. Michael and his team are prompt, effective, and their pricing is fair. Their knowledge and professionalism has helped us with all of our video, audio, and technical needs. They are essential to what we do.
Steve DeCarlo, City of Somerville
For almost a decade now, we have relied on Unique Media Systems for all of our engineering and equipment needs. The planning and design are well thought out with full consideration being given to both the end-users and the space that this equipment occupies. There are no shortcuts here, and work is done with precision and care by the knowledgeable staff performing this work. Working with Unique Media Systems during this time, we now have both a state-of-the-art community television facility and robotic camera-equipped municipal meeting rooms for coverage of local meetings and events. For a smaller PEG Access Television facility, this type of service is key to working within the tighter budget constraints we have to work with. Their work is completed thoroughly on time and under budget. They’ve even repaired and upgraded other installations that I would have previously considered sub-par until Unique Media Systems performed the necessary repairs and upgrades. There is really no one else we prefer to work with, and they’ve always come through for us whenever needed.

We worked with Michael on upgrading our Cablecast system that hadn’t been really upgraded in about five years. Our old systems were using Windows 7 Pro, and were constantly running out of space.
Michael helped pull us into 2021! Right before the New Year we started our new online streaming service and were able to pull off a night of 4 hours of original pre-recorded and live programming and all of it streamed to the community. It was a rousing success, met with many kudos from the city!
Cablecast has been there hand in hand with us through our upgrade process, and we look forward to continuing to work with them in the future as we bring the rest of our systems up to date.
Thanks Michael – you guys have been great!
