Frequently Asked Questions

Click on a question below for more information

When do I need to book?

It’s always best to book as soon as possible. We don’t hold equipment based on quotations and get very busy near the end of school terms.

Are cables with your ISDN codec hire service?

Yes, we supply power supplies, a CAT5 cable and short microphone cables. However if you require longer cables, please let us know.

When will the equipment be delivered and collected?

Our couriers work Monday to Friday only. Your equipment will be delivered on the working day before and collected on the working day after between 9am and 4pm. Unfortunately we can’t give more accurate times.

However if you provide us with your mobile number you should receive a text with a 2 hour time window on the morning of delivery.

Will you come and set up the equipment up for us?

In certain circumstances, we can provide a technician. Contact us for details. However we are a “dry hire” company, meaning we usually supply the equipment by courier and leave you to set it up. We send you a simple guide for how to do this and supply 24 hour telephone support.

How do pay for my booking?

We take payment by BACS or with a card online or over the phone. We accept all cards, except American Express. In addition, for certain customers, we offer 30 day payment terms (with a purchase order).

Who do you hire to?

We provide ISDN codec hire to the whole of the UK. Our hire clients include:

BBC (Eurovision Commentary), U-Switch, AXA Insurance, The Premier League, Scottish Parliament, UK Water, BBC Local Stations, Health and Safety Executive, Motor Insurers’ Bureau, British Safety Council, Internet Watch Foundation, The Children’s Society, Sport England, Drinkaware, Campaign for Real Ale, Ideal Home Show

Which ISDN codec is best?

There are many different formats of ISDN: MPEG Layer 2, MPEG Layer 3, G722, APT-X and AAC are just a few. Before hiring make sure you know which format you need, and check with the engineer at the other end to make sure they can also work with the format you’re using.

Each unit has advantages and disadvantages for different applications. We can advise on which unit would be best for your purposes, provide line tests and telephone support.

Can I use a normal telephone line? What type of line do I need?

Before hiring an ISDN codec please ensure that you have an appropriate ISDN 2e line installed, and configured for broadcast use. This equipment will not work on a standard telephone line or over the internet. ISDN30 will not work and you’re unlikely to get a connection if your ISDN line passes through an internal telephone exchange.

Do you provide a testing service for your ISDN codec hire customers?

We can usually assist, if our own studio is free. However we can also provide you with an ISDN test number which provides an audio loopback, to verify that your ISDN system is set up correctly.
