Unbelievable support. A big thank you from the team

Old friends and clients flock to support Origin as it gathers pace

Origin has already grown fast since its launch and the future looks bright. But while it’s still early days for our exciting new company, we believe it’s never too soon to send out a heartfelt thanks.

So, thank you for all the amazing support we’ve already received. Thank you too for the way in which old and new friends and clients alike have encouraged us all the way. We couldn’t have done it without you.

‘I’ve been in the industry for around 25 years and have worked with some great people and companies, many of whom I am proud to be able to call friends. I started the company just four months ago but have already seen the power that comes with proper relationships,’ says Origin founder Liam Wife.

‘I have had incredible support from former colleagues, that I’m excited to say are joining me on the journey and without whom I may never have done this - as well as from clients and friends that I have worked with.’

‘I have known some people for just a few months, others for years, but no matter how long, their support since my initial idea for Origin has been outstanding.’

The team at Origin are truly humbled by the lengths some of our clients have gone to - with a special shout out to Dega and The Farm. We are in awe of the excitement and passion with which our friends have supported us.

Origin has grown quickly since start up and has exciting times ahead.  The business may be future-focussed and modern, but it’s founded on good-old fashioned relationship-building with the people that matter – our friends and clients.

‘I am relishing the feeling of enthusiasm and passion – not only my own but in the team and our customers. Everybody is working hard. It feels as if we have all been given a new lease of life thanks to this exciting new project. I’m looking forward to what the future holds,’ says Liam.

Join us to celebrate and support Earth Day 2022!
#InvestInOurPlanet

Earth Day is about awareness and action to combat our greatest threat, climate change. From individuals and businesses to organisations and governments, we need to keep making positive changes and we need to do it faster than we ever have before.

When Origin was first launched, we asked our team what was important to them personally, and without fail each and every person highlighted the importance of doing what was right when it came to the environment.

After considerable internal discussion and with the help of external consultancy we undertook a detailed review of our business and how we could deliver an organisation which not only supported and embraced change, but actively encouraged it.

With a strong set of sustainability and environmental policies in place covering everything from waste management and transport to utility consumption and supplier review, we have now implemented “project impact” planning as part of our review when tendering for new work. Not only does this ensure that we are adhering to our commitments, but it helps highlight areas where our clients can support change and best practices.

We believe that together we can make change, but it’s not just today, its every day.

Virtual Success for PMZ on new Reality Show
Virtual Success for PMZ on new Reality Show

What do you do when you’re 1.6 KM up a mountain in the Italian Alps, and your client requests another IPDirector workstation?

Traditionally, this kind of request kick-starts a chain reaction. Grab the kit off of the shelf back at base, running it up or wiping it down, sorting out information for a carnet, booking a courier, and then waiting for the kit to arrive… and that’s if there are even any in stock on the shelves.

However with the new PMZ virtualisation platform from EVS, I was able to deploy a new virtual workstation within minutes of the request coming in from our client. With PCoIP agent installed on a spare PC, all that was needed was a quick phone call to EVS support for a new set of licenses to cover the remaining length of the job.

Of course, virtualisation is not new technology but the application of it in the Broadcast and Film industry most definitely is. We’re often led by technology suppliers qualifying hardware and workflows, so that we have rock solid solutions out on location and in studios. Now that we have a fully qualified solution from EVS, it opens up a whole new selection of Broadcast solutions.

We’ve been using the new PMZ platform to keep “rack real estate” down, with zero impact on performance on many of our larger scale jobs for the past year, but this is the first time that the flexibility to spin up a new instance has been the desired feature.
