Tech solutions

Take 1 prides itself in staying at the cutting edge of today’s ever changing broadcast technology.  We talk regularly to our customers, to find out what technical and workflow challenges they are facing, and use this feedback to continuously develop our service offerings.

We are constantly innovating, and are pleased to be able to offer not only a premium transcription service, but also technical solutions which enable our service to fit seamlessly into our clients’ workflows.

“No complaints with Take 1.  You’re my preferred service for bulk series. The upload option is easy and scripts are delivered ahead of time, so I don’t need to chase in between - which during delivery is the last thing you want to be doing!”

Raise the Roof


Our T1000 server is turning heads in the post production sector.

  • It is a 1U rack server, so it won’t take up much space in your machine room.
  • Easy-to-use interface. Just drag and drop files into Overnight, 2 day or 3 day turnaround hot folders.
  • Automatically uploads files to Take 1 for immediate transcription.
  • Suits busy post production offices, with high volumes of interview/OTF content to process

Integrates with your workflow

Our T1000 has a proven track record in high-volume post production environments. It can process media generated from Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro, Compressor, MOG, XDCAM MXF proxies and more…

Outsourced typing resource

The T1000 is integrated seamlessly with our scalable typing pool, plugging you directly in to Take 1’s transcription workforce. It’s like having 200 typists available when & where you need them.

H.264 compression

Proxy files generated by the T1000 are H.264 MP4, and therefore don’t use up too much of your bandwidth while they are uploading.

Secure file movement

Files are encrypted and transmitted securely to our servers via SFTP, so there’s no danger of them going astray.

We don’t want your content ending up on YouTube any more than you do!

Intuitive interface

The user interface is very easy to use. Simply drag files into your turnaround folder of choice, and enter email addresses for your team members.

Easy import into your workflow

Completed transcripts are delivered back to you via email in either Word, TXT or XML format for simple import back into your workflow. Scriptsync & Pilotware compatible script formats are also available.
