Our Proven Process

We approach each project request with a patient and thorough evaluation of the Client and their needs. This helps ensure that we set up the workflows to get the program to its end destinations on time and looking the absolute best. It’s a process that we have established and implemented for 20 years with proven success.

“Aberdeen has done an amazing job at updating our broadcast to the current generation. They take one video, do their magic, and send to our three stations with no issues or hiccups. They even added one of our stations in Ecuador that they never transmitted to before.”
