What our clients say about us?
I've been lucky enough to work with Lyon Managed Services for a few years now. Amin and the team always offer amazing customer service, fast response times and plenty of patience when dealing with whatever kind of query I may have.
Over the last eight years they have provided all the needs of our expanding business, here in the UK and as well as in two overseas locations, in a very seamless and professional manner. Many a times they have very professionally and competently dealt with some very complex issues involving our virtual setup, Refinitive and Reuters platforms. We are always impressed by the depth of knowledge of their staff but especially the knowledge and experience of their founding partners whom are always promptly available.
We engaged with Lyon at a time when our server had crashed, and our previous IT had thrown in the towel. Unbeknown to them it was a behemoth of a job however they managed to restore everything back to normal within days. Since then we’ve been looked after by them regularly and can’t recommend them enough.
I'd like to thank all at Lyon for your work this year- if you'd told me 12 months ago that the entire office would be working remotely, I don't think I'd have believed it would have been possible, let alone relatively smooth and productive. So thank you for moving so swiftly to get us set up in March, and the support ever since. Please do pass on my thanks to Tom and the rest of the team.
It was obvious that we didn’t have the flexibility and reliability that was needed from an IT perspective to operate our business. Having grown to 70 users over the past couple of years we were left in a position to outsource our IT to a company that fully understood our requirements and provided us with the right tools to not to worry about IT. Lyon came recommended by our office manager and since then we’ve never looked back.

Media companies employ AI in content creation through neural network architectures like convolutional neural networks (CNNs) and recurrent neural networks (RNNs). Automated content tagging, facial recognition algorithms, and predictive analytics driven by machine learning models enhance the efficiency of content creation workflows, allowing for data-driven decision-making and personalised audience experiences.
Data backup in film and media production involves implementing distributed storage systems, utilising erasure coding for fault tolerance, and employing version control mechanisms. Advanced backup strategies, such as incremental-forever backups and deduplication, ensure the integrity and availability of intellectual property, protecting against data corruption and loss.
Cybersecurity is imperative in film and TV production due to the industry's reliance on complex digital ecosystems. Implementing advanced threat detection systems, encryption algorithms, and secure application programming interfaces (APIs) ensures the protection of intellectual property, preventing unauthorized access and mitigating the risks associated with the evolving cyber threat landscape.
Cloud computing revolutionizes post-production by offering scalable and resilient storage infrastructure. Integration of serverless computing and containerization technologies enhances agility, enabling seamless parallel processing of tasks. This empowers film professionals to access, manipulate, and collaborate on large media files efficiently, while orchestrating complex workflows through cloud-native architectures.
Advanced video editing software forms the cornerstone of modern film production, employing GPU-accelerated rendering, machine learning-driven content analysis, and non-linear editing techniques. Utilizing codecs such as REDCODE RAW and integrating with color grading solutions like HDR10+ ensures the creation of visually stunning films with precise control over every pixel.
IT support enhances the reliability of broadcast systems by implementing software-defined networking (SDN) solutions and redundant, fault-tolerant architectures. Leveraging network function virtualization (NFV) and automated failover mechanisms ensures continuous content delivery, minimizing downtime and latency for an uninterrupted viewer experience.
High-performance servers empower media and TV companies through the deployment of multi-node clusters, optimised for parallel processing and rendering tasks. Implementing data parallelism techniques and utilising high-speed interconnects, such as InfiniBand, significantly reduces data processing time, enabling real-time rendering and faster content delivery.
IT support facilitates the management of large media files by implementing hierarchical storage management (HSM) solutions and utilising network-attached storage (NAS) systems with high throughput capabilities. Employing content delivery strategies, such as edge caching and adaptive bitrate streaming, optimises file access and transfer speeds for efficient post-production workflows.
Staying updated on emerging technologies is vital for film and media companies to remain competitive. Integration of immersive technologies like virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), adoption of blockchain for secure content distribution, and exploration of quantum computing for complex simulations are crucial for pushing the boundaries of innovation and maintaining a technological edge in the industry.
Lyon Tech plays a crucial role in implementing immersive audio technologies in post-production by integrating advanced audio processing algorithms and spatial audio techniques. Leveraging high-performance computing clusters and dedicated audio processing units, IT specialists ensure the seamless integration of Dolby Atmos and other immersive audio formats. This enhances the post-production workflow, allowing professionals to create a more immersive and captivating auditory experience for viewers. Recent advancements in this area have shown a 30% increase in viewer engagement and satisfaction, showcasing the significant impact of IT support in pushing the boundaries of audio innovation in the industry.
