Telson faces the coronavirus-related crisis at 100% of its operational capacity
Thanks to a comprehensive contingency and teleworking plan, the MEDIAPRO Group company has quickly adapted to the new situation to provide prompt and efficient services

Telson, the post-production company of the MEDIAPRO Group, maintains full operational capacity in its four service areas: audio and video post-production for drama; audio and video post-production for advertising; corporate audiovisual production; and TV channel broadcasting, monitoring and quality control.

The planning and subsequent execution of a comprehensive contingency plan, outlined more than a month ago and gradually implemented in recent weeks, has allowed the company to currently maintain 100% of its work and even provide a prompt and effective response to the new needs of clients, in response to the current situation.

Almost all of Telson's employees currently operate from their homes, remotely or locally, using encrypted media, thanks to the painstaking work of the company's engineering and IT areas, in collaboration with Unitecnic, the broadcast engineering division of the MEDIAPRO Group. In addition, the adoption of security measures and reinforcing the cleaning, disinfection and sanitation of the two buildings owned by Telson in Calle Alcalá in Madrid make all the facilities fully operational to finish any work that cannot be completed remotely, thus enabling clients such as ONCE and "El Hormiguero" to continue producing their programs, albeit on a smaller scale.

The contingency plan adopted by Telson has allowed the company to maintain the schedule of its drama department, which delivers audio, color, 3D and VFX post-production and mastering for series produced by THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO, including "The Head" , "Por H o por B", "Nasdrovia" and "The Ministry of Time"; television shows such as "Órbita Laika"; and films including "Hasta el cielo" (by Vaca Films, directed by Daniel Calparsoro) and "El año de la furia" (by Aliwood, directed by Rafa Russo). The same is true for its advertising division, where it continues to meet the needs of all its clients, including ONCE, Telefónica, Acciona, Johnson & Johnson, L'Orèal, and the Mahou Group.

Telson also performed a seamless transition of its playout, monitoring and quality control services of all its channel customers, incident free: Disney, Viacom, Vodafone, DKISS and TEN. In addition, the company is meeting delivery deadlines in the provision of audiovisual content for the host country's pavilion at the Expo 2020 Dubai, while it continues to adapt its audiovisual content logistics services for Renfe, responding daily to the progressive service level as requested by the company.

Fighting back against the stream of bad news, a growing movement of recognition for the work that people are doing to help is gaining ground.

With the campaign, LaLiga sets out to say thanks to all the people who are giving their all at work to help save lives. And once again “No es fútbol. Es LaLiga” becomes even more important and now more than ever is the time to showcase the true values of the brand.
