About Us

What we do

At Ripcord Designs we are passionate about television.  Whether you are streaming a local event online or covering global news, we believe your creativity should never be limited by the tools you use.  All of our broadcast equipment is designed with one goal in mind: to enable the highest quality video production without breaking the bank.

We are launching with a range of HD broadcast converters that should be in everyone’s toolbox, and we will be expanding the range over the coming months including our first Ultra HD products.

We are also very excited by some innovative new broadcast equipment that we currently have in development and will be announcing later in the year.  Sign up for our newsletter and be the first to hear about all the new developments at Ripcord Designs.


Who we are

The company was started by three friends who together have over 50 years of experience designing video and audio products used by broadcasters all over the world. We have also worked on hundreds of live productions, so we understand how broadcast equipment is used in the real world.
