Vortex Communications has been supplying cost-effective solutions to broadcast and professional AV users since 1987.

Many of our products are Eurocard-based which means apart from standard versions, we can provide custom configurations to meet specific requirements from standard modules. Products have been developed to exceed current broadcast specifications and are designed and built to the highest standards with a proven reliability record.

Vortex Communications is open from 9:00 to 17:30 (15:00 Fridays) British Standard Time. Enquiries sent to info@vtx.co.uk will be processed expediently by a member of our team and returned to you within 24 hours. Alternatively click here to contact us or to register your interest.
