We are Broadcast Video and Internet Experts
For more than twenty years we have been in the business of filming for professional live and prerecorded broadcasting for a local television station. We continue to cover on-location and studio shoots from our four broadcast studios in California, Texas and now Alaska. In the 1990s we acquired the personnel and skills to allow us to expand our capabilities to offer high quality video over the Internet. Beginning with the first live Internet broadcast of the Daytona 500 in 1996 we have been leaders in helping our clients take advantage of the many benefits of Internet Video broadcasting. We have been leading the expansion of Internet broadcasting in the region for more than 12 years and we are always staying current with video equipment and trends. We count many commercial and government agencies as satisfied clients. In service to California, Nevada, Alaska and Texas government and commercial customers, we have a wide array of clients who take advantage of our skills and capabilities. We have delivered broadcasts and short form videos including documentaries for more than 200 different California, Texas Alaska and Nevada State agencies. Many of these are based upon multi-year contracts. Some require many broadcasts per client per month or year from a variety of locations throughout the USA. We are proud to be your Video production and webcasting resource.
Meet our Staff of Professionals
We would enjoy having you and your staff come by and visit with us. We work all week long sometimes late into the evening and on weekends as well, but we can set aside to for a tour and also to understand your event or project requirements better. We can take you through the production areas, sound stage, control rooms, editing rooms and broadcast transmission areas. Broadcast studios are fun and very informative places to visit. If you are considering a studio shoot or a live broadcast from our studios or anywhere in the United States, it is important that you understand what our sound stage and production facilities can support as much as it is important for us to understand what you want to accomplish with your video production. If you would like to storyboard a short form video, we have the script writers and producers to put together a first class piece for your organization. Give us a call we would be happy to arrange a tour.
