Decades of hard work, research, and accumulated experience have brought us to the cutting edge of high quality video production. While at present, we create most videos in multi-camera 4K to meet our clients’ high expectations, we also shoot 5K HFR and, on occasion, 6K and 8K video.
In addition to managing five Manhattan green screen sound stages, we shoot commercials, feature films, music videos, children’s series, and PSA’s. On occasion we shoot with IMAX cameras. We have shot on location in over eighty-five countries.
We are one of the leading WebCasting production teams on the East Coast.
Our five TriCasters and LiveStream FlyPack video streaming production rigs are manned by our highly experienced, NewTek certified operators. For years, we have been broadcasting the highest rated program on Mark Cuban’s Axis TV, Live from The Gotham Comedy Club. It airs every Thursday night.
Our Chelsea North midtown WebCasting facility boasts a state-of-the-art TriCaster 8000 with a 1 GB fiber line directly to the nearby Google Building where it joins the web hub or uplinks the feed to any satellite for worldwide transmission. Additionally, this is one of the very few facilities in NYC to feature the latest iteration of the amazing new Brainstorm Technology.
If your WebCast is needed in an environment lacking internet, that’s no problem. We have 4G bonded cellular gear to connect to the web when all else fails.
We do hassle-free NYC aerial video.
Our drone fleet, which can carry fully rigged RED and Alexa cameras are flown by experienced camera operators who are licensed pilots; all of our NYC aerial video and photography is not only beautifully shot but also completely legal (and therefore hassle-free for our clients).
