Webcasts

Webcasting into March Madness

It's been a great start of the year with our webcasting service. We've traveled to Greensboro and Charlotte, NC and San Francisco, CA for out of state client projects, with several others originating here in Atlanta.

We can provide cameras, microphones, PA speakers, lighting, phone patches, encoders and recorders and most anything else a client needs to successfully produce a webcast.

Walking in Memphis

We recently had the opportunity to travel to Memphis, TN for a webcast, originating from the historic Peabody Hotel. We had an afternoon free before we started, so naturally, we had to experience a little bit of Memphis:

Atlanta Video Production moves into new office and studio space

It's official! We've completed our move to our new location on Peachtree Road! This space, about 5 miles north of Atlanta's Buckhead district, offers us a great space to merge our companies and provide clients a convenient location to both I-285 and I-85.

Atlanta Video Production's new studio announced

Forrester Media's recently completed merger with 4 Tay Video is leading us to a new name and a new home. We'll soon be doing business as Atlanta Video Production, a 4 Tay Video Company. Long ago, Mike Forrester secured the URL www.atlantavideoproduction.com and now is the time to use it! We've just launched a placeholder page for the new site and will build out the entire site in the coming weeks.

Our new building features a covered entry  and numerous amenities.

Atlanta Video Production will also be moving to a new home on north Peachtree Road in Atlanta. Renovations are underway to reconfigure office space and transform a portion of the building into a sound-proof studio. The 1600sf studio will included a dedicated 800sf green screen wall with floor cyc. The green screen area can be divided from the rest of the studio that will include set and interview areas. A make-up station, client area, kitchen, conference room, common areas, covered entrance and ample parking will compliment our new facility.

Our facility will have dedicated network connectivity allowing live webcasts to originate from the studio.

A portion of the building houses an existing tenant with the remainder available for lease to companies seeking a desirable address, convenient access to I-285 and MARTA as well access to other creative companies and our studio. We anticipate completion of the renovations in late June or early July with move-in to follow. In the interim, we continue to work at our 2250 N. Druid Hills Road office.

We are excited to offer our new facilities and capabilities to the Atlanta market. If we can be of assistance, please don't hesitate to call. We can be reached at 770-226-9250, or email us at solutions@forrestermedia.com.


On the road again

Every so often, I enjoy looking back at where I've traveled for client projects. It's always surprises me how many cities I've visited, interesting people I've met and projects I've worked on in the past year.

I'm often asked if we film productions outside the Metro Atlanta area. I can answer that question with a definitive 'yes!' In fact, most of our gear lives in hard-side travel cases, so whether we're traveling across town or across the country, it arrives safely and ready for action.

Though we rarely work outside the USA (Hamilton, Bermuda is my only non-US city this year), I have a Passport and more importantly, a TSA Precheck number to skip those pesky security lines.

Each red pin indicates a city we have visited for a shoot in the past year.

I enjoy travel - despite the occasional hiccup encountered some days. You could even say travel is in my blood. In my corporate life, I worked for Amtrak. That job involved a lot of travel - primarily between New York City, Washington, DC and Miami, FL.

It's not quite the same hectic travel schedule today, but early 2014 had me racking up a dozen Delta flights (24 segments) in a four month time frame. I'll mention that Bermuda in February is not a bad destination!

Now that Labor Day 2014 is behind us, travel is once again right around the corner. See you at the airport!
