Blomeley Media Solutions
Blomeley Media Solutions (the production services element)
Today’s proliferation of media gathering and creation technologies, and the exponential growth of delivery/distribution capabilities has subsequently created a range of challenges and sometimes problems for clients looking to take advantage of this new market era. As noted in the Blomeley Media Solutions section of this website our idea of being a solutions provider is a hybrid of the traditonal software type of ‘software solutions provider’ (delivering a product or widget that fixes or fulfills a need) and a television or event producer that has the flexibilty to draw from several resources to creatively deliver a program (audio/video/graphics/story etc) that reaches and holds an audience.
More often than not, we are required to create any number of hard products or services: i.e. software, applications and/or web sites, video, audio, graphics, and technology. The Blomeley production team has the skills and resources to meet all of these needs. Some clients have certain internal resources and capabilities but still need our services for hire, while others want a full solution.
We offer ‘idea to delivery’ services and individualized services.
