Aboriginal Health Television Launch (AHTV)

GEO Media interactive (GMi) is proud to have been able to assist in the national launch of the Aboriginal Health Television (AHTV) network last week.

AHTV is the world’s first Indigenous exclusively health-focussed television network and delivers important health messages and culturally relevant content through Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations across Australia.

AHTVs content is developed in partnership with local Aboriginal health services and producers who specialise in Indigenous content to ensure it is culturally relevant and engaging for audiences.

GMi was on hand to record the launch and help get the story out to the media. The story was picked up and reported on by over 20 media outlets here in Australia and overseas. The launch of AHTV was at the South West Aboriginal Medical Service (SWAMS) located here in Bunbury, WA.

DFES and Peaceful Bay the GMi Way!

Last Friday saw GMi taking a quick trip down to Peaceful Bay in our states beautiful Great Southern Region to do a shoot for the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES).

 

The shoot was about recognizing the efforts of the Peaceful Bay Sea Rescue Group in a dramatic sea rescue operation over two days that they performed earlier in the year. The shoot was a lot of fun and Mark is looking forward to getting back into the both the Great Southern and the Southwest to further expand our library of drone vision!

Carl is off to the International Broadcast Convention (IBC) again!

The 2017 International Broadcast Convention (IBC 2017) is on again in Amsterdam and Carl will be once more jetting off to attend (much to Mark and Marks envy). IBC provides an opportunity for manufacturers to showcase their latest offerings in acquisition, post, storage, and broadcast media platforms.

From an production perspective, we have been creating and delivering UHD/4K content for nearly 4 years. In that time we built new 4k edit suites, acquired new 4k cameras, and a new 4k drone. We are not going to stop there we have our eyes on even more 4k cameras, and Carl will be looking at all the latest offerings from Sony, Panasonic, Canon, and Blackmagic Design.

New areas we are expanding into are 360video and Virtual Reality acquisition and continuing our push in delivering custom LMS content. Carl will be keeping a close eye out for IBC vendors in these fields and both the Marks are keen to see what 360 gear he looks at.

Stay tuned when Carl returns we will find out what he learned at IBC 2017!
