The wine country and video production don’t necessarily sound like they go together, but don’t tell that to CAV Media. CAV Media is a high definition video production center headquartered in beautiful Napa. This wasn’t always the case and as owner founder Bob Burton explains when he founded the company in 1986 he had studios in San Francisco and then Emeryville. But a growing client base and the desire to get out of the confines of the city led him to move the facility up north in 1995. In 2010 thanks to an expanding client base in the wine country and throughout the entire Bay Area they moved to their current location, giving them a bit more room. In the new space they can offer in house green screen shooting, and continue to offer a variety of services. In addition to full service soup to nuts production they are also equipped to do film to tape and tape to tape transfers. They have a variety of formats, making it possible to deal with material from the past. As time goes on it becomes imperative that you get your valued content on older media into a modern format, and CAV can help facilitate this process. They also have duplication services, blu-ray and dvd authoring, custom package design and printing.
Over the years CAV camera crews have captured images on the land, over and under the sea, in the air, and from live events, to wine caves and more. They have the flexibility to capture simple talking heads to complex scenes with aerial shots, jibs and cranes and more. They have pretty much done it all. A partial list of what they’ve done includes;
Internet Training and Marketing
Safety and Training Videos
Live Performing Arts
B Roll Footage Packages
Even though they are a full service company they do offer their services to other production companies. Being located up North, they can offer a convenient alternative for companies that might have to service their own clients a bit north of the City. Some of these services include:
Voice Over Recording Booth
HD Camera Packages
Multi track recording
Script Development and writing
Computer Graphics and animation
Digital Editing in HD
The Bay Area is more than just San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose. The fact that CAV has been able to establish a full service company in Napa is of benefit to the larger community. So when you find yourself thinking wine country think CAV. Bob Burton has been a part of the local community for many years, he and his team bring their years of experience to each and every project.
