Global Access caters for our corporate clients with our own broadcast facilities incorporating three in-house studios with HD capabilities. We also have a mobile production unit, enabling you as a client to do a live or pre-recorded video shoot from your offices or event. With corporate broadcasting there is great value in communicating a clear and concise message to staff and other stakeholders in a business. Global Access makes this possible with our own private television channel on DStv channel 901, giving you access to anywhere in Southern Africa. This enables you, the client, to broadcast to your targeted audience on a secure, private network. To further enhance the capabilities of reaching your clients, video can also be sent via Web streaming as well as video to mobile phone distribution. Our creative graphics department will also assist in creating graphical content to complement your productions or broadcasts.
Our Digital Signage and Broadcasting divisions combined distribute content to more than 55 000 screens on a daily basis, making this one of the largest media networks in the country, with a possible distribution capacity of more than 5 million receiver devices via the DStv platform. Our head office operates from Johannesburg CBD, with a national footprint of highly skilled staff members engaging with our clients' right across Southern Africa.
Over the years the Global Access broadcasting studios have facilitated many well-known productions and have been used to record and broadcast a host of projects including local and international soaps, game shows, sitcoms, dramas, corporate communications and events.
Some of the productions filmed in our studios are:
- ‘Sam Sokololo’, filmed by Black Brain Productions
- ‘Skwizas’, filmed by Lilian Dube Productions
And currently Burnt Onion is busy filming season 2 of ‘My Perfect Family’ in our largest studio.
With 3 studios fully equipped with lighting grids and lights, fully air-conditioned and soundproof, and given our downtown location we are ideally located for accessing large and regular audiences. The studio sizes range from 234 square meters to 564 square meters and each have its own green room, make up room, crew rooms and production offices.
Our studios are perfect for green screen shoots, but can also facilitate built sets as was done for 7 Films when they shot the new Cell C adverts recently. Our studios are also large enough to accommodate game shows were an audience is required, such as the game show for Sasko we facilitated for Paradox Films.
Engineering support and crew can be provided for as required. We are able to tailor both our equipment and services to suit client requirements.
