About Global Resort Media

Learn more about Global Resort Media, Advanced Media, and how it works.

Who we are...

We are professional videographers, photographers, video editors, web developers, and media consultants. What makes us unique and valuable is that we are also skiers, snowboarders, surfers, climbers, global explorers, and even golfers. We have worked both locally and in distant areas such as Europe and western Canada as well as in the remote mountainous regions of the Arctic, Europe, and even the United States. We understand the unique requirements of resort areas and are well prepared to help  maximize their recognition and marketing focus within the industry.

What we do...

We are an Advanced Media and New Media development and marketing organization working with resort areas and their related businesses to advance the use of new media in marketing, resort promotions and special events, and new methods of creating targeted customer products and services.

We specialize in on-line media and promotional and historical video as well as individual video creation for families and athletes. We also provide video services to the real estate marketing area. With the continued growth of global high-speed converged networks we are able to provide globally accessible media and marketing solutions tailored to the unique requirements and localization of each area.

We are also members of the Advanced Media Committee of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) and we have judged the Technology & Engineering Emmy™ Awards. We are also inaugural members of the National Academy of Media Arts and Sciences (NAMAS) engaged in promoting new media integration and market education.

What is Advanced Media and New Media?

The underlying concept of both disciplines is that of convergence. This includes the convergence of traditional and new methods of delivery but more importantly the convergence of new and existing digital technologies including Internet, wireless, mobile technologies, computing and television.

The following technologies are well established in the area of New Media:

  • Streaming Media - video, audio, and multimedia
  • Social Media Marketing -Facebook, Twitter, and more...
  • Interactive web site development
  • Video and virtual worlds as they impact marketing and public relations
  • Multimedia DVDs and CD-ROMs
  • Web sites including digital brochureware and on-line video
  • Blogs, video blogs, and wikis
  • Electronic kiosks
  • Interactive television
  • Mobile devices
  • Podcasting
  • Mashups (web application hybrid)
  • Graphical User Interfaces

Advanced Media includes all of the above and more. Emerging technology and extraordinary use of ordinary technologies are announced everyday. There are more ways then ever before to get connected:

  • Interactive Television and networked applications
  • Electronic program guides and user interfaces
  • HDTV
  • Digital television (SD)
  • Cell phones (3G), PDA’s, and personal computers
  • TiVo and networked PVR devices
  • Broadband, Cable, and Addressable Advertising
  • Time-shifted TV and much, much more.

If it displays images and plays sound and it’s new, it’s Advanced Media! As emerging technologies converge to create new applications we will continue to be in the forefront of technology applications.

Where we are...

We are locally based in Western New York region of the United States and serve the resort areas in our region.
We also have partners in Europe, the western United States, Canada, and even in China. Basically, through the application of advanced technologies and communication systems we can be virtually anywhere on the globe.
For the 2011-2012 Winter season we will have a physical location in Ellicottville, NY at Holiday Valley Resort.
