High-Tech & Top Talent Launch Texas Video & Post Into Third Decade

TVP Credits 20-Plus Years of Success to Acquiring the Latest Technology and Inspiring Superior Talent

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - October 24, 2007) - The Tonight Show's producers know the place. The World's Greatest Rock 'n Roll Band works with their people. MTV producers know their address, where they and two other international networks filled edit suites for a week during Super Bowl XXXVIII.

Clients looking for production and post-production powerhouses usually think of LA or New York, not Houston. But for 20 years, TVP has kept the concept of "Hollywood in Houston" thriving on a stage known more for its medical and oil patch than for advertising, film or video production.

This fall, veteran director Jack Hattingh leads TVP into its third decade -- an accomplishment accentuated by the company's many prestigious national and international awards. From broadcast commercial production, real-time film transfer, colorists around the globe, 3D special effects and the latest digital editing to corporate & music videos, internet content, 5.1 surround sound design, recording and mixing, TVP offers the full package.

"Our approach has always been customer-focused. We're much more than a film and video production house; we're a rich resource of technical knowledge and creativity for our clients," says Hattingh. "We invest heavily in leading-edge gear, and are dedicated to attracting and keeping top-flight talent, to leverage that technology. This strategy keeps us versatile and nimble, enabling us to offer our clients a variety of communication solutions."

TVP has weathered up and down cycles in the local economy that were strong enough to put several Houston facilities on the cutting room floor. With Houston's only High-Definition 2K digital production and post facility, fully integrated stage, audio services for original music composition, recording, mixing and sound design and the latest graphics and editing technologies, TVP is able to attract regional and national advertising agencies, Fortune 500 companies and entertainment powerhouses such as "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

"During the extremely hectic week of the Super Bowl in Houston, the staff at TVP accommodated all of our production needs from digital tape transfers to fiber feeds between Houston and our Burbank studios," said Tom Patino, Production Manager for "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." "Their facilities and equipment are first-rate, a surprising find outside of LA or New York. We'd love the opportunity to go back to Houston -- just to work with the pros at TVP."

Ad agencies and the entertainment industry use TVP's expertise to create dazzling and compelling content, and Hattingh is developing a lucrative niche in the area of corporate communications, where TVP brings its assets to bear in a highly resourceful way.

"When you produce a corporate video, whether for internal or external audiences, you're putting your brand out there in a non-traditional sense," explains Hattingh. "Corporate work must be creative, and at the same time, true to the company's brand. This can be a challenge at times, but it doesn't mean you can't have a little fun with it, when appropriate, and still deliver an effective and powerful product."

Marshall Cohen, Director of Brand Management for ConocoPhillips Lubricants, says, "TVP really took the time to understand our business, specifically the goals and objectives for our National Marketer Conference. This is one of our most strategic customer events, and TVP brought a fresh approach to complex and sometimes mundane subject matter. Through video and music woven with product imagery and client testimonials, TVP crafted a truly entertaining program that drove key messages home to our customers."

To mark its 20-year milestone, TVP will host a variety of celebratory events over the next few months at its studios near the South Loop. Most notably, TVP will feature the unveiling of the company's newest asset -- a Surround Sound design studio packed with the latest hardware and software for capturing and editing flawless audio recordings of all kinds. "Our latest investment is already paying off," says Hattingh, "and by staying ahead of the curve in both technology and talent, we will keep giving our clients nothing but the best, for many years to come."
