What does CNTV do?
CNTV produces customized digital video and dynamic content to help create one-of-a-kind events. We can also help you generate revenue, enhance your online and on-site experience, and provide year-round engagement with your audience.

Video speaks straight to the customer, it grabs their attention and succinctly delivers your message.

They are experts in content and project management and working under extreme deadlines. Behind the camera is a team of video associates who are trained to bring stories to life through dynamic footage and creative editing techniques. Our talented designers add the “wow factor” by creating customized graphics to showcase your company or organization’s brand.
Can I afford CNTV?
Absolutely. We offer several standard packages, but we’re also happy to customize a project to fit your budget needs and requirements. We can also help you find sponsorships that can drastically cut costs and even make you a profit.
Who owns the videos?
You do. CNTV also stores the raw footage in our archive system for the next three years and can provide a copy for a nominal fee.
What’s the turnaround time for my videos?
Give us a deadline and we’ll meet it. We shoot, edit and deliver your content the same day as the event. Our clients also trust us with monthly videos and projects that start and finish in a matter of days.
Where is my video played?
There are a variety of options, but the most common are:
Social media channels
In session rooms
On the trade show floor
On TVs inside attendee hotel rooms & hotel lobbies
On TVs inside shuttle buses
Online, your reach is potentially limitless. Your video can be uploaded to:
Your event website
Your event mobile app
Your company or organization’s YouTube Channel
A custom event microsite
How much time will my staff have to dedicate to this?
As much or as little time as you want. We’ll need your input before the event, along with items such as a logo for graphics, but a dedicated content manager will oversee all planning, production and distribution of your videos. On-site, a streamlined content approval process makes it easy for staff to focus their attention on running the event.h.
Are there other expenses?
Most expenses are scalable. For example, you can distribute your content through free channels, like YouTube, low-cost options like hotel monitors, or you can go as big as renting the convention center jumbotron. Other marketing costs like tent cards or digital advertising (not provided by CNTV) vary in price.
What is the lead time?
Well prior to COVID, we were requesting 60 days before an event to commission CNTV, but now, if you want us at your event, we'll be there - even if it's tomorrow!
