As many of you know, K-House has several offices around the world, including the U.S. office in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; our EU office in Portsmouth, England; and, our African office in Benoni, South Africa. In 2010 we opened our South Pacific office in New Zealand. We are now in the process of consolidating all of our multimedia recording, editing, and production facilities (from the U.S. and Portsmouth, U.K.) to New Zealand.
We have acquired an ongoing business and property in the middle of the North Island of New Zealand, The River Lodge, which boasts a 30 year history as a unique conference center known for intimate, sole-use groups, corporate management retreats, weddings, et al. It was purchased in April 2010, and now supplements its previous usage with invitational conferences and international speakers which also result in proprietary branded electronic publications, high definition video products, and worldwide video teleconferencing. The River Lodge has installed a state-of-the-art Microwave link to the New Zealand internet backbone which opens up a variety of high-tech capabilities such as;
- Reliable, high speed internet for all venue attendees
- Video conferencing support
- Real-time video streaming for broadcasting events from the River Lodge worldwide through the internet; and
- Impressive data upload and down-load facilities.
The new facilities of Lyonshead Media also permit, on-site filming, editing and production of high definition DVDs of any presentations for visitors as they occur. This service can also include a rapid turn-around time DVD so the conference attendees leave with a DVD copy of the presentation they have just received. This can be uniquely effective to announce new products, organizational changes, or simply instruction on complex or sensitive matters.
The previous activities are now supplemented with the special conferences promoted for "40 people for 40 hours to gain a 20/20 insight" on various popular (specialized) topics. The resulting video recordings also yield branded, proprietary aftermarket DVD titles.
