First Sight Media announces 30th Anniversary

First Sight Media, the multi-award-winning production and streaming company, has revealed that it will be exactly 30 years old on November 16, 2023, and will be marking three decades of tireless innovation in video production and distribution for UK events, businesses, and universities, with a celebration event on the day.

Rich Belcher, managing director, First Sight Media, said, “This is a huge year for us, and we’re so excited to be able to share our history with the world! We want all our clients, friends, and colleagues in the event industry to save the date, November 16th, 2023, and join us for a celebration event in London to mark three decades of providing video and production services.

First Sight Media has always been an early adopter of the most promising, exciting, and new technologies, and was quick to see the potential of digital video. Since 1993, First Sight Media has worked across thousands of locations, completing hundreds of thousands of projects, and has captured millions of hours of video. Today, First Sight Media streams over 100 million hours of footage to audiences every year.

Belcher concluded, “It’s amazing to think how the world of video has changed since we started 30 years ago when video lived solely on VHS tapes. We’ve witnessed the rise of the internet and the world wide web, the creation of ‘the cloud’, the innovation of streaming technology, and the creation of giants like Youtube, Netflix, and now TikTok.  Mobile data speeds have increased to the point where billions watch videos on a device that lives in their pocket, capable of displaying 4K video. Video is truly all around us in a way that would have been hard to envisage in 1993. And First Sight Media has been there, all this time, learning and adopting each new industry development to better serve our customers with the best that technology has to offer.”
