It all began more than 25 years ago, when the Operations Manager at KPIX decided to move beyond broadcast. Or in other words, ‘Beyond Pix.’
The first office opened at 950 Battery Street, in the heart of San Francisco’s ‘Media Gulch’ district, where the Beyond Pix corporate offices still reside today. Originally offering non-linear editing and production, the company began producing high-end corporate videos for global brands.
Quickly expanding, Beyond Pix built live-insert studios, which continue today as the West Coast’s premier independent news bureau. The Beyond Pix Broadcast Center still operates as a go-to location for CNBC, Aljeezera, the BBC and many others. In addition, companies around the world use the Broadcast Center for SMT’s, crisis communications, media training, and other live-broadcast events.
With the addition of a Creative Services Department, extensive grip & lighting, San Francisco’s largest sound stage, a full production fleet, 8 edit suites, 2D/3D graphics, audio production & post, mobile-multi-cam packages, and more… Beyond Pix has become the Bay Area’s biggest full-service production company.
While original clients, such as Infoseek, Pets.com, Netscape, and ZZZ, hit their zenith then faded away, Beyond Pix remains a vital part of Northern California’s production landscape. Now working with clients such as Apple, Chevron, Safeway, Francis Ford Coppola, Google, a plethora of ad and PR agencies, and hundreds of other entities, Beyond pix remains loyal to our San Francisco community by working with student groups and other nonprofits on many pro bono projects.
We like to chalk up Beyond Pix’s longevity to our creative passion, obsession with innovtation, technical excellence, and a go-the-extra-mile attitude… but in reality, it’s because we just can’t stop having a blast doing what we do.
