Enabling Creative Teams. Driving IT Efficiencies. Steadfast Customer Support.

We are a nationwide media technology systems integrator covering all facets of the media life cycle.

Technology Design, Installation & Support

From capture through delivery, CHESA designs, builds, integrates, and supports media workflow solutions with industry-leading technologies to create highly-efficient systems that achieve our clients’ business objectives.

Media Asset Management

MAM has become an essential component for many facilities – touching every part of a project lifecycle from pre- and post-production to transcode, QC, distribution, remote proxy editing, and beyond.

Acquire & INGEST

Myriad factors come into play when designing an ingest workflow – such as live elements, Web conference sources, capture devices, transcoding, QC analysis, media orchestration, and active archive.

STORE & PROTECT

Storage has come a long way from the days of a simple, on-prem repository for your media. Still factors are bandwidth, scalability, features and remote capabilities.

EDITORIAL

From video editing, visual effects, animation and motion graphics to photography, audio editing, color-grading, and finishing, we have your app bases covered.

TRANSCODE & DELIVER

Whether it’s the creation of mezzanine files for editorial, crunching down rough cuts for review and approve, or QC of final deliverables – transcode is there, keeping your team moving forward.

ARCHIVE & REPURPOSE

More than anything, archiving is a process – not a one-time item you check off your to-do list. Not enriching and repurposing that archive, using your creations to their fullest potential, is a real dilemma.

We Listen, Reflect, Recommend

CHESA clients want a partner who helps them achieve success by listening to objectives, and carefully reflecting in the design, development and deployment of a robust, modern system for their organization. Studios, broadcasters, creative agencies, professional sports entities, post production houses, major media outlets, global brands, eSports outfits, federal agencies, museums and universities all have a similar goal: preparing for future demands and accomplishing their goals. We take time to talk each of our clients through solutions we propose and assessing the merits of different approaches.

Consulting Discovery Design

Consultation is at the heart of what we do at CHESA. We provide clients with detailed, nuanced, and real world-driven advice as we identify the best overall and most cost-effective approach for their organization. CHESA then creates an overall system design, based on our consulting.

Systems Integration

The specialized ecosystems required to support media workflows is why a Systems Integrator is a valued partner. CHESA not only understands the intricacies of media, but is also aligned with best of breed technology partners to deploy and support reference architectures to meet these unique demands.

CHESA Cloud Services

With the work-from-home reality, clients face a growing need to access media in new scenarios ranging from standalone hard drives, remote desktop, to Cloud. CHESA’s Cloud Services approach provides options from Hybrid Cloud, to 100% Public Cloud as well as CHESA’s own private Cloud hosted services.

Service Level Agreements

CHESA’s SLAs go beyond the “help desk” by providing the maintenance and support that are crucial to taking full advantage of your technology investments, powering your success by increasing the capacity of your team without expanding your headcount.
