About GemStone Media Inc.
After more than 50 years of combined broadcast experience, Kent Kirby and George Birnbaum joined forces in 2005 to lead GemStone Media Inc. into the next phase of business success. George’s career experience in management and engineering coupled with Kent’s creative and editing expertise worked in tandem to provide clients a unique opportunity to get unmatched technical and creative services with just one contact.
Since then, GemStone has grown to utilize more than 80 of the best broadcast professionals in the area. But, the goal is still to provide clients with accessible, personal service. GemStone’s office staff is always available to clients from the early stage of a project until the final deliverable is completed.
George & Kent emphasize client relations, meeting deadlines, and staying on budget as the features than set GemStone apart from other area production houses. Most clients have been with GemStone from the start, and have come to rely on the company as consultants, producers, and project managers for their growing broadcast needs.
GemStone Media services include: long form television production, remote and/or studio shooting, post production editing, graphic creation, live sports and entertainment television, commercial and industrial production, closed captioning, transcoding, and duplication.
Message from the Owners
Thanks for taking the time to visit our website. When we started on our GemStone journey, it was just the two of us: a former station engineer and a former TV producer/editor. We gave each of our clients personalized service. They knew they could call us anytime with questions or concerns.
More than a decade later, we’re pleased to say GemStone has grown in technical capability, staff, and client list. But, we’re most proud of the fact that our clients still receive that personalized service, attention to detail, and quality service that we established in the very beginning. Sure, we’re in a high tech, fast paced business, but that doesn’t mean we won’t take the time to explain a process, tweak a script, or help you problem solve a technical issue for you. That’s what we do. That’s what makes GemStone unique.
We look forward to working with you to make your vision a reality for television, website, or industrial needs. Let’s get your story out of your head on onto the screen.
All the best,
Kent Kirby – President
George Birnbaum – Vice-President
