Efficient Marketing

Satellite Media Tours

If you’re not familiar with this public relations and marketing service, a satellite media tour (SMT) is a technique used by corporations to allow an expert of their choice to interview with local television news broadcasts for live interactions - with the goal of getting a specific message delivered across many markets with local relevance. An SMT can target specific geographic regions or a large national audience. It is possible to reach millions of viewers in markets across the country in just a short amount of time.This marketing approach can be very cost-effective and attention-grabbing.

MediaOne's SMT productions are offered for corporations, associations, government agencies, foundations, and nonprofit clients through their PR agencies. MediaOne is not a PR agency, but we provide technical and production support for PR agencies throughout the Bay Area and beyond to support their clients in delivering SMTs.

MediaOne is the only Bay Area SMT production company that has been set up to deliver SMTs at any time - without any changes in studio or equipment - so we are always ready, whether your SMT is broadcast from our studio or a remote location.  You can be confident that, while your SMT is in process, streamlined engineering allows our broadcast team to get your valuable content on the air around the world as fast as possible.

Our SMT production experts offer full support throughout your satellite media tour. We act as a part of the team and can help with set design and layout, studio booking, and onsite logistics to support your PR agency. Additionally, we offer real-time output so that you can conclude your SMT and leave our studios with all your interviews in-hand and ready for you to promote.

Leveraging The Switch

MediaOne, in conjunction with The Switch, maintains HD/SDI Pool Ports for the purpose of sending and receiving breaking news stories and other content that our Switch customers may make available.  MediaOne and Switch customers such as Oracle, Salesforce, and others will often make Keynote Speeches, or B-Roll from their corporate events available on The Switch to anyone who wishes to take in the feeds.

If Pool Feeds are made available at the San Francisco Switch, there is no charge to you for taking the feed.  If the Pool Feed is made available in another city, MediaOne charges the per-minute Inter-City on Demand (ICOD) charge to bring that feed to San Francisco.  ICOD is the long haul fiber transmission service offering, available between each of the 53 active cities of The Switch, and is often used by companies with large national footprints.  For more details, contact us.
