What started as a humble studio in a North Shore apartment has now exploded into what we have today. And we are all very excited! Guardian Media now has two offices, North Sydney and Gosford.
Although our client base is predominantly in the Sydney Metropolitan Area, all our post production, editing and duplications are done in our Gosford studio at Shop 138B Faunce St, GOSFORD.
Our North Sydney office at Pacific Highway is open by appointment for client meetings and presentations.

Our camera of choice is the new Sony DSR-PD-170. These broadcast quality, professional units, are of a compact design, meaning you get high quality recording in the most unobtrusive manner. These cameras have exeptional low light recording ability, (Rated to 1 Lux), so lights are virtually never needed.
We also use a Sony DSR 570 and HDV is now available with the Sony HVR-Z1
We also use multiple discreet broadcast quality wireless lapel microphones as well as auxiliary microphones to ensure those all important vows are not missed.
Our non-linear digital editing studios are constantly being updated with the latest technology and industry standard software, and we are proud to be able to pass on to our clients, the latest in title creation and effects. As everything remains in digital format, there is no loss in image quality throughout the whole production. We also use the latest DVD authoring system from Apple to produce Hollywood-style DVDs. This is done with Final Cut Pro HD and DVD Studio Pro 2 on an Apple Mac G5 - Dual 2GHZ - Advertised as "The world's fastest, most powerful personal computer."
