Message from the Representative Director

The future state of the broadcasting industry that was predicted for change has finally been realised in recent years. Not only the commercialization of home video camera equipment, but also the popularization of live broadcasting through social media platforms is ubiquitous now. This has challenged the industry by making high standards of broadcasting no longer limited to professionals with special equipment and techniques.

This trend will expand the range of broadcasting in the future, so TV broadcasting networks at the top of the industry must evolve to compete with these trends. With this in mind, however, there is still an essential requirement in the market for independent companies like Express for whom a considerable body of work is specifically and in many cases exclusively requested.

Express aims to become a truly flexible company to accommodate a client's needs by maximizing our ability to create a variety of video production that we have established for over 20 years in the areas including program production, news reporting technology, live broadcast of sports and concerts, commercial production, program licensing, movie production, publishing, internet distribution, application development, hydroponics, etc.
