A listing of some of Omaha Trans-Video’s clients is impressive: ConAgra Foods, First National Bank, RFD-TV, the Jewish Federation of Omaha, the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce, Rotella’s Bakery, and Nebraska DECA- A State Educational Organization, just to name a few. The video production and editing business has produced training programs, promotional videos, and shows for awards banquets and conventions for dozens of corporate clients in its nearly quarter century in business.
The company also has many retail clients for whom it converts personal home movies, reel-to-reel audio, video tapes, even 78rpm records and other media produced in outdated formats into current digital formats, DVDs and CDs. Old slides, photos and other “family treasures” can be restored to a high-quality digital form as well.
A big percentage of Omaha Trans-Video’s production work comes from repeat customers. “We develop long-term relationships with our clients… They return to us year after year because our programs make a difference in their lives and make their events special,” said Theresa Case, OTV’s current owner and an employee since 1992.
Founded in 1987, Omaha Trans-Video was purchased by Case in 2003. Her Production Manager, Joe Sittler, has been with the company since 1988. "Both Joe and I earned our degrees in video production from Metropolitan Community College. We are visual people and have a talent and a desire to communicate with sight and sound," Case said. Case credits OTV’s whole team - including film editor Candace Hartwig, Dominick Case, who works in the duplication area, and her accounting/bookkeeping team - for OTV’s success. "We all pride ourselves in helping clients accomplish the best results possible."
"Helping companies and families create media presentations and to preserve their histories to be carried on through generations is gratifying work," Case said. "We care about people and have been truly blessed to work with many great organizations and families over the years. The handshakes, the hugs, the tears and the smiles we see make our work worth all the hours we put in."
