ABOUT CENTRE COMMUNICATIONS
Centre Communications was founded by Ron Meyer in the early 1980s to produce series and programs for the public television system. In the late 1980s Centre turned its focus to acquiring and distributing programs to schools, libraries and the growing number of cable services. Throughout the early 1990s Centre grew its catalog to over 600 programs and series. During this time, production continued for such program services as Discovery, The Disney Channel, National Geographic Explorer, PBS and Nickelodeon, for which it won a cable Ace Award.
Centre also produced the first feature film for Discovery/Animal Planet: Legend of the Spirit Dog. In 1998 Centre sold its catalog to Discovery Education, allowing it to move more heavily into full time production and digital services. Since then Centre has produced over 40 series that have found distribution in national and international markets.
In 2006, Kenny James joined the team and in addition to bringing his production and post production skills, he expanded the business to compete in the digital world. One of his first projects was to help design and implement the award winning digital streaming site for Ambrose Video, one of the nation’s top college-level educational distributors. Subsequently, Centre now supplies specialized streaming and closed caption files for institutions across the country.
