Our team works in all facets of production: from writing a compelling script and bringing out our camera crews,
to creating custom motion graphics and putting your finished video on the web for many to enjoy.
We truly believe in the power of visual communications and we scale our tools and technology to
meet each project’s goals within budget, scope, and schedule. We have produced national
television commercials that were shot on film and aired extensively. Yet, we have also helped
nonprofit organizations design small outreach programs that engage a targeted audience.

The emergence of affordable digital tools has brought the capability of producing video content to many companies. What’s missing is the skill and vision to fully implement the power these tools offer. RHED Pixel can help you devise solutions that partner your internal resources with necessary outside services.
After 12 years of working in the graphic design and video industry, Richard Harrington set off to found his own group. His goal was to harness the new generation of digital video tools to bring high-quality media production to a broad audience. In 1999, Richard Harrington Video opened its doors, offering video production, multimedia, and consulting services to a wide range of clients.
As the company grew in size and scope, a name change seemed like a logical step…and RHED Pixel was born. RHED is an acronym for Richard Harrington Electronic Design. This encapsulated the core services of the company. The word pixel is a portmanteau for picture element, the building block of the visual communications industry.
In a similar sense, we believe our team’s strength lies in how our staff’s talents blend together to give each of our projects a creative and unique identity.
RHED Pixel is a visual communications company dedicated to helping our clients
achieve results. We believe the effective use of communication tools can motivate
an audience and create results that organizations need to remain competitive and
relevant in today’s world.
We like to think of projects as a creative collaboration between many parties. At the core of this collaboration is the client. Nobody knows your message better than you and client involvement is crucial to producing a product that effectively reaches its target audience. We have developed the following workflow to encourage this client involvement.
|Creative Kickoff||Everyone comes together to brainstorm the most effective approach for the project.
|Budgeting Detail||We put together a detailed budget and scope statement, which allows us to provide the maximum production value possible within your budget parameters.
|Schedule||A realistic project schedule is developed and updated weekly to ensure an on-time delivery.
|Scripting||The detail of scripting will vary depending upon the creative approach, but all approaches begin with developing a full creative treatment.
|Production||Our crew hits the road (or the studio) to capture the content and spirit of your project.
|Editing||Stay involved by reviewing your project on the Internet, or join us in one of our comfortable editing suites. We can also bring the edit to you with one of our mobile editing systems.
|Review||We create a webpage with your video embedded in it, allowing you to conveniently review the latest cut of your video or pick sound bites from anywhere you can access the Internet. We can also deliver a VHS or a DVD if that works better for you.
|Delivery||We see your project all the way through to its final delivery. No matter what the final format, we’ll work with you until your target audience is reached.
Communicate – Motivate – Create
The key to succeeding in any business is recruitment and retention. At the heart of this success are effective communication tools that must attract, motivate, and retain both employees and customers. This is where media can be an extremely powerful tool in both bringing in new business and in letting current customers know you want to stay ahead of the competition.
We truly believe that the electronic media tools of today will build the solutions for tomorrow.
At RHED Pixel, we know that the message is crucial. But we also know that the presentation of the message is equally as important. It’s like cooking dinner for good friends. No one is going to enjoy the meal or care how much time you spent preparing it if you burn the food, spill the drinks, and forget the dessert. You have to take the time to package and present your good ideas.
As Elmer Wheeler said:
“Don’t Sell the Steak. Sell the Sizzle.”
You need substance, but you also need presentation.
