Empowering dynamic content production

Our revolutionary new approach to content making enables production teams to be their best together

The Lumi.Media story started in 2014 when an experienced screen content executive producer – Karen Dewey – was working with a large team on location making a TV series. Karen found herself frustrated by how hard it was for the team to distribute information, collaborate efficiently, and hold the creative vision.

The team struggled to disseminate key decisions, directions, and documents, with versions changing and messages losing clarity as they passed up and down the line. She saw time, money, and resources being wasted as people were forced to work in silos, duplicating systems in each department. There had to be a better way!

Karen began to explore the options and had an idea. She teamed up with her brother Neil, a leading software architect with 30 years of experience in secure systems and data management, and Lumi.Media was born.

Lumi is a powerful hub for content production that dynamically connects teams, and synthesises, consolidates and multiplies the whole team’s efforts. By bringing everything into one central hub, Lumi enables you to build a network of information, connecting previously isolated information for greater visibility, deeper insights, better decision making, and faster feedback loops. It enables teams to make better content while maximising resources, budgets, and people.

Lumi connects the entire team to the whole story. With Lumi every team member and stakeholder can view whatever they need, when they need it, from wherever they are. Everything in Lumi is live and fully searchable, and customisable to suit your project and your way of working.

Pioneer customers used words like “magic” to describe the Lumi effect on their productions. It quickly became clear there was potential to Lumify any high-performance organisation with teams producing ongoing creative projects. This includes teams involved in screen production, broadcasting, talent management, creative agencies, sports, events, and festivals.

Our team is guided by four core values

We believe that every member of the team has value and we strive to help everyone to be the best they can be, whenever they join the team, and from whichever location they work – home, office, on location, in a studio, or even at the beach.

We are committed to listening and innovating in partnership with customers. We unite all the skills and brains of our team (a mix of industry and technical professionals) and yours to find a better way.

We are creative insiders who know the power of clarity in helping teams do more, think more, and create more as they collaborate better and faster, together.

We know that clever technology can enhance editorial and production outcomes, but it needs to be flexible and seamless. It’s in our DNA to support creative, field, and production teams however they want to work and whatever they are making.
