THUMBWAR is a technical solutions company that combines the talents of our diverse staff, our inventory of equipment, and the experience of over fifteen years in business to produce unique solutions to solve our clients needs.
We work with broadcast networks to design and execute live broadcast workflows, with an emphasis on remote work and hybrid workflows.
We work with content providers to enable workflows that leverage content aggregation to create engaging programming for platforms such as web and mobile during marquee events.  
We work with large companies and institutions where we have integrated large-scale storage and archive environments and remain trusted partners after the initial installation for on-going support and maintenance.  We do this by providing consulting, on-going support, and turnkey IT infrastructure design and deployment.
Our team, our clients, and our projects may be diverse, but at the core is a cohesive understanding of our customers’ needs and how THUMBWAR’s unique perspective and skillset can address them.
