"Our creative and technical teams are well-known for working fast and producing extraordinary results. This, coupled with the i.d.e.a.s. HD post-production facilities made us the logical choice."

"In 72 hours we logged over 60 editing hours in three edit suites before uplinking Saturday at 10 a.m.," comments Weed.
About the All-America College Football Team Announcement
The broadcast of the top gridiron players, as selected by the Football Writers Association of America, was made famous in years past by Bob Hope who traditionally made the announcement during his annual Christmas special. This year the network broadcast of the 2004 All-America College Football Team announcement marks the first year ABC has produced the broadcast.
After 13 years of operation as part of The Disney-MGM Studios, i.d.e.a.s. was acquired by its founder, Bob Allen, from The Walt Disney Company as part of a management buyout in July of 2001. A widely respected story consulting, production and post-production company, i.d.e.a.s. develops integrated communication tools and solutions, handling everything from story concept and development, creative design, video/DVD production, simulation training, high definition (HD) production, original content programming, and guest experience review.
