New Zealand's premier producers of television and corporate communications.
Screentime is one of New Zealand's leading producers of actuality television, documentary and corporate video. The company came to be known as Screentime, after its Australian owners, in February 2004, but its origins date back more than 20 years.

In 2001 the company merged with one of Australia's most dynamic production companies, Screentime, and became known as Screentime-Communicado.
