IDEAS, a leading Innovation Studio, and technology leader Club Satellite Network (CSN) of Menlo Park, California have entered into a partnership to develop and deploy a new national digital media network. The private label network will bring robust content to an array of resorts and golf destinations across North America. CSN is designing and will deliver the network. IDEAS is the exclusive provider of creative, production, and post production services for the network.
“This is where the future of digital media is going. CSN is deploying an array of interactive touch screens – bringing the power and reach of IP-based networks to a high value demographic,” commented Ted Salata, Chairman and CEO of CSN. “Now, resorts, golf clubs and other vacation destinations can have their own guest-facing network. The system combines advanced IP network and media technology, with the strength of compelling, immersive content. Each deployment brings new revenues and profits to the resorts, through ad-supported content, transactional, and promotional looping screens. The guest also benefits by having the power of vacation information at their fingertips.”
“Our years of experience in creating content for television, film, the web and themed attractions – all combine to bring the power of immersive content to the CSN network,” Phil Ruggieri, CEO of IDEAS added. “Our business is designed to reach diverse audiences with messages that have impact, creating a strong bond between customers and brands. The CSN network is an example of how audiences can be reached in new ways, and how resorts, golf operators and other vacation destinations can enrich the guest experience with the power of information. Our job is to inform, teach and entertain — the CSN network brings that to a very valuable audience.”
Club Satellite Network (CSN) operates web-based communication networks, serving the golf and resort industry.

Club Satellite Network’s Club Concierge video screens are user friendly touch windows that provide on demand access to information about amenities, events and services at luxury golf courses and resorts.
