V9-Digital is the production and preservation service provider of the Nine Network of Public Media, located in the Grand Center Arts District of St. Louis, Missouri.

V9-Digital’s production team works with corporations, educational institutions, and nonprofit organizations to produce compelling videos to meet a wide array of needs, from marketing and training, to events, online engagement and more. We bring versatility, experience and a passion for storytelling to each project, providing production guidance and support every step of the way, from concept to completion.

V9-Digital began offering preservation services following an asset purchase from NURAY Digital. In January 2017, the Nine Network purchased the assets of South Carolina-based NURAY Digital. Nuray Digital offered the latest technology for the high-volume restoration, preservation and digitization of video archives. These resources expand the many capabilities of V9-Digital’s extensive production services.

V9-Digital provides a range of preservation services for athletic organizations, government agencies, universities and colleges, historical societies, production companies, TV stations, nonprofits and other organizations with a variety of preservation services. These include digitization, restoration, and media asset management and retrieval services for enhancing content accessibility.

Media and communications entrepreneurs Rick and Dee Ray founders of RAYCOM Media in 1979 founded NURAY Digital in Bluffton, South Carolina in 2010. Over the course of its operation, the company preserved more than 36,000 media assets on behalf of its clients. The Ray’s wished to cease the operations of NURAY Digital in order to focus on other business ventures and were interested in locating a buyer they were confident could continue to provide existing clients with a high degree of quality and professionalism. “Dee Ray said” We are very pleased to pass along the opportunity to help preserve the millions of hours of content existing today to such a solid and creative group of people.”


Nine Network of Public Media is a multifaceted organization creating a network of individuals and organizations empowered by public media to strengthen civic life. One of the nation’s most watched public television stations, Nine Network offers the people of the St. Louis region multiple ways to explore the world and become engaged in civic life. Nine’s platforms include four distinct broadcast channels (Nine PBS, Nine World, Nine Create and Nine PBS Kids), the Nine Center for Public Engagement, the Public Media Commons, social media, and multiple websites accessible at nineNet.org. Nine Network’s rich legacy of serving the community was launched in 1954 and continues through our vision of a strong and healthy community working together through public media and our mission of igniting the spirit of possibility.
