New equipment… and more!

without comments

We are pleased to announce that we have been increasing our inventory of equipment, and have recently purchased a Boxx OB RF Receiver. This means that we now have 2 complete HD RF wireless systems, suitable for all applications.


We have 2 camera-mounted TX units, plus 2 RX units (suitable for Outside Broadcast, Live Events / Multicamera, & Video Assist on set).

We own both an OB Receiver, which has multiple antennae and is stand mounted, and a portable Receiver, which is suitable for use in a variety of mounting options, including use with portable LCDs. It can also be stand mounted.


With our existing Telex Radio Comms kit, we now have the facility to provide 2 complete wireless HD or SD camera channels in-house. The RF links can support all video formats:- HD-SDI, SDI, component HD / SD, and composite. We also have HD-SDI Das, to provide multiple HD-SDI outputs, and we can also output simultaneous composite video for preview monitoring purposes if required.


We have been offering wireless camera solutions for some years now, but have now reached the stage of providing full kits for both handheld and Steadicam options. We have recently even used one of our links as a point-to-point RF link with our Jimmy Jib camera crane. We also provided a full RF kit for the World Netball Series in Liverpool (handheld camera) & British Military Tournament in London (Steadicam).


For Live Events, Music, and Awards shows, we offer great quality service packages. We have a standard package of a 2-man crew plus all the kit – which includes Steadicam Operator, Steadicam Rig (inc. zoom & focus), Steadicam/RF Assistant, RF Wireless Link Kit, Radio Comms and HD or SD camera and lens (if required).  We can also integrate seamlessly into our clients’ PPU or equivalent, by providing additional RF Telemetry kits – to enable our camera to be racked remotely by the Vision Engineer, to match other triax cabled cameras. Our RF Links have zero compression, and zero delay – cutting perfectly with other cabled systems cameras – making them a perfect choice for Multicamera applications…and also perfect for Video Assist on set of dramas and music promos.


We now have

2 x Steadicam systems

1 x Jimmy Jib Camera Crane (6ft-40ft)

2 x HD RF Wireless Links

1 x 17” HD Monitor

Camera Support Accessories, mounting plates & cabling

In addition to our latest equipment purchases, we have invested in a new accounting system – so please be aware that our invoices will have a new look from 2012. This is a part of our drive to refit our office and bookings system, to make quotations and workflow more efficient for ourselves and our clients. So expect a new look to our Invoices and Statements of Account with immediate effect. As per the newsletter we sent out at the start of 2012, our payment terms remain at a strict 30 days for existing clients, and we no longer accept cheques as forms of payment.

Further improving our service, in addition to our trusty VW Transporter 1.9TDI Van, we also now have a second crew vehicle – a Ford Mondeo Titanium 2.0TDCI. With massive loadspace and generous legroom for the crew in the back, it’s the perfect vehicle to get our camera crew to where they need to be. It is also capable of handling all the Steadicam and RF kit, too!
