Lights, camera, action! Video production

Further investment in our AV equipment hire for event production

Video is fast becoming one of the best and most effective ways to communicate. Not only online through various styles of video such as capturing key moments, interviews, creative montages or live/on-demand web-streaming, but also for camera relay onto stage screens to enhance the audiences experience at a live event.

As part of our ongoing manta to constantly invest in new audio-visual equipment and to be able to facilitate all options for our clients, we have recently bought two JVC GY-HM790 Pro-HD Camcorders with all the accessories to add to our video stock.
These are cutting edge cameras and are used heavily in broadcasting environments so we knew the image quality would be exceptional. Being designed for high profile media platforms also means the cameras are flexible to allow us to capture more interesting shots and mixes for events – particularly important for live camera relay on stage screens and to capture footage for post event video edits.

JVC CameraOther key features which impressed us are:

  • Designed to achieve higher HD quality
  • Only one fibre-optic cable required, which means less set up and therefore neater on-site
  • Lighter weight chassis flexible to allow for shoulder mounting or tripod
  • Easy to use for roaming on shoulder mount to produce stable, steady shots
  • Smooth tripod for more fluid motions
  • Built in time code and recording options (saves on memory cards!)

Ross Laird, Head of Video Production said:

“It’s important to bring exciting equipment like this in-house as part of our AV equipment hire stock. To be able to offer broadcast quality footage to our clients is essential as video is being integrated into more events: whether it’s an interview for a conference, filming finalists for an awards ceremony, live camera relay showing all the on-stage action, dynamic post event montages, web-casting or a one-off project. We have to keep on top of key trends to stay ahead in our ever changing industry.”

Having had the cameras for only a month, they have already made a big impact on a number of our live events in London and our video production team are looking forward to getting these out into the field on more film shoots and testing them to their full potential.
