At Procam, we are setting a new standard in broadcast hire. We don’t simply send out kit. On-going consultation is part of our service to all our clients. From offering our expertise on the first booking call through to full project management.

Our first priority is to keep you shooting, wherever you are, whatever you need. This is why all of our equipment is fully tested before leaving the building as well as on return and is rigorously maintained. As all our warehouse technicians are aspiring crew, they fully understand your needs on set and bear this in mind when prepping equipment. Should something fail, we will replace the item as quickly as possible.

To make this a reality, we believe in making sure our crew are constantly developing and training with our own in-house training programme.

Press Release:

PROCAM ACQUIRES BRITISH BROADCAST AND CINEMATIC LENS INNOVATOR, TRUE LENS SERVICES

Acquisition is the latest move in Procam’s ambitious growth plans
Boosts product innovation capabilities
Responds to customer demand for filmic look in television productions
With this acquisition and organic growth, Procam’s revenues now doubled from £5m to £10m since 2013 MBO
The UK’s largest broadcast hire company, Procam, today announced the acquisition of Leicester-based lens service and manufacturing facility True Lens Services.

Procam has experienced rapid organic growth since its management buy-out (MBO) in May 2013 and with the added boost of the acquisition, revenues have doubled from £5m to £10m. With ambitious plans for further acquisitions and services, revenues are projected to hit £20m by 2017, making Procam one of the biggest broadcast hire and production services companies globally.

This is the first time a UK hire company has acquired engineering capabilities and addresses the surge in demand from UK production companies to create content with the higher production values often associated with films. The 35mm lenses that have always been used in film production are now increasingly being used in TV to create this same look.

The cinematic style of shooting is now commonplace within factual productions, documentaries and constructed reality series, a style Procam helped to introduce to the constructed reality show Made in Chelsea. The show’s offering proved such a success in the UK that major US channel Bravo Media was quick to grab the Brit hit, buying spin-off series Made In Chelsea: NYC.

True Lens Services is famous for its lens innovation, with an unbeatable reputation in the design, manufacture and servicing of lenses and support equipment. This year, the British company created a bespoke digital conve
