About Prime Television

Lower cost alternatives will now enable High Definition shooting for mainstream television possible. The good news does not end there. Prime is offering HDW-730S shooting kits for the same hire price as our Digital Betacam kits. Four times the quality and you can still edit in Standard Definition at reasonable cost. Pictures shot in HD and then edited in SD are still significantly better than those shot and edited in Digi Beta. We will also provide a free loan H-J3 player to output from HD to SD in post. If you still want to shoot Digi Beta, then please do call us. We want to know why.

We are now the UK’s leading supplier of broadcast minicams and robotic cameras for entertainment and reality shows, documentaries, dramas, commercials, news and current affairs. We are able to bring you a variety of different shooting options and often we combine minicams, robotics, regular PSC shooting with Jimmy Jibs and Polecams.

We have been at the cutting edge of technological advances since our beginning, nearly 15 years ago. We were the first in the UK to offer the Steadicam EFP, the Sony BVW-400 camcorder and the new High Definition Sony HDW-730S HDCAM cameras. Today, as a major UK broadcast facilities provider, we offer the whole range of Sony professional video formats. So whether you are shooting HDCAM, Digital Betacam, Betacam SX, Betacam SP, DVCAM or DV, Prime Television is your one-stop supplier for the finest equipment around. For our American and Japanese clients we have most of these formats in PAL as well as NTSC, as well as High Definition HDCAM capable of shooting 60i.

With a database of over one hundred freelancers across the UK we pride ourselves in being able to fit the right person to the job in the right situation. Most of our freelance crews have been working for us for over five years and some since our beginning fifteen years ago. Our choice of crew is based not only on their technical experience but also on their personalities. We know how important it is, on every production that people get on. Our crews are also well travelled and experienced in shooting all around the world.

With a fleet of broadcast formats, maintenance and technical support are the backbone of a successful video facilities business. As well as our own range of PAL and NTSC cameras and VTR’s, our Sony-trained engineers keep other companies' equipment serviced to exacting standards. We can even repair and keep your own equipment working properly. Our technical support department is manned 7 days a week with genuine 24-hour, 365 days a year back-up.
