Gearhouse And Hitachi At BVE 2013 Camera Roadshow

Gearhouse Broadcast and Hitachi Kokusai Electric Europe will be kicking off the broadcast camera roadshow at this year's BVE show.
At stand E68 the companies will unveil a new mobile exhibition vehicle.
Designed to showcase Hitachi’s high definition (HD) cameras, the vehicle contains the SK-HD 1200 high-end multi-format 1080p/3G production camera as well as the SK-HD 1500 HD Supermotion system camera and DK-H100 HDTV box camera. The vehicle will be fully equipped as a mobile camera rig and contain all the box lenses, tripod systems and an EVS server system, to enable potential customers to evaluate the technical performance of these advanced broadcast system cameras.
Built around a seven metre Mercedes Sprinter van, the vehicle will spend the remainder of the year travelling throughout the UK and Ireland, visiting Gearhouse Broadcast customers and contacts to showcase the new Hitachi camera ranges.
"We took delivery of our Hitachi cameras last summer and immediately they went into our rental fleet. At a number of major international sporting events, the cameras have proved to be robust, reliable and technically advanced," said Eamonn Dowdall, Business Development Director at Gravity Media, parent company of Gearhouse Broadcast.
"So impressed are we with these cameras that we have teamed up to help Hitachi market them and this roadshow will enable our team of technologists and expert camera operators to get out on the road and tell broadcasters and facilities just how good they are. We anticipate a busy period ahead since many broadcasters and production facilities are keen for us to visit them with our mobile camera unit."
Hitachi KEU sees the year-long roadshow as a chance for broadcasters and production facilities to share the Hitachi camera experience. The event follows on from the company’s launch last year of one of the market’s most sophisticated families of broadcast cameras.
"Our intention is clear - to become regarded as the leading supplier of broadcast camera technologies," commented Paddy Roache, Director and General Manager of Hitachi KEU.
"New ventures, such as our relationship with Gearhouse Broadcast, are fundamental to support our growing presence in UK and international broadcast markets. Our cameras are technically best in class and the ownership experience for Hitachi cameras is without parallel. We just need to extend that user experience. Gearhouse has invested in Hitachi and other companies should spend time to consider why. This latest initiative with Gearhouse will put our cameras on the road throughout the UK and Europe. Take the Hitachi challenge and try them out!"
Appearing at the show will be the Hitachi SKHD 1200 broadcast system camera, the SK HD family represent versatile dockable HD TV cameras and the Hitachi SKHD 1500 Supermotion camera.
