News Image
ES Broadcast Hire has announced a significant investment in Sony equipment. The news was revealed at IBC2017, and the investment involves Sony 4K HDR technology, with the purchase of 100 x HDC-4300 4K system cameras, 2 x HDC-4800 Ultra High Frame Rate cameras, and 2 x XVS-8000 4K switchers.

The investment comes as ES Broadcast Hire continues its European expansion, with new offices in Munich and Madrid and a further opening expected in Belgium later this year.

Headquartered in London, ES Broadcast Hire invested in Sony's HDC-4300 in January 2016 and now has the largest fleet of HDC-4300s in Europe, totalling over 140 channels in addition to more than 100 Sony HDC-2500 cameras already in its inventory and a number of HDC-P43s.

Edward Saunders, CEO, ES Broadcast Hire, said: "We chose Sony's HDC-4300 because of its proven 4K and HDR performance. We know that an investment in Sony technology will enable our customers to deliver high-quality content to audiences across the globe."

David Nortier, UK Sales Director, Sony Professional Solutions Europe, added: "This major investment shows ES Broadcast Hire's continued confidence in Sony and our technology. By choosing Sony's HDC-4300 cameras, ES Broadcast Hire has equipped themselves with an even stronger fleet of 4K and HDR cameras, which will help their customers tell stories to build their brands and audiences."
