Outside broadcast company NEP Visions has embarked on one of its most ambitious projects to date, after securing a $1m (£636,000) deal to supply equipment and technical crew for the seventh Asian Winter Games later this month.
The Staines-based outfit will provide flypack OB systems for six venues in Kazakhstan, and projects manager Tim Allsop said the eight-day event was stretching the firm’s resources.
“We’ve had to dive into the hire market to help with cross-hiring of cameras,” he said.
As well as laying 75km of fibre and Triax cable, Visions will supply more than 100 camera channels with a mixture of Sony 1500 and 3300 HD cameras and Philips HD cameras, 56 large lenses, 28 EVS servers and 36 HDCAM video recorders.
“The majority of our equipment is tied up on football contracts,” Allsop continued. “We can source vision mixers and monitor stacks from our mother firm in the US, but it’s the high-ticket items we don’t have lying around for one-off projects.
“We only released about 16 of our own cameras and we sourced the rest from the UK hire market and abroad.”
Allsop said that NEP Visions would plough 40% of the $1m generated by the event back into the UK hire market.
