Broadcast rental specialist, Presteigne Broadcast Hire has supported broadcasters from around the world as they send coverage back from the current sporting events in Sochi, Russia. These include Japan’s Nippon Television Network (NTV).

 The broadcaster has rented a number of XDCam decks for recording, editing and ingest. NTV also has an on-site studio, for which Presteigne Broadcast Hire has provided two complete camera chains, together with a studio pedestal.

 “As Olympic coverage is not an everyday event, we need to supplement our own equipment with rented kit,” said Yujin Suzuki, technical director of NTV. “We have to balance our needs on site with our production plans back in Japan.

 We have been working with Presteigne Broadcast Hire for some years now to cover a number of events,” he added. “Renting from Japan would take up too much shipping time, and dry hire is not common in Russia – they expect to provide personnel alongside the equipment which we did not need. We have enjoyed good service from Presteigne Broadcast Hire in the past, and we had confidence in their commitment to support us in Sochi.”

TV Connect Asia takes place on the 12th-13th May, 2015, in Suntec, Singapore. Click here for booking and more info.
