Grass Valley supplied 30 LDX Première advanced imaging cameras to Bexel, a leading provider of high-end audio and video equipment rentals, production gear and fiber services, for coverage of the recent 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Bexel provides engineered systems and technical support to television production teams and film crews. The company has offices across the United States with representation in São Paulo, Brazil and Mexico City.
