Polecam growth continues with 500th rig sale
UK company Polecam Systems announced the sale of Polecam rig number 500 to South Korean broadcaster MBC. The sale was made just prior to the show via local distributor Green Trading.
Polecam Systems managing director Graeme Chapman says: “I am delighted with the global growth in Polecam sales and in the recognition by the industry and other sectors of its value as an indispensable production tool.
“The significant product upgrades and enhancements we make available are an essential part of our R&D, and together with the new Polecam Starter Pack has resulted in making rig ownership more accessible to more people, and enabling a broader range of cameras to be used. We have also restructured our distribution and backup to be more globally available and effective.
“Many of our owner operators have established a very successful career path using their Polecam rigs, and the use of Polecam is extending from programme making into other areas such as industrial applications, medical training and even wedding video production.
“Most importantly, the success of the product leads back to its designer, Steffan Hewitt. His fundamental design has not changed, but technology has, and Polecam has advanced with it, all the way.”
Steffan Hewitt adds: ”This is a landmark sale for us, and good to see that it came via our long standing South Korean distributor Jaesu Jong of Green Trading. He has been very active there and worked hard, introducing Polecam initially to KBS, the Korean Broadcasting System, and now with increasing numbers into the flourishing broadcast industry there.”
