Finepoint Broadcast announces major expansion to hire fleet
Finepoint Broadcast has announced a major expansion to its broadcast equipment dry-hire fleet with a £2 million investment scheduled over 12 months.
“This new investment demonstrates the company’s commitment to its customer base as we continue to advance our reputation for quality, efficiency and the latest technology,” commented Finepoint’s hire manager, Clive Northen.
“Hiring enables our customers to match their equipment needs to specific projects without incurring heavy capital costs. It also cushions them from the rapid advances currently taking place in terms of production standards, notably the transition from HD to UHD, from SDR to HDR, from SDI to IP and conceivably from UHD to 8K.
“With 4K/UHD gaining increased acceptance across the broadcast market, we have invested in the very latest equipment including Sony HDC-4300 and HDC-4800 cameras and associated 4K Canon lenses.
“Other recent additions to our rental fleet include EVS XT3 ChannelMax and Xfile3 production servers, Vinten Vector 430 pan and tilt heads and the flagship model in Sony’s professional monitor line-up – the BVM-X300 30 inch OLED.”
