Project: Gearhouse Broadcast agree order with XL Video for fifty Sony HXC-100s
HD approved Sony specialist dealer, Gearhouse Broadcast has agreed an order for fifty Sony HXC-100 HD camera channels to concert touring and event specialist video company XL Video. Gearhouse Broadcast was tasked with trialing the HXC-100 on XL’s behalf to ensure the camera was capable of meeting the company’s high-demands.
With the assistance of Sony, the first HXC-100 in Europe was supplied to Gearhouse and tested in live broadcast applications. Working closely with XL's technical team, Gearhouse was able to determine that the HXC-100 was an ideal fit for their application.
XL Video has used the HXC-100’s on the Kylie, Elbow and Neyo tours and will take delivery of the remaining 38 channels later this autumn. Gearhouse Broadcast is the first reseller to sell the Sony HXC-100 HD Camera Channels into Europe.
XL Video’s Managing Director Lee Spencer explained “XL's business is growing and the increasing demand for HD required a long term investment. We made a conscious decision to move our inventory to HD throughout 2009. The HXC-100 was evaluated against the best of breed alternatives and was selected as the best value and most appropriate fit to support our intensive HD expansion plans.”
