Bexel Boosts Supply of Panasonic Equipment to Gear up for Olympics
In advance of the Vancouver Games later this month, Bexel has added several Panasonic P2 HD VariCam camcorders and accessories to its P2 HD inventory.
Bexel, a unit of the Vitec Group’s Services Division, has purchased from Panasonic more than 20 additional P2 HD VariCam 3700 (HPX3700) and 2700 (HPX2700) camcorders, HPM200 P2 mobile edit stations, PCD35 E Series P2 readers and more than 300 P2 memory cards.
“This purchase of the Panasonic HD camera equipment is extremely timely considering this new gear will immediately go into service at the Vancouver Winter Olympics,” says Craig Schiller, VP.GM, Bexel. “The 2700’s and 3700’s are known for being durable, reliable camcorders, especially in the extreme weather conditions that are common in Vancouver. The addition of this premium equipment helps us further service our clients’ demand for the latest in HD camera technology.”
Bexel has already used the Panasonic P2 gear for several television productions, including coverage of the Senior Skins golf tournament in Hawaii, this past January.
