Département Caméra in Canada Embrces Nipros Camera Systems
Samaserve, the Nipros sales, marketing, and service affiliate, has announced the sale of five Nipros LS 750/850 GTS camera-systemization rigs to Canada-based production-equipment-rental/service/studio firm Département Caméra.
“We held a number of extremely positive meetings at NAB,” Samaserve CEO Mel Medina says. “The fact that Département Camera has made this decision underscores the flexibility and cost-effectiveness of the Nipros systems.”
The innovative, camera-agnostic Nipros LS 750/850 GTS systems, HDS 300 camera-system build-up rigs, HDF 700 SK monitors, and related accessories will provide Département Caméra with the ability to maximize the potential of virtually any camera for any type of shoot, including simultaneous uncompressed 4K and HD projects. “These Nipros systems will benefit our customers and their clients with significant savings in time, flexibility, and by extending the productive life of their existing camera investments,” Medina adds.
As founder of Montreal-based Départment Caméra, one of Canada’s major rental houses, Jacques Lamontagne has been familiar with the Nipros brand for many years. Highly positive early reports on the Nipros LS 750/850 GTS camera system led him to make a special point of visiting the Nipros/Samaserve booth at NAB 2014. An impressive live demo of the Nipros LS 750 supporting a RED 4K EPIC DRAGON, coupled with a hands-on familiarization with the system at the show convinced him that Nipros was ideal for his client base.
“We provide production technology to a wide range of TV–, feature-film–, and documentary–production companies, and we have been looking for a highly flexible system, capable of working with virtually any camera,” Lamontagne says. “Nipros has developed the most versatile camera system we’ve seen. It enables us to maximize the potential of every camera in our inventory, from Sony to Canon, ARRI and RED. The fact that the system is 4K-ready now makes it an even stronger long-term investment.”
Mel Medina reports that a second Canadian sale of multiple Nipros camera-systemization rigs will be announced soon.
