Gorilla Proof cases!


We always knew Peli Protector Cases were tough equipment cases built to withstand the harshest handling but they have now proved to be …Gorilla proof!
The Peli 1120 case was recently used by the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust in Jersey as an enrichment device for their Silverback Gorilla, Ya Kwanza.
The 1120 Peli case was customised to hold a small, HD camera to allow the Silverback to film himself. It was covered in oats and honey and also contained some raisins which challenged Ya Kwanza to investigate the case, encouraging mental stimulation. The case was subjected to everything a 200kg+ Gorilla can do to it - he shook it, he threw it and he gnawed at it to get the raisins out.
The film, which can be viewed at http://images.peliproducts.co.uk/media/gorilla.html shows the case being thrown around without any damage to the camera inside. The HD camera filmed some remarkable and unusual footage up close and personal.
Andrew Scott-Miller, responsible for Events and Marketing at Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, commented “Our gorilla keeper came up with this idea and it clearly required an indestructible box and Peli's reputation of indestructible equipment was exactly what we needed.”

21st Century Technology for 20th Century Content
James Hall A big challenge facing owners of legacy content is rationalising and archiving their tape and film-based media in cost effective and efficient ways, whilst also adding value. Normally the result of this is to find a low cost means of digitising the content – usually leaving them with a bunch of assets on HDD. But then what? How can content owners have their cake and eat it?
