The Polecam Professional Pack (PPP) will be on display at BVE and is contained in 2 Peli cases; the 1770 and 1600 models (excluding tripod and dolly). The components of the PPP are held securely in place in custom foam during transit. The waterproof, crushproof Peli case ensures the Polecam kit reaches the location in perfect condition. Steffan Hewitt, Director of Polecam, has used Peli cases for more than 20 years. “Peli is an internationally recognised brand and product. The worldwide warranty offers unrivalled back-up and support. We have first-hand knowledge that if anything on the Peli case is broken in transit, it is replaced with no quibbles. For a jobbing cameraman that level of support is second to none. Wherever you are in the world, the Peli case does the job.” The assurance of travelling with kit in custom foam in a protective case is a firm favourite with crews heading to the Olympics in Brazil and to challenging locations throughout the world.
