PRO MOTION HIRE CELEBRATES 5TH ANNIVERSARY WITH BEST MONTH IN ITS HISTORY
Pro Motion Hire the leading broadcast equipment hire company, today announced that it enjoyed its highest ever revenue for the month of May 2010, giving further reason to celebrate its fifth year in business. In addition Pro Motion Hire is moving its Brighton operation to larger premises in 'Soho-by-the-Sea' to handle increased demand for hires in the Southern region.

Duncan Martin, Director, Pro Motion Hire, said, "Given the tough global economy and the poor state of the production market, I couldn't be happier with our May results. We strive to provide unbeatable quality of service and always endeavour to accommodate any reasonable request, and I think that shows in our rebooking rate.We have also worked extremely hard in recent months to ensure we have a solid depth of stock, and that we are first in line to offer new equipment such as the Canon HD Image Stabiliser lens."

Other factors that contributed to Pro Motion Hire's bumper month included a substantial amount of equipment hired out for various World Cup projects, and the successful launch of the company's Cine Motion division.  Cine Motion equipment is aimed at promo, documentary & filmmakers and covers equipment from industry leading manufacturers including Zeiss and P+S Technik, as well as DSLR equipment which is fast growing in popularity.

Added to this success, Pro Motion Hire is also moving its Southern region business to larger premises in Brighton to handle increasing demand in this area. The new offices, led by Andy Holland, will include larger kit rooms and a bespoke demo area as well as two new members of staff.

"We recently held a DSLR event in Brighton and were overwhelmed by the response," added Martin. "There is a real thirst for knowledge here, and we are certainly seeing a growing opportunity for us with more local productions being made."

grass valley kayenne
On June 19, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden married Daniel Westling. This was the first royal wedding in Sweden in more than 30 years, with particularly high interest in the event in Sweden itself and the rest of the EU.
 
National broadcaster SVT provided coverage of the entire day of ceremonies including the wedding itself at Storkyrkan in Stockholm. The wedding was attended by heads of state from across Europe and others, with a guest list exceeding 1,000 people. SVT used one high definition Outside Broadcast truck hired from Mediatec Broadcast Sweden to cover the festivities on the eve of the wedding.
 
Three additional trucks were used to cover the formal wedding ceremony and relied exclusively on Grass Valley LDK 8000 Elite high definition cameras, with over 60 cameras to be used. Grass Valley also provided on-site support for Mediatec for its coverage of the royal wedding.
 
SVT's live broadcast was seen in Sweden and other Scandinavian countries, with the coverage being made available by SVT to broadcasters worldwide.
 
The OB trucks supplied to SVT by Mediatec Broadcast Sweden to cover the royal wedding's events were also equipped with Kayenne™ XL production switchers, Trinix™ routers, and GeckoFlex™ modular equipment.
