Pinewood Studios, 14 December 2012 – Tiffen International Ltd. is now offering Transvideo on-camera picture monitors for hire. The business is being run by the London Filter Company, a part of Tiffen International at Pinewood Studios. Tiffen has a long working relationship with Transvideo as its monitors are often included with Steadicam rigs.
Terry Carey, Managing Director, Tiffen International, comments, “We have been working with Transvideo for many years and this new rental business is a perfect fit with our Tiffen optical filter hire operation run by London Filter Company that is now with us at Pinewood. This, along with the connection through Steadicam, means we are already up to speed with the products and in daily contact with the right customers.”
“Tiffen is a natural choice for us,” says Jacques Delacoux of Transvideo. “Our two companies have been working together for many years with our monitors and video assist equipment, so we know Tiffen very well. They are perfect for us as they are very involved and well connected with both the cinematography and videography businesses throughout the UK.”
Initial hire stock will include the popular multi-format CineMonitorHD Evolution SuperBright HD 8-inch and 10-inch picture monitors. The range will be expanded in 2013.
