Through their joint partnership, Bexel will have six 3D camera rigs, four from 3Ality Digital and two from Parallax3, all equipped with the Panasonic AK-HC1500 1080i/720p HD multi-purpose cameras. These rigs will be able to be paired with many of Bexel’s flypack systems, enabling customers to shoot multi-camera productions in 3D. Bexel is also outfitting its 53-foot edit trailer, BBS1, as a mid-sized 3D production environment for those producers who need a workspace or a viewing area for their 3D production. The trailer will incorporate additional Panasonic professional 3D products, including AG-3DA1 Full HD 3D camcorders and advanced 25” BT-3DLH2500 production monitors. Beginning this month, Bexel will offer the truck and its services on a rental basis.
“Our partnership with Panasonic will provide our customers with an array of cost-effective 3D tools,” says Jerry Gepner, chief executive officer, Vitec Services Division and president of Bexel. “For 3D to truly reach its potential, production companies have to start employing it across a wide range of content, not just major events. Until now, operating costs and scalability were two of the factors preventing that from becoming a reality.”
