Montreal-based production equipment rental/service/studio company département caméra has purchased five Nipros LS 750/850 GTS camera systemization rigs from Ramsey, NJ-based Samaserve.
The camera-agnostic, Nipros LS 750/850 GTS systems, HDS 300 camera system build-up rigs, HDF 700 SK monitors and related accessories, will give the company the ability to outfit almost any camera for any type of shoot, including simultaneous, uncompressed 4K and HD projects.
Company founder Jacques Lamontagne visited the Nipros/Samaserve booth at NAB where he saw a live demo of the Nipros LS 750 supporting a Red 4K Epic Dragon.
“We provide production technology to a wide range of TV, feature film and documentary production companies, and we have been looking for a highly flexible system, capable of working with virtually any camera,” Lamontagne said. “Nipros has developed the most versatile camera system we’ve seen. It enables us to maximize the potential of every camera in our inventory, from Sony to Canon, ARRI and Red. The fact that the system is 4K-ready now, makes it an even stronger long-term investment.”
