  • Canford

    Canford

    Canford is probably best known for its catalogue and website listing over 15,000 items aimed at those who use or install audio video and communications equipment. The sheer breadth of that target market has meant that Canford has had both the pleasure and responsibility of serving hundreds of thousands of clients since its formation in 1976.

    From the earliest days those clients have ranged from major national broadcasters to one-man businesses and from remote island based customers to a surprising number of FTSE 100 companies. The expectations of those large organisations have meant that Canford has had to maintain a remarkably high standard of customer service and compliance since the beginning. Despite its growth over those years, Canford has always attempted to maintain a very personal approach to its customers and takes great care to maintain that ethos. Of course it is now possible to buy via the internet but if you want to call and talk, you will not be confronted by automated responses, only fellow humans!

    Meet the team

    Canford's 40th CelebrationsOur people make the difference, and together form the team who make Canford. Together we strive to design, develop and manufacture distinctive products, deliver great customer service, create industry leading technical publications and provide customers with unrivalled support.

    Manufacturing and distribution

    At its inception Canford was a hybrid mix of manufacturing and distribution and this continues. No one competes in the scale and complexity of the Canford proposition which is why the business is successful in meeting customer needs in more than 90 countries. Even so, the team still regards itself as having all the characteristics of a small business in terms of the personal approach to their customers but having all the confidence of knowing that the brand offers the quality of product and after sales support of a mature and trusted organisation.

  • Cooke Optics

    Cooke Optics

    For over 100 years, Cooke has been at the centre of the filmmaking business. We've been listening to the community of which we are a part. We lead by introducing new products such as /i Technology, and we remember our success is built on a simple idea - do what the filmmaker needs.

     

    Our factory in Leicester, England has generations from the same family working side by side. That experience is un-beaten anywhere. We manufacture a full range of primes and zooms for 35mm, digital and Super 16mm photography, plus a range of large format stills lenses.

    We know our customers, and they know us, as individuals. Our rental partners do their training next to the craftsman who built their lenses. There are no barriers. We meet our customers at our factory, at trade events, distributors and rental houses and of course on the set.

    We're intolerant when it comes to tolerances. We research continuously to drive innovation. Our lenses are dependable and practical in use on the set; our optics superb. The lenses are straightforward to maintain – which is why so many rental facilities carry our products. Our manufacturing and testers keep going until we get each lens within our very tight specification. We get it right, whatever it takes.

     



     

    At the heart of what makes Cooke special is the "Cooke Look". The Cooke Look® is about the science of creating beautiful images for the motion picture industry.

     

    As a result, for over a century, cinematographers have chosen Cooke lenses for a smooth roundness and dimensionality to the picture and for the velvety skin tones that flatter.

  • Glensound

    Divine is a new concept in powered network audio monitors. Housed in a hardwearing fully sealed diecast enclosure, it is powered by Power over Ethernet (PoE) and boasts the very latest low-noise  high-output class D power amplifier.  Uniquely, a priority system is provided to allow one (or more) of the inputs to automatically duck another, useful for monitoring one source whilst listening to another when audio is present, such as sending show relay to theatre dressing rooms but having the stage manager’s call and building fire alarm take precedence when they’re active.

    For a small, high quality, network audio intercom, at a price significantly less than the market leaders, look at the Glensound Beatrice system.  This Dante®/AES67 system offers beltpacks, desktop and rack units, in 1 to 6 channel versions – even featuring a bright red phone!

  • Magic Video Box

    Magic Video Box

    Magic Video Box creates eye contact in films.

    As Flexible Films, we have been making films since 2002 for NGOs, charities, businesses and NHS England. Five years ago, we designed the Magic Video Box because we needed to film subjects looking directly into the camera lens. There wasn’t anything on the market that fitted our budget and needs so we decided to make our own. We have since filmed hundreds of great interviews and presentations and launched the Magic Video Box in October 2019.

    We have been supported by PEW Electricals, a client who was so impressed – they offered to help with manufacturing, distribution and marketing. The Magic Video Box has been used in Straight Talking, a SKY documentary shot in Namibia and featuring Ant Middleton and Liam Payne. It is also being used in Channel 5’s Police Code Zero: Officers Under Attack.

    As well as creating compelling footage where the audience feel they are being directly addressed, the Magic Video Box also enhances the filming experience. The box is beautiful in design resembling a 1920s film box and sits in front of the camera. Depending on the angle of the box, the Talent sees a reflection of either a scrolling script or the interviewer’s face. They quickly relax and this allows for open and intimate dialogue that can last for as along as needed. There’s something quite special about talking to someone through the box.

    Feedback has been very positive with people saying they have found the Magic Video Box ‘fun, simple and easy’ to be filmed by. The films as a result are engaging and impactful. We have found in particular with the work we do that the result really is magic.

    In 2006, RED Digital Cinema began a revolution with the 4K RED ONE® digital cinema camera. By 2008, the camera that changed cinema also began to change the world of stills. RED’s DSMC® (Digital Still and Motion Camera) system allows the same camera being used to shoot features like "The Hobbit" trilogy and "Gone Girl" — as well as the Emmy-winning "House of Cards" — to also be used to shoot covers for magazines such as "Vogue" and "Harper's Bazaar". In 2014, RED entered the broadcast space with the introduction of the REDCAST™ Module that allows streaming live 4K while recording 6K R3D masters.

    RED continues to innovate with its recent debut of the newest members of the RED DRAGON family, the RED RAVEN, SCARLET-W and WEAPON cameras. These cameras combine compact and lightweight design with cutting edge performance, and the 6K WEAPON includes an option to upgrade to a RED DRAGON 8K VV sensor at a later date. Additionally, all of these cameras are capable of simultaneous on-board recording of REDCODE RAW and Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD/HR. All RED cameras are built around a modular foundation that gives the flexibility of full customization for each shoot.

  • GTC- The Guild of Television Camera Professionals

    GTC- The Guild of Television Camera Professionals

    The GTC was formed in 1972 and now has almost 1,400 members worldwide, working in all aspects of television and the wider industry including corporate and online. In 2016 the International Association of Wildlife Filmmakers became affiliated with the GTC, to include those specialising in wildlife and nature filming.

    We are a non-profit making organisation, run by a voluntary council of camera professionals. The GTC is financed partly by members' subscriptions, but also by considerable sponsorship from a number of equipment manufacturers and suppliers. As a result, the GTC offers a channel for manufacturers to consult with working camerapeople when designing new equipment.

    Our aim is to preserve the status of those working professionally with cameras and to establish, uphold and advance standards and expertise within our industry. To this end the Guild runs workshops for its members, a lively forum to share knowledge and many other benefits including special rates on Public Liability Insurance.

    The GTC produces two publications: Zerb twice a year, and GTC In Focus four times per year.
