Tektronix, the market leader in broadcast video test, monitoring and analysis solutions, today announced a comprehensive Sales and Support programme for customers during the London 2012 Olympics. Aware that normal logistics will be challenged throughout the Games by traffic congestion, access and delivery issues, Tektronix have also enlisted the expertise and logistics support of Rental Partner ONSIGHT.
Tektronix Sales Director Nicki Fisher said; “Our customers will be offered a dedicated contact number for Technical and Warranty Support, immediate shipment of new purchases, and short-term rental solutions from ONSIGHT for the duration of the Olympics. Despite the best planning and preparation we know that broadcast requirements can change day-to-day. Tektronix and Rental Partner ONSIGHT offer customer’s flexibility should their circumstances change during the London Games to ensure full local support.”

The Lab & Post team is working on the full post production for the feature film, Breakfast with Jonny Wilkinson. Produced by Breakfast Films Limited with Rob Perren, the comedy is adapted from the successful play by the same name. The story focuses on a group of people watching the 2003 Rugby World Cup Final between England and Australia at their local Rugby Club.
We have been managing the data, captured in South London by Director Simon Sprackling. DoP Jonathan Iles says, “The film was shot using the RED Epic, giving us the ability to shoot 5K but importantly, a lot of slow motion still at such a high resolution. ONSIGHT was there to help us in every step of the way, offering daily reports on rushes and round the clock assistance.”

With the upcoming Jubilee celebrations and London 2012 fast approaching, what better time than now to feature a documentary on the capital’s colourful history and some of its key figures. A Picture of London is for the BBC (HD), examining the inspiration the streets and structures have brought to artists through both their beauty and grime.
ONSIGHT’s Camera Rental department supplied an ARRI ALEXA and Alura zoom lenses for last year’s shoot, filmed on location in London and featuring landmarks such as the River Thames and The Shard.
