GTC sponsors Camera Corps acquire SIS Live specialist cameras

Vitec Videocom, a division of The Vitec Group plc,has expanded its Camera Corps business with the incorporation of assets from SIS Live Special Cameras (formerly BBC Special Cameras). The offering will bring customers a range of specialist cameras that can cover everything from live sport to royal occasions and Red Arrow aerial displays.

SIS Live Special Cameras’ formidable inventory and specially designed gear are perfect additions to Vitec Videocom’s global services; trading will take place under the Camera Corps brand. The move will also complement Vitec Videocom’s other services groups – The Camera Store and Autoscript in the UK, and Bexel in the USA.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to deliver innovative and unique solutions to our customers that give audiences views they’ve never seen, or even dreamt of” says Matt Danilowicz, Vitec Videocom CEO. “We can now capture amazing images anywhere – from the mast of a yacht, to the underside of a bobsled, to the stump of a cricket match.”  

Well known within the Special Cameras portfolio are Stump Cam used on cricket pitches all over the world, and on-board cameras in high-profile events such as the America’s Cup yachting and Isle of Mann TT racing. Also in the portfolio are Plunge Cam, which adds a new dimension to diving as it follows high-board divers into the pool and underwater, and the Halibut Underwater HD tracking camera.

The assets include the exclusive camera mounting systems used for state events inside listed buildings, such as St Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, Kings College London, and St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

SIS Live Special Cameras Manager Paul McNeil and Commercial Bid Manager Barry Parker will join the UK Camera Corps team in Byfleet. Paul McNeil wrote about the SIS Live involvement in the Americas Cup for the most recent issue of Zerb. Read Paul's article about the Americas Cup cameras.
