Pushing remote broadcast boundaries
N/A Film and TV coverage as varied as the London 2012 Olympics and the BBCs Springwatch are raising the bar where viewer expectations are concerned.

TV Bay spoke to Bradley Engineering founder, David Bradley, about the latest additions to the companys portfolio and how they respond to remote camera technology trends. We go that extra mile, he explained. For instance, upgrading the camera but keeping the existing, durable housing means we can support our longstanding customers with up-to-date kit they know will last and last regardless of what they throw at it. Most recently weve been proud that our cameras have been used for coverage of Springwatch, the Queens Jubilee, the Olympic torch relay and the Games themselves.
