NEP Visions Celebrates 30 Years of Innovative Outside Broadcast Facilities
Visions has consistently led the way in technological advances, delivering the first digital truck in the UK and building its first HD truck in 2002; HD1 was used for Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Slane Castle concert, the first ever full HD shoot in Europe. Other Visions firsts include capturing Wimbledon in 3D for the BBC in 2011, and the ground-breaking live 4K broadcast of War Horse for the National Theatre earlier this year.
The technical successes it has achieved are a result of constant research and collaboration with clients, enabling Visions to deliver trucks that offer practicalities of space, set-up and power requirements, state-of-the-art production equipment, and comfortable, streamlined working environments. The company also refines and redevelops its flypacks regularly for overseas projects or events where a truck is impractical; Visions’ flypacks have been used on six Olympic Games and the War Horse event, among many others.
Steve Jenkins, Managing Director, NEP UK, said, “Over our 30 years we have worked on many historic events that will live long in the memory. However, the things I am most proud of are our longstanding relationships with our clients, the dedication of our talented staff, our readiness to learn and harness new technologies, and our passion to deliver the best possible service for our clients. As we look to the future, we will continue to be an agile organisation, happy to embrace new ideas and to challenge the norm.”
