The move to 4K is the biggest challenge faced by the live production industry since the advent of HD over a decade ago. And even though the majority of viewing is still in HD or even SD, demand for UHD – driven in part by a consumer market already hooked on 4K, HDR content from IP-based VOD providers such as Amazon and Netflix – is only increasing. This brings an unavoidable necessity for outside broadcast companies to be able to call upon the latest UHD technology – from cameras and lenses to production servers and monitors. In striving to support 4K live production by stocking a large and diverse 4K hire fleet, ES Broadcast Hire is helping to pioneer the UHD upgrade – and positioning itself as one of the UK and Europe’s leading 4K hire companies.
