PRG Establishes VER Camera Spot in Brooklyn, NY
PRG and its division, VER Camera, have opened a new camera prep facility in Brooklyn, New York. With an eye to Brooklyn and the surrounding media community, the new 25,000 square foot facility is designed to meet the unique needs of film, scripted and unscripted television, sports, music, special events and live broadcast production professionals working in the New York area.
Located on the third floor at 147 41st Street, in the Industry City complex, the well-equipped facility includes camera check-out bays, an oversized freight elevator, and a convenient ground floor loading dock. The easily accessible location also provides clients with savvy, factory-trained camera prep staff, experienced lens technicians and camera engineers, as well as 24/7 tech support.
Clients have access to one of the world’s largest inventories of professional motion picture and television cameras, lenses, and support gear. Whether the need is for ARRI, RED, Sony, Panasonic or other specialty cameras for a feature film or episodic, a dozen camcorders for reality programming, an array of LED walls for an Enhanced Environment, a 35Live! 4K cine-style package, or other production challenges, the Brooklyn facility, and expert team is at the ready.
“We love Brooklyn and the creative vibe that’s all-around”, says Carl Cook, VP of Television & Film. “We understand that this is not a one size fits all business. That’s why we offer such a diverse array of the finest motion picture equipment and support it with our experienced staff who really get what it takes to meet our clients’ specialty requirements. From small productions to major features that benefit from our global network, we plan to become a valuable asset of the Brooklyn production community.”
PRG acquired VER in August 2018. The combined service offering of the two brands is the most comprehensive and technologically advanced in the film, television and broadcast markets today.
