BCII TV SELECTS REPLAY XD AS OFFICIAL POV CAMERA
Leading television Production Company known for reality, automotive and MMA programming will use Replay XD 1080 cameras to capture the action in vivid HD – from car racing to cage fighting and more.
Newbury Park, Calif. (September 15, 2011) – Brentwood Communications International Inc. (BCII), a leading television production company specializing in reality, documentary, automotive and branded entertainment programming, has chosen Replay XD1080 as its official POV camera for all its current production projects. The Los Angeles based production house, known for shows including American Trucker, Shark Fights, Overhaulin’, RIDES, Hot Rod TV and more, will use Replay XD 1080 high-definition cameras to film stunts, sports, in-car, time lapse and racing footage where normal film cameras cannot go, thanks to the Replay XD’s rugged construction, diminutive size and crystal clear image quality. BCII has also joined the Replay Pro Shooter Program, which provides product and technical support to professional filmmakers.
“As a long-time fan of their programming, I’m thrilled that BCII has chosen the Replay XD1080 to capture critical shots in some of the coolest new shows,” said Replay XD founder John Spar. “This little camera was designed to offer a stunning HD image and enough professional-level features to suit the needs of the best production teams in the industry, but is packed with so much value and is so easy to use it’s also a great fit for the average consumer or amateur filmmaker. We are proud to invite BCII into the Replay XD Pro Shooter Program.”
Seemingly tailor-made to BCII’s projects, the Replay XD1080 features a water-resistant, hard anodized, rugged aluminum housing for extreme adventures and is the smallest and lightest full HD action camera on the market. It is packed with pro-level audio, live uncompressed HDMI video out in full HD, video playback, external audio line-in, time-lapse photography, and highly-configurable image and camera settings. The system packs a crystal clear 135 degree field of view lens and 5-megapixel image sensor, and will allow the use of widely available lenses, filters & polarizers.
”Over the past 15 years, BCII has used just about every camera on the market in our quest to tell stories from a unique point of view,” said BCII CEO and Executive Producer Bud Brutsman. “Starting today, John and his team at Replay XD are going to take our capabilities to the next level. We already have six series television projects that plan to use Replay XD on-set between now and the end of 2011, including everything from in-car cameras for the Baja 1000 off-road race to helmet-mounted cameras on wind turbine installers in the North Sea. With Replay XD, our access to great stories and our ability to deliver them just got better.”
