(Maywood, New Jersey--November 6, 2013) Smaller events require their own custom-tailored mobile production solutions, and the Utah-based provider Videolines has built up a dedicated following in the Western states for its cost-effective approach. To produce world-class video for college and high school athletics, conferences, and more, Videolines depends on Ikegami HDK-79E and HDK-77EX HD multi-format CCD camera systems.

Videolines has 16 total Ikegami cameras available across its HD-1, HD-2, and HD-3 mobile units. "I've always preferred the look of Ikegami cameras," says Dale Rhodes, Owner of Videolines. "My clients always appreciate the images they produce, which makes them a perfect fit for our streamlined way of working. We always strive to keep the costs down, but keep the quality up, so you can't tell the difference between what we produce and what comes out of a ten million dollar truck."

Both the Ikegami HDK-79E and HDK-77EX are economical portable HD cameras, employing CCD imaging sensors. "The colorimetry of the Ikegami cameras is very pure," Rhodes observes. "The way the cameras are set up makes them extremely easy to match. We use a lot of freelance operators, and our team always finds them intuitive to use - that's definitely an asset when you want to get going fast and start delivering a great picture right away."

Dependability is always a top priority for mobile production companies, and it's a proven attribute for Videoline's Ikegami cameras. "Our HDK-79E and HDK-77EX's have been highly reliable," says Rhodes. "These cameras are constantly being bounced around, subjected to heat, humidity, rain, and snow, and they keep on going. If they do take a serious hit, Ikegami's service performs a fast turnaround and gets it right back out to us."

Travelling with Ikegami cameras, Videolines has an elite front end that makes every production broadcast quality, no matter the size or scope. "The cameras are what makes the presentation," Dale Rhodes confirms. "Our Ikegami cameras produce great looking video, and they're rock solid. The next truck we build will have Ikegami on board."
