London, UK (July 22, 2009)–UK film and video industry product supplier PEC has added Holophone surround microphones to its equipment roster.
Located in London’s Soho district, the heart of the UK’s motion picture industry, PEC has over 70 years experience in the production market. The company recently held a two-day demo session for industry professionals with Holophone, in conjunction with Sony and JVC, in London. After seeing the customer response to the company’s products, PEC decided to stock Holophone’s H4 SuperMINI camera mountable surround microphone as part of its rental equipment offerings. Other microphones in the Holophone line (H2-PRO, H3-D, and PortaMic 5.1) will be available upon request.
“PEC has identified an increased interest in surround sound recording in the area of the market where they’re working with budgets considerably smaller than those typically found on large Hollywood blockbusters,” says Derek Morgan, managing director of PEC. “With the introduction of Holophone products to its portfolio, PEC can now offer its customers access to this technology sooner. Also, Holophone’s microphones have a low learning curve so it’s an easy introduction into recording surround. “
“We feel that PEC carrying the H4 SuperMINI is a big step toward Holophone’s continued growth in the film market,” says Jonathan Godfrey, CEO of Holophone. “Surround Sound has been a film staple for many years but was always just a little out of reach for smaller projects due to cost. Having a top supplier to the film and video market carrying our mics will ensure that surround sound is accessible to all members of the film and video industry in the UK regardless of budget.”
