Valley Cottage, NY, August 7, 2007 --Camera Dynamics Inc., part of The Vitec Group, industry leader in camera support systems and accessories, announces a financing partnership with National City Media Finance, a division of National City Commercial Capital Company, LLC (NC4), to provide equipment financing to the broadcast and media industries.
This innovative program is customized for the Camera Dynamics brands: Vinten, Vinten Radamec, Sachtler, OConnor, Petrol, and Autoscript. It is available to accommodate a range of purchasers from individuals up to large media organizations throughout the United States.
The financing plan enables a buyer to amortize the investment in Camera Dynamics equipment over an extended period of time. As Director of Robotics Sales Gary Rotondelli explains, “In terms of larger project investments such as robotics installations, the buyer can see a return on the investment in three or four years. By employing our financial services program, the owner can offset savings to the monthly cost of the system.”
“We‘re very excited to offer more options and convenience to our clients. This financial program gives the small business professional as well as larger organizations a powerful new tool to either start up or expand their business without worrying about budget limitations,” says Bob Carr, President of Camera Dynamics, Inc.
“National City Media Finance, as part of one of the nation‘s largest financial institutions, combines financial strength with the knowledge and understanding of the broadcasting, entertainment and photographic industries to create unique financing programs,” says Russ Munson, Senior Vice President of National City Media Finance. “In essence, our programs are scalable and flexible, allowing media companies to match the monthly cost savings to a monthly expense over a 24 to 60 month period.”
NC4 is an affiliate of National City Corporation (NYSE: NCC), one of the nation's largest financial holding companies.
