D2 Productions began operations in 2008 as a full
service production company specializing in the live streaming event production,
with strong specialization in
multicamera sports, education, concerts, corporate event production.
We offer a wide array of services, including single and multicamera field
production, post-production from our edit suites, live and on-demand streaming
media services, along with a fully equipped production studio in our
During the past two years, we’ve expanded into full
mobile production, offering an extensive array
of live and live-to-tape field video production services with our mobile HD
production units, “Genesis” and “Zeppelin,” as well as other multicamera and
single camera high-definition production systems. We have a full range
of mobile production for exterior shoots and rackmounted equipment for
locations where a production truck isn’t feasible.
When we decided to get into the mobile production truck
business, we knew that we had to have equipment that would stand up to the
multiple challenges presented in non-studio environments. We also wanted gear
with good that would allow us to maintain our high production values and equipment
that was user-friendly when it came to setup and operation.
For us, Hitachi stood out with strong performing image
quality, build solid, and with controls and buttons where a cameraman wants
them to be. We have been impressed since
the day we launched “Genesis,” our first mobile vehicle.
With our truck constantly on the go, when we pull out
the gear, shoot the event, pack them up —and often times, in extreme weather
conditions—and the same, day-in and day-out,our cameras have to perform. And our Hitachi cameras have held up very
well under these extreme circumstances, heat, humidity and moisture.
With our second truck “Zeppelin” we
now have a 40-foot production facility and we have again selected Hitachi
trucks have the same complement of five Hitachi Z-HD5000's with CU-HD500 CCU's
operating with SMPTE fiber and RU-1000VR RCU's. Each truck also carries
four Hitachi HDF-700H studio viewfinders and three VF-402 ENG viewfinders.
A CAMERA AND COMPANY
YOU CAN RELY ON
We’ve been pleased by the camera’s
performance, quality and ability to “take the heat.” We have also experienced from
Hitachi the same “high-touch” experience that we see ourselves providing to our
customers. We associate the cameras with the people at Hitachi. When we’re able
to associate the camera with its people, this lends a level of confidence
because we know there are people standing behind their product.
The Hitachi brand is extremely well
represented by the people there and it’s not a faceless brand like so many
others; we associate our cameras with the personalities of the technical and
sales people who stand behind them. We couldn’t be happier with how Hitachi
cameras have integrated into our productions and how the Hitachi team has been
there to make sure that integration has been smooth.
Hitachi cameras roll out real easy, and Hitachi team
members are there to make sure that everything comes out okay. At D2, we have an uncommon belief in a thing called
respect—respect for you, and for your bottom line. Hitachi is a good fit for
