Assists Company’s Involvement with Mayweather-Pacquiao Fight, PGA, and More
June 10, 2015 – Burbank, CA – Bexel Sales offers the latest new and used professional broadcast products.
Representing nearly 100 product lines, Bexel Sales is the industry’s most comprehensive resource for the latest audio, video and fiber equipment sales. Recently the Sales group completed work on a major project with Sure Shot Teleproductions, Inc., the largest provider of combination HD production/satellite uplink trucks in North America.
When Sure Shot needed to build out a new broadcast mobile unit, they turned to Bexel to help them meet their goals and budget. Working with the Sales team, Sure Shot’s Chief Engineer, Scott Tucker, was able to not only reach his goals, but exceed them. Bexel recently sat down with Scott Tucker to get his unique perspective on the project and thoughts on working with Bexel Sales. Sure Shot recently launched a new 42 foot, broadcast video expando truck with a C band uplink on it, and I worked very closely with Bexel Sales to get the project done.
“We started out with our initial budget, but then the project kept growing as we had to turn it into a C band truck among other things. Unfortunately, while the project kept getting bigger, our budget didn’t. I started trying to determine ways we could maximize the money we had, and I considered buying “used” cameras and switchers, but what I found was already out of date or about to be obsolete.”
“I always stayed in touch with Bexel as a rental house, and one day I got a correspondence about equipment that had only been used at the World Cup. The gear was available for immediate purchase, and it was very different from what I had been seeing out in the marketplace. So I reached out to Bexel Sales, and we made everything work from there. The team worked very closely with us, and unbelievably, we got done under budget.”
“We saved so much with Bexel that we were actually able to splurge on some of the bells and whistles that are great to have in a broadcast mobile unit, and several things I was looking at for Phase Two of the build out we were able to include in Phase One.”
“Our newest truck is also our flagship unit, and it was showcased at NAB. We’ve already used it as a mobile production facility for the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight and several major PGA events, and was recently used for the NBA Finals as well. More than 50% of the equipment on the truck was purchased through Bexel, and it was all very lightly used. In fact, most of the equipment we got came in its original boxes. We didn’t even need to worry about the warranty. The manufacturers’ warranties were transferred over to us, and we had a 30-day Bexel Sales warranty as well.”
“Bexel is just impressive. With them, I can get something just as good as “new” at a fraction of the cost. In the future, I know that I can contact Bexel and they will work magic for me. And if they don’t have what I need, I know they’ll find it!”
