We believe that flypacks are a tool of choice that can provide a real advantage to your production.

They can offer a flexible approach, get the gallery close to the action and enable the kind of set-up and operating space that could only fit in a triple expanding truck - without blowing the budget or the parking spaces.


Facilities for real

Vivid Broadcast formed in 2005 as an independent company with a small but experienced technical and creative team. A decade later, we are still passionate about the business and consider it a real privilege to provide multi-camera OB facilities to our corporate clients and broadcasters worldwide. In 2014 we found a new base for our growing OB Units and moved from our Horsham base to leafy Salfords, near Gatwick in Surrey.
