Vivid: Leading the way in Portable Broadcast Units

Vivid's multi camera Flypacks have been designed with the user in mind: modular, fast to rig and engineered to full broadcast standards. As every job is unique, we have a range of units to give you the set-up you need, to provide a great and fully-scalable working environment.


Providing bespoke engineering
solutions is one of our strengths

Our in-house Engineering Team can step into a project at any stage – whether to lead or lend support to an existing production. Recces, site surveys, system design, power provision, H&S, risk assessment and on-the-day engineering management.

Every job has its own technical drawings prepared and specced. Each system is meticulously prepped for each job.


Whatever the stage of production, we come in and work alongside teams to provide the support you need. From corporate clients looking to broadcast an event, to those who need only kit and support crew. Making sure both crew and kit are the right fit for the job.

"A very big thank you for a wonderfully smooth day doing the Stereophonics. The layout of the monitors was great and pics looked terrific...I was very happy with the results: a fantastic gig all round. Please thank your hard-working team"
Director, Janet Fraser-Crook

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.
