Sony’ s recent commission by a Russian Sports Broadcaster, required Outside Broadcast (OB) vehicles built to an unusually high specification, for use in forthcoming prestige winter sports events. Because of CP Cases existing relationship and expertise, they persuaded the client to opt for CP Cases over their usual supplier.
Ian Lainsbury, CP Cases manufacturing said: “The client wanted to have inter changeable removable lids on each end of the cases and racks. All of our cases are handmade and due to the nature of the 2mm rigidised aluminium we use, there can be a fraction of a mm difference between each case. It required a great deal of skill and experience of working with this material to achieve the required accuracy.”
CP Cases also delivered a selection of custom machined foam inserts fitted into cabinet drawers for other sensitive equipment when in transit.
The AluCurve case, traditionally used by the broadcast media because of its strength and lightweight qualities provided the solution. A suite of AluCurve cases in 5 different sizes and configurations were custom-made for the trucks including:
• 19” electronics racks
• Cases with bespoke foam inserts
