Hampshire based Aerial & helicopter filming specialist Flying Pictures has ordered another Marshall 7” V-LCD70XHB-3GSDI monitor from UK distributor Cache Media. Flying Pictures is the world leader in the provision of aerial & helicopter filming services for feature films, commercials, television, live broadcast events and surveillance.

Flying Pictures’ Aerial Director of photography and Head of Camera Department, John Marzano (BA Hons. GBCT) explained how he found the perfect monitor for his needs: “I needed a lightweight monitor that was small yet rugged and tough and the Marshall 7” monitors seemed to fit the bill. Cache Media supplied our first one some time ago and since then we have bought many many more. The Marshall V-LCD70XHB-3Gs are neat and compact, they can be flipped to work upside down and they will run off a 12 volt supply. I wanted a good quality image and they provide that along with all the picture formats including 3G.”

The latest model supplied to Flying Pictures is the Marshall V-LCD70XHB-3GSDI, a high brightness monitor with integrated 3G-SDI loop-through. Major features include cast metal front panel, adjustable backlight and markers, manual gamma adjustment, Image Flip, 1/4″-20 mounting on all sides, and a robust power switch.

Cache Media MD Stuart Cameron added: “Like many of our clients, Flying Pictures have very individual needs and our role is more than just a supplier; we strive to provide the advice and technical backup that an operation like theirs needs.”

For more than 30 years Flying Pictures has worked on hundreds of films, commercials and TV productions including the recent releases: “World War Z”, “Fast & Furious 6″, “Star Trek Into Darkness”, “Welcome to the Punch” and “Skyfall”. At the time of writing John and his team are in Hong Kong filming a commercial for Nissan and will soon start work on a new Ridley Scott film ‘Exodus’.
