Incorporated June 1982 (the same year as Channel 4). One of ECC's founders was a regular freelance cameraman at C4's Charlotte Street Studio. The company has always provided high quality video shooting units at economical rates. It was one of the few video facilities in London equipped with Sony Portable 1in C-format instead of U-matic. This attracted prestigious clients wanting genuine broadcast video.
cameraman John Tarby still enjoys shooting for most of the
company's clients who appreciate his conservative approach
which favours award winning cinematography and precision
engineering over sloppy, grabbed video. His excellent
portraiture has been applied to a host of celebrities. John
has shot royalty, prime ministers, rock stars, supermodels,
world-class sportsmen and CEOs. They all survived to appear
on tv or in blue chip corporate videos.
His assistant of many years, Mayyasa Al-Malazi, is a
talented video journalist who has travelled the world with
her DVcam producing stories for good and noble causes.
Purchase of a Media 100 work station has also allowed them
to research picture quality for new media applications: CD
video encoding, DVD video and webstreaming.
