We built our rental inventory based on the needs of clients, offering the most popularly requested equipment available.
When you rent from Broadcast Rentals there is a confidence factor built-in knowing that everything is covered. All equipment is checked when it returns and double-checked when it is scheduled to go out on a rental. When a client rents from us, we make every effort to cover all of the details. We "put ourselves in the clients' shoes", anticipating the extras that you may need for your rental including items such as cables, adapters, extra batteries, etc.
We are ready to assist you at any level of your production or event; from equipment set-ups to multi-camera shoots.

We welcome the opportunity to work with you. Contact us with your needs and we will do everything that we can to supply the equipment that fulfills those needs.
Professional handheld camcorder records 4K using the XAVC format on to XQD solid state memory cards
The PXW-Z100 uses Exmor R™ CMOS sensors capable of 4K resolution (4096 x 2160) at 60 fps or 50fps, while weighing under 3 kg even with a 4K-compatible high-performance G lens™ mounted. The recording format is XAVC, which was first used in the PMW-F55 digital cinema camera. As with the F55, 4K 60p 4:2:2 10-bit recording is possible at a high bit rate of 500Mbps or 600 Mbps. QFHD (3840 x 2160) and HD (1920 x 1080) resolutions, which have high compatibility with 4K TV, can also be selected.
For extended recording, XAVC LongGOP (QFHD 4:2:0 8-bit / Full HD 4:2:2 10-bit) and AVCHD are supported via firmware upgrades. As the PXW-Z100 can be used in the same way as conventional professional handy-type cameras, 4K content can be recorded by a minimal number of staff. In addition, during editing for a HD project, 4K source material provides significant additional creative options.
Sony’s PXW-Z100 is a professional camcorder designed to expand the range of 4K recording possibilities even in low-budget environments.
Professional XDCAM HD422 handheld camcorder with broadcast HD picture quality
The PMW-150 is a compact camcorder with three 1/3-inch-type Full-HD sensors. High-quality, Full HD MPEG HD422 at 50 Mbps recording capability in MXF format – widely accepted in broadcasting stations and production houses – helps boost user creativity in many different applications, including news gathering and documentary production.
Full control of shooting parameters for high quality acquisition
Independent focus, zoom, and iris rings enable precise shooting in many circumstances. In addition, by using the CBK-WA01 optional wi-fi adaptor, iris, zoom, and focus can be controlled remotely – ideal when using the camcorder at a distance. Also, genlock In and timecode In/Out interfaces simplify multi – camera configurations.
With a new, advanced 1/3″ 2.2-megapixel 3-chip imager featuring Ultra Luminance Technology (U.L.T.), the HPX370 delivers exceptional video performance for master-quality HD production. The shoulder-mount camcorder offers 10-bit, 4:2:2, full 1920 x 1080-resolution AVC-Intra recording with impressive levels of sensitivity and an interchangeable lens. The AVC-Intra codec is unrivaled for its full-raster, 10-bit, 4:2:2 sampling with none of the inherent compromises of 8-bit, long GOP and 4:2:0 recording. The HPX370 provides the ultra reliability of a solid-state design and the faster speed of a file-based workflow.
The HPX370 utilizes a 20-bit digital signal processor and high-resolution 3-MOS imagers, enhanced with U.L.T., which boosts the sensors’ performance to rival the image quality and sensitive of ½” imagers. The new U.L.T. sensor results in marked improvements in sensitivity, measured at F10. These high levels of sensitivity and image quality have been achieved with a new high-sensitivity photodiode and low-noise pixel transistor, both based on low-noise analog process technology. The same levels of sensitivity and image production that characterize the interlace mode are now possible in the progressive mode courtesy of Progressive Advanced Processing (P.A.P.), a 3D adaptive processing technology.
With the flexibility of an interchangeable lens, the HPX370 can be used with 1/3″ to 2/3″ lens adapters for use with existing 2/3″ zoom and prime lenses. The camera offers a broad range of creative features including variable frame rates, advanced gamma functions including a new Cine film-like gamma, Chromatic Aberration Compensation (CAC), built-in scan reverse, Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) function, waveform and vector scope display and focus assist tools. The HPX370 also comes equipped with flash band detection and compensation software built-in for improved CMOS performance.
