Even the Blockbusters need effective communications! Find out why Two-Way Radio is essential to any production.

Communication and Planning are vital to produce Films and Television programmes.  Large teams of staff simultaneously work both together and individually to produce both the visual and audio aspects of the Film/TV programme. As such it is vital to have an efficient and effective Two-Way Radio (Walkie Talkie) infrastructure in place so everyone can communicate to one another on site.  Television and Film production can also have health and safety issues for staff members partaking in activities such as working at heights on roofs or scaffold with cameras or equipment or being in locations where communication is paramount.  Health and safety features on Two-Way Radios can help ensure workers are kept safe during film and Television production.
