Drones and Pilots
A new addition to our rental equipment range are a series of DJI drones including a fleet of DJI Inspire 2 drones and the heavy lift DJI Matrice that can be wet or dry hired. With our own in house qualified pilots we are able to provide expert maintenance and testing of our UAV fleet prior to shoots.
Broadcast Engineering Services
Tshed is able to offer a broad range of design, manufacturing and fabrication services through our network of contractors and suppliers catering to the full spectrum of equipment manufacturing processes.
Over the last decade Tshed has planned and managed several completed projects from concept through to research and development and final manufacture for the BBC amongst other broadcasters and independent production companies.
Where possible prototyping is undertaken to bring a proposed design to a stage that it can be field tested and further refinements made before final product manufacture. A belief in thorough product testing before sending equipment on location is a critical part of the R & D process
“With the ability to be mounted on a range of craft, we found the cineflex jib to be both highly versatile and robust – keeping us filming even in rough seas.”

“A camera trap is sometimes the only way to film rare and elusive animals and the Tshed traps allowed me to do so reliably, while still providing cinematic quality results, no matter the conditions.”
