PRG has stocked its three PRG Video locations with a full inventory of state-of-the art equipment, including native high definition (HD) cameras and projectors as well as switchers that perform seamless transitions between standard and HD formats.

Top-of-the-line equipment available from PRG Video includes the Snell & Wilcox Kahuna switching system, Di-VentiX high-resolution switcher, Grass Valley LDK cameras, Panasonic PT-7700U and Digital Projection, Inc., 12000DSX, 35 HD and 22K 40HD video projectors, and the new Element Labs Versa Tube HD.
