We are pleased to announce that as of this week, Panavision, Panalux and Direct Digital facilities in London are once again supporting equipment rentals. Additionally, global locations including Paris, Warsaw, Prague, Cape Town and Johannesburg, as well as Australia and New Zealand, have begun a staged reopening and the resumption of services. We place the health, safety and well-being of our employees, clients and communities as our top priority, and our return to operations is being conducted in accordance with the best practices established by the World Health Organisation as well as local governments and officials.

The Panavision group is committed to supporting the safe rental of camera, lighting and grip equipment while continuing to deliver the high quality of service and collaboration that you have always experienced with us. As we reopen, you will find:

  • A continued dedication to innovation, ensuring we can support the challenges of social distancing in our facilities, on set and on location.

  • Extensive cleaning and sanitation programmes for our equipment and facilities.

  • Guidance to our clients on maintaining equipment cleaning practices on set. 

  • Carefully planned personnel and hygiene procedures to protect the wellbeing of our staff and clients. 

  • Alignment with industry and health, safety and environmental leaders to ensure consistency with other equipment providers.

Additionally, we have established new Health & Safety Committees that will continue to review and adapt our operations and policies to ensure that all guidelines and procedures remain up to date.
