Thanks to everyone who joined us on Thursday, December 11, 2014 at our Burbank Headquarters for Band Pro's One World Open House 2014!

Each year we feature a cross section of the industry’s best new technology and this year was no different. Top broadcast and cinema equipment manufacturers lit up our tent, and great international cuisine & beverages were served.  A complete Exhibitor List is posted below.  Thanks to all of our participating manufacturers for helping make this year's event truly special.


New Products

Sony showcased their new VPLGTZ1 ultra short throw SXRD 4K projector featuring blue laser phosphor technology.  How short is "short throw"?  How about projecting 147" 4K at a distance of only 6.7 inches!

Canon offered up their highly anticipated Cine-Servo 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 Ultra-Telephoto Zoom Lens with Built-In 1.5x Extender for 35mm digital cine cameras. 

Convergent Design unveiled the new Odyssey7Q+ monitor/recorder, featurimg 4K/UHD video via HDMI and Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) recording.

AJA showcased their working, pre-release CION 4K/UHD camera that shoots directly to internal ProRes 4444.

Angénieux showed off the first Optimo Anamorphic 30-72 mm T4 2S zoom in the USA.

Newcomer Lentequip launched their new SafeTap, a smart D-Tap/P-Taps redesign.  SafeTap constantly monitors reverse polarity, voltage, and short circuits to keep your cameras safe.


The theme at Band Pro’s 2014 Open House and Expo was “Spaghetti Westerns.” The food was Italian inspired. Yes, there was spaghetti. The models in the hay-strewn camera shooting gallery were garbed in Franco Nero ponchos and Italian Western outfits. The center of attention was wonderful Enzo G. Castellari, Director of Keoma, One Dollar Too Many, Seven Winchesters for a Massacre, Go Kill and Come Back, the original Inglorious Bastards, numerous spaghetti westerns, macaroni combat films, and inspiration and friend of Quentin Tarantino.

Enzo graciously signed autographs for a devoted following of admirers at the Band Pro Open House. Amnon Band presented Enzo with a famous Frederick Remington bronze “The Bronco Buster.” An original is in the White House. When Theodore Roosevelt was presented with the statue in 1898, he said, “There could have been no more appropriate gift…” Enzo Castellari said, “But this is in the White House. I am overwhelmed. It is magnificent.” [FD Times 12/12/14 article]


Band Pro's tent exhibition space was transformed into a dynamic, interactive camera, recording, and workflow environment where products were displayed as they are actually used on set.  Some of the exclusive, original 4K content that was screened included Band Pro's 'Of Rushing Nowhere' shot on the Canon C500, and new 4K footage from legendary underwater cinematographer Bob Cranston.  Special unannounced guests and loads of raffle giveaways made this the perfect kick off to the holiday season.  If you were here, you know what I'm talking about.  If not, here's some photos from the day.
