Flexible, Secure and Efficient Shared Storage System for Rent

Our Facilis TerraBlock rental system has just come back from a long term rental and our clients were so thrilled with the capabilities and performance that they decided to buy their own permanent system. We just completed that installation for them, and it’s been gratifying to see them leverage this system for added efficiency AND creativity.

Way back in 1992, we were the first rental house in the country to rent mobile computer-based edit systems and it’s something we’ve excelled in ever since. Over the past few years, as workflows have gotten more complicated and collaboration in Post has become more prevalent, we’ve found that small shared storage systems (this one is 48TB) have become more and more necessary.

The TerraBlock shared storage system is perfect for smaller workgroups that are built to grow. Editors, colorists, and producers will be much more efficient, with their media and projects easy to access, share, and find. Safety is heightened also, as it becomes so much easier to back up the media since it is not spread out across multiple workstations.

Rent this shared storage system if you’re temporarily scaling up for a larger project and you’re looking to give your post team a flexible, secure and efficient environment for the media.

Didn’t your mother always tell you to share?

Now Renting Production Supplies along with Expendable Sales

At Rule Boston Camera we have always listened to the needs of our clients, and we take very seriously our role as being the center of production in New England.  As technology changes and the equipment needs of our clients evolves, so, too, does our equipment inventory.

In addition to the latest and greatest cameras, lenses and accessories, over the years we have been asked to supply the staples that are essential to production life: tables, chairs, pop-up tents, wardrobe racks, safety cones, etc.

These Production Supplies often take a back seat to our more glamorous rental items — but, try eating your lunch on top of an ARRI Mini or hanging the talent’s wardrobe from a MOVI Pro and this will help you realize just how essential these production items can be.

We are constantly on the lookout for equipment that satisfies the next level of production need, and with this in mind, we always welcome your requests. We can generally acquire what you need within a very short turnaround, just reach out to any of our rental agents with your requests.  In addition to rental items, Production Outfitters carries a large line of production expendables for purchase — from our very popular gel by the foot, to camera tape and spring clamps, we have most things to get your production started off right.
