Lessons Learned from Bad Media Equipment Containers

media equipmentThe most commonly given bits of wisdom when someone encounters a failure tend to sound something like “You learn more from your failures than from your successes.” While there’s definitely something to be said for learning from disaster, if you work in broadcast media you know that when it comes to your equipment, failure is rarely an acceptable option. When packaging or storing your equipment, getting it right the first and every time is vital. That’s why Advanced Packaging is here with a few lessons we’ve learned from watching other people’s mistakes with their broadcast media equipment.

Intro to Media Equipment Storage: Keeping Your Cool

It’s well-known that computers, electronic devices, and broadcasting equipment tends to generate a lot of heat when in use and equipment can easily malfunction or permanently break if it gets too hot. Even when not in use, if hot equipment is stored in a case that’s not properly ventilated or cooled, it can easily overheat and break. We’ve seen it happen and the look on a cameraman’s face when he pulls a melted lens out of a bag isn’t pretty. It’s best to store broadcast media equipment in protective cases that are specifically designed to reduce the temperature of their devices. Aluminum cases are excellent for this.

Media Equipment 201: Interior Matters

During transit, whether it’s on a plane or in the back of a truck, media equipment can take a substantial beating. Even if the exterior of a container is tough, if the interior isn’t sufficiently protected your media equipment could be damaged. Advanced Packaging’s media cases are made with custom designed foam interiors which offer complete protection from rattling, impacts, moisture, humidity and other forms of damage.
