John Harrington-WHAT WE USE- Cord Kit

Thursday, January 24, 2008

Here's a video segment on the Cord kit that we use. A transcription of the video is available after the jump.

Hands on instructional video on photography from Assignment Construct.

Hi, I’m John Harrington and we’re going to break out and break down the wide variety of equipment we use to deliver images to our clients. Next we are going to show you one of the equipment kits we use when we are traveling on assignment. Each kit is different and has a very specific purpose. So lets take a look.

So we have a multiple of these cord kits. This happens to be one; here we have a second cord kit. They are both in Versa-Flex cases. 

One of the things that we find ourselves doing a lot when we are working in an office environment with our lighting is just working from the outlets that are available.  More often than not those are not enough, in that case we take what we call our cord kits. We have several of these. Let me show you one of them.

In the cord kit are all types of power. We have power multipliers. We have tunnel tape.  One of the great things about tunnel tape is that it is not sticky in the middle but it is sticky on either side. Meaning that the cords can run in the middle with stickiness on both sides meaning the stickiness doesn’t get on the cords, but it goes over and provides a really nice warning to people who may be traversing a walking area.

All of the cords have on them my contact information, how long they are, and which cord kit they belong in.  Other cords are these really great cords that we got from Home Depot not only do they illuminate but they also have power in the middle of the cords and there are several outlets along the way so you are not worried about having to run multiple cords because you can pull power off of just this cord.

We have cords in varying distances; this one is a 15-foot cord versus a 100-foot here.  This is a 50-foot cord with a three way on the end. Of all variety of cords in the various different cord kits we have.  One of the great things about these cord kits is that one or two of these cord kits is all we need to get to the outlets we need to in any different environment that we are going to be in. This also ensures that we don’t blow any circuits because we might be pulling too much power.

So the cord kits are a real solution, and allow us to take cords only when we think we need them.

Below the video is a link to each of the segments, Let me know what you think!
