“Whenever our customers need to shoot and produce mission critical video at once in a lifetime events like the Sochi Winter and Paralympic Games, we do whatever we can to ensure that our imaging equipment performs reliably and that we’re supporting them as completely as we can,” said Thom Calabro, director of marketing and product development for the Optical Devices Division of FUJIFILM North America Corporation. “For this reason, we’ve established a technical service centre staffed by knowledgeable technicians to communicate with our customers during both events.”
