We’d all love to be able to keep our film production equipment in top notch condition, but unfortunately the industry’s realities aren’t always conducive to this desire. As much as we might like the idea of gleaming, ‘as-new’ rigs, lighting setups and editing suites, the challenges of each project tend to put a lot of strain on even the most well cared-for items. From regular use through to dust and bad weather, there are countless ways that equipment can become damaged and worn.
When performance is affected, this starts to become a very serious issue. After all, without the right equipment, it’s impossible to complete work, and that’s bad whether you’re working on a commercial job or bringing a personal project to life. The best way to ensure you’re protected is to invest in equipment with extensive warranties, and one of the best brands out there for this peace of mind is AJA.
AJA has backed its entire line of mini-converters with a five year warranty.
AJA’s extensive warranties
AJA produces everything from 4K production cameras to i/o cards, and the brand is favoured by enthusiasts and professionals alike. One of the company’s most well-known product lines is its selection of video mini-converters, which can be used in a wide range of applications to make sure that the right type of signal is being output. The uses of these mini-converters extend to everything from on-set monitoring to live broadcast, which reinforces how important it is for them to be reliable.
Recognising this, AJA has backed its entire line of mini-converters (and many other products) with a five year warranty, much longer than the two or three years you’d typically get from other brands. Of course, you always hope that a warranty never has to be used, and that your equipment will work without problems until you decide to upgrade. Even so, you can’t put a price on the safety that an extensive warranty provides, especially in an industry where deadlines are critical and time is of the essence.
An advanced replacement policy
It’s one thing to have an extensive warranty, but it’s quite another to be on set and unable to shoot due to equipment failure. To get things back on track, you’ll need to locate a replacement right away.
To that end, AJA has an advanced replacement policy, which means that they’ll ship you a new unit right away, rather than waiting for the faulty one to be returned. This policy sets AJA apart from the competition, and reinforces just how committed the brand is to helping productions get off the ground with minimal fuss.
