For nearly 25 years, FreeLens has been supporting television networks worldwide in their outdoor productions, covering large-scale national and international events, news coverage, and the creation of reports and documentaries. We are specialists in Live broadcasting and Storytelling.
Depending on your needs, FreeLens can set up up to 14 cameras, which we can complement with our special equipment such as cranes, steadicams, wireless cameras, and tracking systems, etc. Our services also include video, audio, and lighting installations, as well as satellite and IP transmission.
Our expertise is recognized by the four largest global audiovisual agencies. EBU (European Broadcasting Union), AFP (Agence France Presse), Associated Press, and ENEX (European News Exchange) have validated our production protocols and entrust us with new productions every day. Our ENG package includes providing a complete filming team (cameraman, sound engineer, camera kit, sound kit, and lighting kit). Our Satellite News Gathering (SNG) vehicles transmit live HD feeds in real-time from wherever the news is happening.
Having covered major conflicts and global events for over 20 years, FreeLens fully understands the needs of broadcasters. Built on meticulously organized communication, the success of our projects, especially those carried out in sensitive environments, is the cornerstone of a recognized and carefully orchestrated mechanism by our peers.
Our unique references speak for themselves, including press conferences with the Luxembourg Prime Minister and Government, presidential and legislative elections in France, elections in Germany, visits by the Pope to Africa, funerals of Jacques Chirac, Johnny Hallyday, Nelson Mandela, Simone Veil at the Pantheon, the war in Mali, the war in Iraq, the Paris attacks, Hurricane IRMA, the earthquake in Haiti, the Ebola crisis in Guinea, Vladimir Putin's state visit, the centenary of the Battle of Verdun, the centenary of World War I, the anniversary of the Normandy landings, the Russo-Ukrainian conflict, and more.
For capturing, we offer a customized setup and can complement it with our special equipment. We also organize outdoor TV studios for "post-match analysis." Regardless of the location of the sports event, FreeLens broadcasts your HD footage live to television networks worldwide, thanks in part to our Satellite News Gathering (SNG) vehicles.

For twenty years, we've been narrating the world through the stories of men and women whose faces are reflected in our lenses. We create reports and documentaries for the world's largest international television networks. From conception to post-production, we have complete control over the production process. We have the skills, personnel, and equipment to produce high-quality short or feature-length documentaries. We collaborate with independent authors and journalists to tackle subjects that can touch or engage the audience.
We are part of several international production company networks with whom we work closely. We adhere to international production standards defined by the European Broadcasting Union. Our local contacts and the high standards of our network ensure a consistent result, even if a destination is not accessible for our own teams.
