Hibino Corporation’s Visual Division supplies a wide range of high-end rental equipment including audio and P.A. systems, LED screens, projectors and media servers to a variety of markets, most notably live concerts and corporate events of which car shows form an important part. High quality, stability and service are key to Hibino’s success in these fields.
Hibino operates on a global level and often work closely with rental suppliers in Europe and the United States, using remote teams to supply like for like equipment for touring bands. In 2009, XL Video strongly recommended disguise to Hibino, causing the team to look at photos of the Marco Borsato White Light tour which was running on disguise. Impressed with what they saw, Hibino then decided to buy disguise equipment and became one of the early adopters worldwide. Being able to show a real-time 3D simulation to production managers or stage designers is still an indispensable feature for Hibino.
“It’s an honour to be part of the disguise family. I’m very eager to see disguise rolled out in Japan. I have no doubt it will take off and become the industry standard here.”
Junichi “Imo-san” Imokawa, Managing Director of Hibino
With the 2020 Olympic Summer Games being held in Tokyo, Hibino Visual expect demand for disguise products will increase more and more, stressing the value of a continued strong relationship with disguise.
Chris Bird, who visited the Hibino office in Tokyo, says: “As a long time disguise owner, we are very proud for Hibino to become the first owner of the pro range technology in Japan. We are committed to supporting them in their use and continuing to develop our strong relationship together”.
