A bit of history

About us

We’re Ovide, a camera rental company founded in 1994 in Barcelona, Spain.

Our story with Ovide Smart systems began after years of looking for the perfect video assist equipment.

We couldn’t find the enduring and standardised solution we were looking for and, as a result, we decided to develop our own system for us to rent.

Our clients were so happy with our custom video assist system they begun to ask to buy it, so we thought: why not?

We evolved from a rental company to a specialised video assist manufacturer.

Nowadays we have designed, developed and manufactured several video assist systems with a great acceptance in the industry.

Our systems are used in more than 50 countries and we work with dealers all over the world.

We are proud to say that our Ovide Smart systems have been used in hundreds of world-renowned productions.

We work closely with QTAKE to evolve together and offer our clients better systems every day.

Ovide Smart systems run QTAKE, the most standardised video assist software in the film industry.

We have designed and built our own electronics to meet QTAKE’s high standards. Our products aim to be uncomplicated all-in-one systems.

We have the background expertise of a rental company and the everyday knowledge of the film industry. That’s why our systems are rock solid, easy to use and designed with many useful details.
