India created history today when ISRO's Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) successfully entered the orbit of the red planet Mars. The extraordinary milestone made India the first nation to enter Mars orbit in first attempt. While every Indian has a reason to celebrate this momentous occasion, the team at Accord Equips has a double reason to rejoice as its camera team earned the honor of recording the second by second moves of the prestigious Mangalayan launch process.
While the accomplished scientists of ISRO went about with scientific precision all through the launch process, Accord Equips’ camera Canon C300 was unfailingly shooting the well planned on-location activities that unfolded 12 hours before the launch. The fact that this prestigious up to the minute account of Mangalayan’s victorious launch will be preserved for generations to come through the coverage captured by Accord Equips’ flagship camera Canon C300 brings an enormous sense of achievement to the whole team of this end to end digital filming solutions provider.
On this splendid moment Mr. Tejash Shah, Managing Director, Accord Equips says, “It’s been our pleasure and pride to be part of this mission. We heartily congratulate ISRO’s team for the successful launch of Mars Orbit Mission (MOM), also we are thankful to ISRO team for providing us with such a great opportunity.”
