Welcome to Chicago Broadcast Systems, we are brokers of new and used equipment used in film and video production.

Chicago Broadcast Systems is a traditional video equipment brokerage found throughout the film and TV industries. And that means much of the equipment that we sell is sourced from owner operators who have submitted listings of the equipment that they would  like to sell.

New and b-stock equipment many times comes directly from the manufacturer, or distributors in the manufacturers supply chains. Which means, if there is a warranty that the manufacturer is offering on a piece of equipment, that warrant will also be passed along with any equipment that we sell from the manufacturer ***unless otherwise stated. And that also applies to b-stock and demonstrator models from the manufacturers.

We offer a free equipment listing service, so please feel free to send us your list, and we will list your equipment on our site. Chicago Broadcast Systems reserves the right to refuse any listing that we deem inappropriate or not sellable.

We, also offer appraisal services for insurance purposes in case of loss or if you just want to know what the current market value of your equipment is, we can give you a ballpark evaluation.

Also, we can provide you with leasing options to make acquisition of new and used equipment easier and more cost-effective. Leases are based upon the credit worthiness of the borrower and is not the sole decision of Chicago Broadcast Systems, nor any of its affiliates.

Lastly, Chicago Broadcast Systems is a fiduciary, meaning it is our obligation to care for the financial interests of the individuals and firms that we are doing business with, so you should know that we go to great lengths to insure the that equipment we sell is of the highest quality. And that the buyer and the seller receive fair value for their equipment, and the seller is compensated for the equipment they offer for sale.

And if you are searching for a difficult to find item or just researching prices, contact us because we’re a great place to start!
