American President Barack Obama’s trip to Israel later this week will be broadcast worldwide in high definition. Mizmor Productions, a local production company, won a tender from the Prime Minister’s office to follow President Obama throughout his trip and cameramen from the firm will accompany him to his speeches, photo ops and visits to Israeli sites such as the Shrine of the Book at the Israel Museum, Theodore Herzl’s grave and Yad Vashem.

The footage shot by the company’s cameramen will entered into the press pool and distributed free of charge via satellite to news outlets around the world. The footage will also be webcast live over the internet.

Footage of the visit will be shot by crews manning twenty vans carrying forty high-definition cameras, which will begin recording from the moment that Air Force One touches down on the tarmac at Ben Gurion International Airport on Wednesday.

“All footage of President Obama's visit will be broadcasted live,” Mizmor Productions announced in a release.
