18-CAMERA DOUBLE EXPANDER HD OB TRUCK WITH TENDER VEHICLE
Built to be able to negotiate the confines of narrow London streets, this 18-camera HD OB truck combines a small footprint with the technical capabilities of a much larger vehicle.
Its two expanding pods provide a spacious production area packed with highly specced HD equipment. Ideal for live events and sports productions, the truck has covered countless film premieres in London’s West End, as well as regular coverage of under-23 matches for the in-house channel of a Premier League football club.
18-camera HD OB truck with spacious, flexible production area
The OB truck’s sizeable production area can accommodate four operators in the main gallery and a further four in an EVS/secondary production area directly behind. The vision mixer is a 3-ME Sony MVS-7000X. The gallery wall consists of 10 Sony LMD-2341W 23″ HD monitors and two Sony PVM-2541A 25″HD production monitors, as well as four Osee 9″ split-screen monitors. Genelec audio monitoring is provided throughout this area.
The EVS positions include automatically retractable monitor stacks incorporating eight Ikegami ULE-217 21.5″ HD monitors.
Flexible engineering department
Engineering is accessed through a sliding glass door leading from the production room, or can also be reached directly from an external door to the rear of the truck. Accessible racking allows the OB truck to be rigged on a job-by-job basis if required, giving great flexibility to service a wide range of productions.
This area features four Sony PVM-A170 17″ HD monitors as well as Osee and Blackmagic monitors. Two Evertz 5600MSC signal pulse generators with SD and HD-SDI test generator, network time protocol and GPS options are included, as is an Evertz 5600ACO master changeover system.
Miranda routing and control
The HD OB truck operates on a Miranda NVision NV8280 288×576 audio/video router, controlled by a Miranda NV920 control system with full redundant control. A TSL Tallyman system controller and ESP-R1+ relay expansion unit are included, as well seven populated Miranda Densité 3 frames, a Tektronix WFM-7200 with audio, composite and measurement option and four DTL distribution amplifiers.
Calrec Omega audio mixer with 7.1 surround sound
The audio gallery is housed in a dedicated suite accessed from the truck’s exterior gangway. This features an impressively specced Calrec Omega digital audio console with 48 dual-later faders and Surround Spill, Bluefin high-density signal processing, 160 channel processing paths (64 mono and 48 stereo), 4×4 64-channel Madi, 32×32 AES and 64 mic line and 64 analogue outputs. The mixer’s MADI enables expansion for larger productions.
The audio suite boasts 7.1 surround sound audio monitoring, powered by Genelec speakers, with Bel and CTP audio monitors included in the audio rack. A Telex RTS Adam intercom system is included, while HD video monitoring is via two Sony PVM-A170s.
Auxiliary edit suite and storage in tender vehicle
The accompanying tender vehicle includes sizeable storage for cables and flight cases. It houses an auxiliary edit/graphics suite with floor-to-ceiling rack and work stations for two operators. No equipment is included in this tender vehicle.
The 18-camera HD OB truck itself has locker storage underneath, while the vehicle’s body is specifically built for thermal and acoustic protection.
In superb condition throughout and with an expansive array of high-quality equipment included, this 18-camera HD OB truck and tender is the perfect solution for medium to large live events and sports productions.
