Procam Television has taken delivery of a new mobile production vehicle.
The truck, which was built by UK systems integration company Broadcast Networks, can accommodate up to 12 cameras and a crew of five.
Procam Television managing director John Brennan said: “We have invested in this new vehicle because we wanted to offer our customers facilities for continuous filming in a range of setting.”
It is equipped with four Cinedeck RX two-channel HD tapeless digital video recorders and a Blackmagic 40 x 40 Videohub video router together with a Blackmagic ATEM 2M/E production switcher.
It also contains seven Sony Trimaster EL monitors.
Externally, the vehicle has a telescopic mast that can be used to mount cameras for overhead shots, plus a roof platform for camera personnel.
Procam Television’s technical director Perry Mitchell added: “Our brief to Broadcast Networks was to provide us with a production vehicle that offered maximum flexibility and could also operate in situations where an external power supply wasn’t available.
“They achieved this by sourcing equipment with 12 volt inputs and by incorporating a 12 volt power system with on-board batteries and an AC inverter.
“This highly sophisticated power system was originally developed for the luxury yacht market, but it works perfectly on board this vehicle as the combination of 12 volt equipment and 12 volt power means that the truck can operate for up to five hours without access to an external generator or mains power.”
