Gearhouse Shows Ross-Equipped OBLite HD Trailer

Gearhouse highlighted its fully-equipped, live production OBLite HD trailer at IBC2014.

Building on the success of its launch at last year’s show, the affordable and flexible solution has been refined in terms of build and production workflow.

Capable of housing a seven- to eight-person production and operation crew, OBLite features eight Hitachi Z-HD6000 camera channels. The production workflow is designed using Ross Video’s new innovative openTruck blueprint, ensuring increased efficiency, video quality, and the ability to quickly reconfigure the trailer for different events.

Systems used in the truck include; Ross Video’s Carbonite vision mixer, NK Series routing system and glue have been implemented from its openGear platform, as well as the powerful and compact LAWO V_pro8 1U video processor.

Structural updates to OBLite include a new, lighter chassis, built-in retractable door steps, a load-bearing roof with operator safety harness and anti-slip surface, waterproof mouse holes for cable runs, stabilisation jacks and flush door locking mechanisms.

All external units have been encased and the truck relies on a new internal cooling system. OBLite now includes a new LED lighting array as well as ECE 104 compliant reflective tape and ‘On Air’ lights. Changes to the interior lay-out also allow for two 6-channel HD EVS XT server positions.
