About Our Video Truck

Truck Specifications

Our video production van is a 25-foot Ford V-10 E350 Super Van HD Mobile Production Unit with enough space to comfortably house a 3-person crew. Our van was originally outfitted by Frontline Communications for use as a TV news truck for the purpose of remote HD-video broadcasting.

The mobile production unit features a roof-mount 2nd air conditioning unit (14,000 BTU for the support of 3 people and all operational equipment), interior LED lighting, live internet streaming capability, SD card data-storage, Hard-Drive recording, and support for Solid-State drives.

Other onboard technologies featured in the mobile production unit are interior & exterior 24-channel patch bays, 10 HD-video input ports, 4 auxiliary feeds, a full video wall with four 24-inch monitors, and two 8-inch field-monitors. Chroma-key compositions & PIP functionality is also included.

Power: The vehicle is powered by a standard 220/30amp RV plug (included), but can be powered by a standard household 120-volt outlet so long as the AC isn’t operational.
