16-Camera Double-Expander HD OB Vehicle /Video Europe


The OB truck boasts a flexible open-plan layout, offering optimal functionality for small and large production teams alike. Easy access to the racks allows the truck to be rigged per job. The vehicle is designed to be able to operate with only one side expanded if space is restricted.

Video Europe commissioned C2S to supply, design, coach-build and integrate this 16-camera HD project. Cutting-edge technology was employed to deliver a truly versatile, modern OB, offering top-class facilities for scalable events coverage. The project also included a support vehicle with on-board edit suite.
