openTruck™ delivers a standardized yet customizable way to design a new generation of cost-effective remote production vehicles that deliver the highest quality video and audio content from sports and other live events. By leveraging the powerful, compact, highly interoperable broadcast systems from Ross Video and other leading technology vendors, openTruck™ offers partners a proven blueprint, including open protocols, specifications and schematics, that ensures efficient production workflows, uncompromising video quality, and rapid reconfiguration from event to event.
openTruck™ delivers huge opportunities in the regional sports and live-event market by enabling production companies to build and staff trucks that meet the demanding requirements of today’s sophisticated media delivery networks. At the same time, openTruck™ will offer producers a ready-made fleet of remote production units and trained operators located across North America.
openTruck™ will be complemented by openCrew, an extensive operator training program and database of talented certified freelance operators and partner production companies. openCrew members will gain greater exposure to potential employers, who in turn will benefit from the wide availability and geographic proximity of openTruck™-recommended freelance operators.
A wide variety of components for complete mobile production solutions.
A diverse group of partners provide audio mixing consoles, intercom systems, camera systems, replay systems and other products to offer plenty of choices for mobile production organizations. For openTruck partners, Ross Creative Services can create dynamic graphics packages or convert existing graphics to be used with the XPression motion graphics system.
Delivering high-quality content, enjoying a healthy ROI.
Organizations adopting openTruck benefit from being able to create high-quality content quickly—and produce more of it—as well as deliver an all-round better way to expand coverage and meet consumer demand for the televising of more local events.
