Australia’s TDC launches first multi-purpose OB vehicle

TDC truckTDC – Technical Direction Company has announced the completion of its first full, multi-purpose mobile outside broadcast (OB) vehicle, offering full HD broadcast and production facilities.

“For the past 35 years we have been a pioneer in entertainment technology solutions and we know what works for live audiences, on stage as well as on camera. We have integrated camera systems into projects for many years so it was a natural progression to extend our existing flypack solutions to the new HD01 outside broadcast vehicle,” says Michael Hassett, CEO at TDC.

In collaboration with TDC, the teams from Sony Professional Solutions Asia Pacific, Imagine Communications, Riedel, FUJINON, Miller, and Yamaha have assisted to produce TDC HD01, a fully customised rigid facility that has a focus on functionality and comfort.

A full complement of HD multi-format production equipment includes a 256×256 Platinum router with in-built multiviewers from Imagine Communications. TDC HD01 uses Riedel communications equipment and the truck is wired to support both 8 and the latest 12 channel EVS systems. Utilising the power of Dante audio networking and routing, main mixing is performed by the Yamaha CL5, with the Yamaha QL1 serving as sub-mix and backup.

The Sony 3ME MVS-6530 vision switcher is at the core of the truck, with Sony also providing state of the art OLED monitors throughout. With a full range of FUJINON lenses, and tripod support from Miller, our HDC-1700 cameras and 4K/Super Slomo HDC-4300 cameras are well complimented. TDC HD01 can also incorporate a range of triax, wireless, PTZ, and specialty cameras, providing versatility for essential production demands.

The rigid format will fit into spaces where ‘expando’ vehicles cannot. It is designed to maximise its internal space where operational workspace is key.

“Ensuring TDC is at the forefront of delivering new technologies to the market is a major focus for us and TDC HD01 does just that,” says Michael Hassett.

Our leadership is defined by consistent quality and a passionate team of long-term staff and engineers who have the experience to deliver technically complex events of any size.
