Take a Quick, Awesome Video Tour of a $25 Million Broadcast Truck

Many Many Screens to blow your mind in this mobile broadcast truck

You think you’re a real tech aficionado? You have two—maybe even three!—screens hooked up to your laptop at work. Well that is almost quite literally nothing compared to what you can expect to find in a TV broadcast truck, and the sheer number of screens will make you eyes shrivel into their sockets.

The video was posted to Reddit by the filmer, teamkrazy, who expanded on the tour a little in the comments:

Most of the truck is all IT controlled via various bits of software but you need a deep level understanding of how video and audio signals work in order to get the job. We are a facilities provider. We win contracts to provide facilities to networks for sports (or shows like The Voice etc) we provide all the crew and the network turns up with ‘production’ crew and on air talent. We do the show. Pack it all up and move on to the next job.

Of course a truck like this is only part of the mammoth amount of gear and effort that goes into the production of live sports. And you thought playing them was the hard part’
