Based on the West Coast, Gearhouse Broadcast’s newest multi-purpose mobile production unit, Iona, has been designed and built to accommodate both at home and full on-site productions. Using our research from the numerous successful remote productions that we’ve run, we have designed, integrated and built the perfect flexible mobile unit for this revolutionary application. Built in a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van with flexibility in mind, users can easily operate a full six-camera live production or connect directly to a venue’s remote production network to connect to a broadcast center.

Iona has a powerful production infrastructure using a ViBox all in one production system from Simplylive.

The ViBox is a unique production tool that boasts a space-saving footprint, 4RU chassis and 27” touchscreen. The unit is equipped with six Hitachi cameras, two robotic cameras and a Telex communications system. When used as part of a remote production infrastructure, the ViBox system can be operated as a recording and streaming device. The video capabilities of Skye are paired with a powerful audio system comprised of a Calrec Brio 36 fader audio board with MADI and Hydra options. The heart of the audio system is the Direct Out Technologies’ M.1K2 MADI router which is connected to the Brio, RTS ADAM-M, Lawo V_Pro 8 and Lance commentary system as well as the tail board for third-party interconnectivity.

The ADAM-M is loaded with four AIO-16’s, one RVON-16 and a MADI-16 PLUS with six TIF-2000 and multiple belt-packs around the edges. Although it has a smaller overall footprint Skye boasts four interior operational positions – audio and vision control, director and engineering. Your crew can work efficiently and comfortably with generous technological consideration and interior attributes.
