Cost-Effective Productions


Cost-effective productions no matter where the road takes you

There is a limited amount of large national and international live events needing live video production coverage. However, there is increased demand to produce more types of different regional and local events. Fortunately with technological advances in vehicles and products, the economics of producing these smaller events is more attractive than ever. Ross has made a deliberate choice to focus on enabling lower cost mobile production in a number of diverse ways.

First is the openTruck™ initiative from Ross Video. openTruck provides a standardized yet customizable blueprint for a new generation of cost-effective mobile production vehicles. The openTruck initiative involves partnerships with equipment manufacturers, system integrators, truck builders, mobile producers, and freelance operators.

Companies that become openTruck™ partners are able to take advantage of openTruck’s proven blueprint, which includes open protocols, specifications and schematics. This blueprint enables full-featured productions with network-quality output, and ensures consistent performance and results—every time, all the time.
