Rec4Box Develops 37’ 5th-Wheel Production Trailer
Announces 4th Generation Trailer for U.S. Market at CCW 2015 – New York
Montreal-based Rec4Box OB Factory has developed a new production trailer for the U.S. market. The 37’ trailer series named “Galleon,” will sport a Grass Valley Karrera Studio Production System and features an expanded workspace to comfortably handle a minimum of 12 staff members. Optimized to handle 12-camera/CCU productions (plus auxiliary cameras like GoPro), the ultra-light 15,000 lb. trailer can be pulled by a heavy-duty pick-up truck.
“We worked closely with our U.S. clients to develop this new trailer configuration,” says Rec4Box CTO, Jonathan Fortin. “The basic template was already there. It was a matter of accommodating the larger event profile and providing additional workspace for graphics, stats and replay staff, typically found in larger sporting events.”
Rob Poretti, VP Sales & Marketing, Rec4Box OB Factory adds: “The ergonomic design and technical equipment structure of our trailers is extremely efficient. Galleon provides the equivalent operational workspace of a 50-foot, non-expando trailer. And if you need more space, you can link multiple trailers together.”
Rec4Box has developed a new trailer linking technology in conjunction with Riedel MediorNet called oB-LINK. This allows all trailer signals to be linked via a single cable system, creating a much larger “virtual production space.” oB-LINK also can be used to connect the new 37’ trailer with the smaller 26’ trailer also manufactured by Rec4Box.
The new Galleon trailer features increased storage space in the 5th-wheel nose, as well as more rack space for CCU’s, playback servers, and an expanded router to handle the additional signals for routing. Equipment and trailer configuration are completely customizable.
