Sirius is a newly custom-built outside broadcast vehicle which supports 18 cameras, with up to three vision operators, two Replay operators, and an OB supervisor position. It can accommodate 14 staff in high-tech, climate-controlled comfort.
This truck has been designed specifically for the French and European broadcast market, giving customers further benefits from Gravity’s experience in providing the technical equipment, facilities, and services to capture the world’s most watched content.
