The van is heavily used in the field for the VRT news program VRT NWS and to fulfil VRT’s approach to develop new news formats. The ENG is based on a Mercedes V-class and Broadcast Solutions adapted it heavily to meet VRTs wishes in terms of broadcast technology, data transmission, interior design concepts and independent power supply solutions.
The concept of the van is to give the teams in the field as much flexibility as possible to produce on-site or on the road. The room concepts allow for two people to work even when the van is moving. When driving to a location the editors and journalists can prepare the piece they are about to shoot. In the same way they can edit and playout material right away after shooting a feature, before reaching the VRT facilities.
