Spiritland One at IBC 2019

Spiritland Productions’ one-of-a-kind, large format, versatile sound and video outside broadcast (OB) truck was at IBC between 13-17 September, 2019 at the RAI Amsterdam.

Our bespoke truck contains an end-to-end IP infrastructure with audio that runs entirely on a Dante Network. The truck is Dolby Atmos capable and was designed to provide the best possible monitoring and mix environment for live music.
The luxury mobile production vehicle, named ‘Spiritland One’, was delivered in early June, and went on the road following just one week of successful testing, covering a week of live television and radio broadcasts on BBC4, BBC Radio3 and BBC Radio Wales for the Cardiff Singer of the World Competition. From there it was put to use as a post production mix facility for a large-scale BBC Radio 2 concert, and more recently to record and live mix a Burt Bacharach special concert at the Hammersmith Apollo.

Spiritland One includes an SSL System T broadcast audio production desk and console, Barefoot speakers and the KH range of Neumann monitors. The vehicle carries 128 SSL mic amps as standard, an Optocore stage system that runs both Dante and Riedel Bolero communications network, as well as eight stage MADIs that can be plugged straight into devices for greater streamlining.

We worked with Megahertz and coachbuilder Spectra Specialist Engineering to carefully spec and install high-quality furnishings and luxury materials into the truck, ensuring the output met the expectation and range of the high calibre of guests using the facility both now and in the future.
