St. Louis-based Television Engineering (TEC) has developed a news truck for Univision affiliate KUVN-TV in Dallas.
TEC based its design on a Dodge Sprinter, which was built for nightly newsgathering, editing and to serve as a base for remote newscasts. Five crew members can operate comfortably inside the vehicle, allowing them to edit, create voice-overs and monitor and feed video and audio back to the studios in a spacious, user-friendly workspace.
Initially the truck will transmit using terrestrial microwave, but it can be upgraded with a digital satellite uplink system in the future.
