It has been used for:

  • Multi-camera shoots at Glastonbury and Glade music festivals

The van is a mixed-use vehicle with digital vision facilities centred around a Sony Anycast mixer, surround audio facilities based on the Soundcraft Vi6 digital mixer and Pyramix Digital Audio Workstation. It is capable of recording up to 64 simultaneous tracks of audio and six cameras.
