Broadcast systems integrator Aret has a new demo OB trailer on show, AR-7, which was coach built in-house. AR-7 benefits from everything Aret has learned building more than 400 OBs already in use, said the company, in terms of space, robustness, safety, easy operation, time to operation, heat and acoustic insulation, long life durability, ergonomics, easy maintenance and delivery time.
The 14m long, triple expanding trailer is suitable for very hot countries and designed to be able to cope with major productions, such as premier league football.
Aret has also just completed three DSNG vans, plus a four-to-eight camera van, for a Middle East customer. Based on the Mercedes Sprinter they include a double redundant transmission chain, full production facilities, diesel generator and a special air conditioning system suitable for very hot countries.
It has also recently completed a 12-camera OB Shelter with full production facilities designed for easy marine transportation for an African customer, as well as a Command Vehicle for a south east Asian government that is able to shoot audio and video, link to base via satellite, and has a meeting room and a kitchen.
It is currently completing one of its most powerful 16-camera OB trailers for the Middle East market, including a grip truck with diesel generator and two uplink support vans, and has just signed a contract for OB vans for south east Asia.
It also has two OB trailers ready built, for turnkey projects. One is a double expansion unit, while the other is triple expansion.
