Compare Trucks

Gemini 1 and 2 are two large double expanding scanners that work together to offer a complete programme making experience where previously 3 trucks would have been needed. Two large production and sound areas accommodating up to 30 people in Gemini 1, the production and presentation truck and 30 people seated in Gemini 2 the VTR/Edit truck. The Geminis offer a rare combination of the very latest 3Gbs, 3D ready technology, in over 1400 square feet of floor space and are connected using only 10 Stratos Multicore fibres for full talkback and router integration and control.
