The trucks carried lots of Grass Valley HD production equipment, including HD cameras, switchers, servers, routers and modular products.

The company sent its SS-20 and SS-28 mobile production trucks, each equipped with a Grass Valley Kalypso production switcher, Trinix router and multiple WorldCam HD cameras. The telecasts were broadcast in the 720p HD format, using the same Grass Valley multiformat LDK 6000 mk II WorldCam HD cameras as the CBS shoot in 1080i HD.
