__SPACER__ What we cant glean from this site is if this control room is actually inside the enormous truck that provides the following:<p /><p />"This completely new production vehicle, the first native 720p & 1080i format truck in the world, was introduced to the broadcasting community to rave reviews. The unit is capable of providing 32 cameras, 30 VTR’s or channels of digital disk recording, has an audio control room capable of handling over 594 separate sources and boasts one of the largest production and routing switcher systems on the road anywhere in the world. All of this was accomplished in a single, 53-foot trailer that sets up quickly and easily with three engineers. In the short time that HD4 has been available, it has already provided services for The NBA Playoffs on ESPN, The NBA Finals on ABC, and along with the B unit and Location Solutions mobile edit facility, currently provides the production equipment for Monday Night Football."

Because of local opposition, spent nuclear fuel from places like this is in far less secure places.
