See As Mercedes-Benz Van Is Turned Into A TV Studio

We all know the old saying “Necessity is the mother of invention” and this is a rear case of creativity. This is a 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van that has now become a studio for news broadcasting. The man behind this is Lech Marcinczak who is a reporter and camera operator for Poland’s TVN24 news network.

Lech is first and foremost an inventor with a particular passion for live video streaming. His job was affected due to the COVID-19 pandemic. His station requested that he find—or invent—a way for TVN24 to isolate and interview guests in a professional-looking on-screen setting outside of the station’s main studio.

While Marcinczak initially built a small stationery studio for this purpose, he soon realized a mobile studio would allow TVN24 to reach guests wary of wandering too far from their residence. In short order, Marcinczak converted the station’s 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter cargo van into a fully functioning television studio.





The van,(powered by a diesel engine) once-empty cargo bay now includes a dedicated green screen, an array of LED lights. All necessary camera equipment, and a laptop for producing and keying in proper backdrops behind any on-air guest. After all, half the appeal of TVN24’s mobile studio is that nothing appears out of the ordinary to the station’s viewers. From first impressions, no one will know that the news was filmed from a van

It took Lech a total of 6 hours to convert the van to a mobile television studio and it cost him $100 (About  40,000). That figure is just for the setup of the van as the other equipment are already available with the studio. The studio conversion is a success as the TV station requests he turns 2 more vans to a mobile studio.
