ND SatCom Installs SAM64 In SSR/SRG OB Truck Upgrades

4HM has announced it is providing its unique SAM64 SDI to MADI and AES audio interfaces for use in five satellite news gathering trucks owned by the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation (SRG SSR) based in Bern. The five trucks are being upgraded by German satellite broadcast and communications specialist ND SatCom based in Immenstaad.
“The first of the five trucks has already been upgraded and all are to receive a SAM64 as part of a major refit to their capabilities. The SAM64 was chosen because is provides a cost and space efficient solution to de-embedding up to 4 SDI streams simultaneously”, says Johannes Schlieszus, Engineer Broadcast at ND SatCom. “Each unit also comes as standard with an in built redundant power supply providing the resilience essential for outside broadcast use.”
The SAM64 can extract 16 audio channels from each of the unit’s four SDI inputs to provide a total of 64 audio channels in both MADI and AES3 formats. All SDI inputs independently auto-sense between 3G, HD and SD standards and are provided with loop-through connectivity for downstream equipment.
When completed, the refitted trucks will provide the backbone of the Swiss broadcaster’s national news gathering fleet. SRG is the Swiss public broadcaster and is the largest electronic media organisation in the country it broadcasts in all four main languages used in Switzerland.
