Pro-Bel defined as the way ahead for brand new SBP HD truck

Pro-Bel, the premier manufacturer and supplier of routing switchers, signal processing, master control, automation and workflow technologies, has announced that market leading Italy-based OB services provider SBP has purchased and installed Pro-Bel routing and control technology in its brand new HD truck.
The deal was secured and has been overseen by Pro-Bel’s long-term Italian partner, Video Progetti.
SBP, which has offices in Rome, Milan and Turin and is the largest OB services supplier in Italy, works for broadcasters across Europe securing high level sports coverage across the continent.
The new truck – which is now going through final testing – is a fleet-leading 24-camera HD vehicle. This is the first of its kind in Italy and represents a major commitment to the European sports coverage market. SBP has more than 15 vehicles already operational. The project has been led by SBP’s highly regarded Technical Director Sergio Nuvoloni. He has over 20 years’ experience in the industry and has been instrumental in constructing SBP’s current fleet.
Built by Smiths Coachbuilders in the UK, with wiring work carried out by Sony, Pro-Bel technology is key to the vehicle’s success.
At its heart sit two of the company’s routers – a Sirius 256 x 256 HD and Freeway 128 x 128 AES – operating under Pro-Bel’s highly regarded and globally popular Aurora control system.
Carlo Struzzi, Sales Director with Video Progetti, explained: “The Aurora control system was central to SBP specifying Pro-Bel technology as it provides the power and flexibility that they need. The true multi-format nature of the Sirius technology was also important, as well as its modularity.” (CD)
