Netherlands-based modular broadcast infrastructure provider AXON Digital Design has been selected by Brazilian system integrator Line Up to provide Synapse modular processing equipment and SynView multiviewers for Line Up’s OB truck.
The purchase marks further collaboration between Line Up and Axon.
The OB truck will make its first public appearance at Broadcast & Cable (stand D7) which will be held in Sao Paulo, August 20-23.
Line Up has installed a number of different 3Gb/s capable broadcast signal processing modules from Axon’s Synapse range. These will fulfill a range of signal processing requirements from analogue video D/A to audio shuffling. Key components in the vehicle’s production workflow are Axon’s SynView multiviewer and SynCross routers, which are part of the Synapse form factor.
This enables the user to mix and match them with the Synapse processing modules in the same housing.
The SynView multiviewer supports resolutions up to 1920x1200 resolution and a Tally and UMD OSD is also included.
This feature set enables a compact monitor solution with the UMD and Tally as part of the set. Time code support is also included. It supports LTC, SNTP, ATC and VITC standards.
SynCross is a Synapse based modular video routing system capable of switching 3Gb/s, HD and SD SDI signals, as well as compressed domain signals such as ASI/DVB and SSI/SMPTE-310. The SynCross routing system is housed in standard Synapse frames occupying a single slot for an 8 input, 8 output system (with the SCG0808) and up to 5 slots for a 40x40 routing solution.
"This truck will be presented at Broadcast & Cable 2013 and is for sale after the show. We have identified that Axon’s technology is the ideal solution for our production needs," says Israel Gomez, Director at ComtelSat Line Up. "Axon’s experience in the OB market is obvious and by selecting its products we have created a 3Gb/s production environment that will meet any customers in SD, HD and beyond for many years to come."
"We are seeing the emergence of advanced 3Gb/s OB vehicles in Latin America and we are pleased to be regarded as a leading technology supplier for these demanding projects," said Harry Kanters, Director of Marketing & Sales at Axon. "Working closely with Line Up, we are developing a highly advanced and compact mobile production facility that is fit for the HD and 3Gb/s era."
