Alston Elliot Powers OB Trucks With Snell Vega

News Image
Snell has announced that UK sports graphics company Alston Elliot (AE) Graphics has selected its 2RU Vega router to create a workflow environment for sports production in its new OB trucks. AE Graphics partnered with Thameside TV, a supplier of broadcast television post production equipment, to facilitate this implementation.

Vega provides AE Graphics with a small footprint and web-based configuration, enabling AE Graphics staff to re-route the system and allowing for the simultaneous completion of numerous jobs.
In addition, the Vega system allows AE Graphics to plan for future developments in its OB space, including 4K routing and production.
John Scantlebury, Chief Technical Officer at Alston Elliot, said: "Creating a flexible workflow environment is imperative to the implementation of our new OB trucks for sports production. A small footprint, combined with advanced capabilities, make Vega a natural choice, and we look forward to reaping the benefits of a more efficient workflow in the months to come."
AE Graphics had already been using Snell routing equipment in its existing trucks. For the new trucks, the company chose a 96 port 2RU Vega. Any port can be configured as an input or output – making it ideal for limited OB truck space. Any port can also be configured for fibre or coax connectivity, further extending the router’s flexibility.
"Snell is pleased to help Alston Elliot Graphics implement our Vega router into its OB trucks, as well as helping the organization prepare for the next step towards 4K," said Mark Gardner, Snell sales director for Northern Europe and Africa.
"Its flexibility and size provides significant advantages to sports production organisations that demand high efficiency workflows at high speeds without sacrificing quality."
