WTS Equips OB Trucks With Snell Routing, Infrastructure And Control

News Image
WTS has almost completed two new HD OB trucks for SuperSport Africa, together with two support vehicles.

The OB trucks are equipped with Snell Sirius 830 multi-format routers, IQ Modular infrastructure and Snell control. One OB truck and support vehicle will be based in Nigeria (OB2), the second in Zambia (OB6). The vehicles are the sixth and seventh HD OB trucks built by WTS for SuperSport, all of which have incorporated Snell routing, infrastructure and control.

The OB vehicles are built on 40ft rigid Mercedes chassis to cope with the rough terrain they will experience on location, with double expanding sides, and each boasting 14+4 cameras. "As with the previous HD OB trucks WTS supplied to SuperSport, we have made ease of control the core attribute of these two new vehicles," said Ben Murphy, WTS Sales Director. "This is a touchscreen-based system control and monitoring solution built on Snell control and customized by WTS. It allows the engineers to use a variety of devices - laptops, iPads and iPhones - to rapidly alter the setup of a truck, giving the production team the perfect environment for a wide range of programme output.

"The terrain in certain areas of Africa can be very challenging, so robustness is also a key consideration, and our experience over the last five OB projects demonstrates that Snell systems deliver on this front too," Murphy concluded.
