Broadcast Solutions To Bring OB Trucks To IBC 2023

News Image
Broadcast Solutions will bring two of its recently completed outside broadcast trucks to IBC2023 (15 – 18 September, RAI Amsterdam, outside exhibit area 0.A01).

They are a large articulated truck custom built for SuperSport, and a recent fixed-chassis 12 camera unit based on the Broadcast Solutions Streamline family to be delivered to Remotion. The site will also see demonstrations of the innovative meshLINK wireless transmission system.

SuperSport IP2 is the second unit supplied to the South African broadcaster, following IP1 in June of this year. Intelligent design packs as many as 19 workplaces into the single-expanding trailer.

It is fitted out with Sony cameras and production switcher, Calrec audio, Vizrt graphics and EVS replays. Internally, IP2 is all IP, with SNP processors from Imagine Communications for SDI/IP conversion.

Like the SuperSport vehicle, the Remotion S8L on display is fully Ultra HD capable. The unit is built on an 18 tonne MAN chassis, with bespoke coachbuilding and internal layout to support 10 to 12 workplaces, including cameras by Grass Valley, a Sony production switcher, Lawo audio console and Riedel intercom. Despite extended delivery times for the basic vehicle, thanks to the flexible standard format, Broadcast Solutions was able to complete the project in less than 11 months.

Both vehicles use the hi human interface management layer from Broadcast Solutions. This radical new approach to system control, which emphasises simple and intuitive operation as well as comprehensive automation, will be demonstrated on the Broadcast Solutions dedicated hi human interface stand inside IBC2023, 10.D41.

The company will also be demonstrating the meshLINK high quality wireless video transmission platform in the outside exhibits area. Developed by Broadcast Solutions, this transforms wireless camera planning and execution through the use of an IP mesh network. Each unit acts as a transmitter, receiver and repeater at the same time, and multiple cameras operate on the same frequency. It provides excellent image quality through the use of H.265 encoding, at up to 4k Ultra HD, with connectivity either over 12G SDI or 2SI.

The outside exhibition location will also include partner companies Thum + Mahr, Birds Camera Solutions and TVC.

"We are showing two outside broadcast trucks at IBC this year, because we continue to see strong business in sport and entertainment," said Stefan Breder, CEO of Broadcast Solutions. "Through our Streamline products and our bespoke designs we meet any requirement, from a simple SNG van to the biggest truck in the world.

"Those same system integration and construction skills are also used in the many fixed facilities we build for our clients," Breder added. "We draw on our long and successful experience to understand our clients’ real requirements and develop technology-agnostic solutions that best meet their commercial, creative and engineering needs. IBC is a great opportunity to showcase our skills and discuss future projects."
