New tpc HDTV OB truck takes to the road with Zandar

Zandar Technologies, a leading innovator in MultiViewer technology, has successfully completed a project for Sony Professional Services which sees seventeen HD MultiViewers integrated into an advanced HDTV capable OB truck for Switzerland’s largest TV production company, tpc.
Designed and built by Sony Professional Services, this new vehicle uses the very latest in digital technology to set new standards in OB vehicle design.
Fully HDTV and SDI capable, this new tpc vehicle is one of Europe’s largest and most advanced OB trucks and hits the road this winter with Zandar Predator HD MultiViewers at its very heart to drive an impressive and innovative large production monitor wall of high quality images. In the critical production area of the vehicle is an exceptionally compact, state-of-the-art monitoring stack where production crews can view up to 66 sources in either SDI or HDTV formats according to production requirements. In total there are 17 Predator HD4 MultiViewers feeding a bank of Sony LCD displays. The combination of multi format LCD panels and auto-sensing SDI & HDTV MultiViewer technology not only reduces weight and equipment size to less than half of a traditional CRT monitoring wall equivalent but also provides much greater flexibility as the truck can be reconfigured at the touch of a button to meet different production requirements at each event.
Taking advantage of the latest technologies Sony Professional Services sought to deliver an exceptionally flexible OB Truck and in doing so required state of the art equipment that could meet the challenges of the project.
