Oxygen DCT's Penta Series LCDs Cover Lions Tour

Dimension TV Facilities, South Africa's largest independent OB operator, has equipped its latest HD vehicle with Oxygen DCT's Penta series of LCD monitors.
This new HD truck was built in record time to cover the Lions Rugby Tour matches in South Africa for Sky TV.
The truck travelled extensively across the country, providing television facilities for every game with feeds from each venue beamed live to a massive worldwide global TV audience.
With such a prestigious event, Dimension could take no chances and chose the Penta series for the main production gallery, slo-mo and engineering areas because they needed absolutely accurate picture monitoring. OB 7 offers the highest quality picture monitoring and is the first OB on the African continent to be equipped with ITU REC-709 standard picture monitors, providing the highest picture quality on the continent.
Hennie Reynders, Managing Director of Dimension TV Facilities, commented: "It is important for us to adopt the highest international standards, particularly with more and more world events taking place in South Africa and we are able to demonstrate to clients that we can operate at a level, equal to the best in Europe and the rest of the world.
Picture monitoring is a vital part of any OB, especially as its part of the creative production process and clients can come here in the knowledge that they are viewing truly accurate monitors whatever the HD format or standard. Equipped with Oxygen DCT's Penta series 20" and 24" monitors, OB 7 has the best production gallery in Africa and we are delighted with the service and support we have received from Oxygen DCT in order to meet our tight deadlines."
Steve Hathaway, Director of Oxygen DCT, added: "The Penta series are widely acknowledged as the highest quality LCD picture monitors and the only monitors to guarantee ITU REC709 colurimetry. Dimension TV Facilities adopted the Penta series upon our recommendation and in the knowledge that these monitors are widely used by Europe's leading OB companies. We to very pleased with the trust and faith that Dimension TV Facilities have shown in us to supply the most advanced OB in Africa!
