#IBCShow 2016: Broadcast Solutions GmbH’s Remarkable Ultra HD-41 Design!


EX212035_L_IBC 2016 logoNEP Switzerland is underway with producing superior 4K resolution of Swiss Football Raiffeisen Super League  seasonal coverage which started July 2016! The Streamline S 12 4K OB Van called Ultra HD-41, is the first 4K OB Van in Switzerland produced by the high end broadcast engineering and integration company, Broadcast Solutions GmbH. The Ultra HD-41 offers an incredible new room production concept which can accommodate up to twenty operators and the system is designed to offer tweleve 4K camera systems. The short delivery time for the creation of Ultra HD-41 was the key part of the deliverable.

“Time was an important factor, since from the assignment to produce the Swiss Football Super League to the first nep-switzerlandproductions we only had less than six month time for developing and testing the OB Van.” stated Trond Hermansen, CTO NEP Switzerland

DSCF7648-BearbeitetBroadcast Solutions GmbH are specialists when it comes to the line of Streamline OB Vans. The pre-engineered OB Vans are available in five different models- which are all available to accommodate 4K technology! The consumer advantage is that Broadcast Solutions GmbH can design, build-out, integrate, and test out all in tight turn around times. The engineering power and efficiency of Broadcast Solutions GmbH, is quite remarkable and highly regarded in the European broadcast industry.

“The Streamline S12 4K is the next logical step for our Streamline OB Van family. We can build and deliver the 4K versions within the same short time frame and with the same cost-advantages. Moreover, using the new room layout there is more space in the Production Area, offering enough space for 20 people in total to work in the OB with ease. The focus on a sophisticated audio section, KVM and control solution makes the OB very flexible in terms of its use. The ingenious audio-video core processing system opens up possibilities to scale for future IP-workflows” remarked Rainer Kampe, CTO at Broadcast Solutions, on the development of the Streamline S12 4K.

DSCF7607I think the Streamline S12 4K is very flexible – in a lot of ways – what I like very much. It is an open solution and we can easily adapt different setups and change positions within the OB. The sophisticated KVM System makes it easy to change the working positions. This all leads to fast setup times, which is an important factor for the company. A further area that pays off to the flexibility of the OB Van is the very powerful audio section, with the big Lawo mainframe and console, which puts us in the position to cover sports and entertainment events with the same high-professional outcome.” said Trond Hermansen, CTO NEP Switzerland.
