Studio Berlin starts 4K/UHD production with 4K/UHD Streamline OB Van by Broadcast Solutions OB Van will be live at IBC Show, Broadcast Solutions stand, O.E02


Studio Berlin, German based full-service live TV-production provider, adds a new 4K/UHD OB Van to its fleet of mobile production resources. For the new truck, called Ü9, Studio Berlin relies on a Streamline S16 OB Van, which is currently being built by German system integrator Broadcast Solutions GmbH. The trailer is a further example of the company’s own development of the Streamline OB Van family. With more than 40 units built, Streamline OB Vans are the most successful OB Van series in the world and rely on field-proven designs and the latest technology. With the new Ü9 OB Studio Berlin upgrades its production tools thoroughly moving to 4K/UHD to provide state of the art picture quality and production flexibility. The Studio Berlin OB Van will be at display at IBC Show (15 – 19 September) at the Broadcast Solution stand O.E02. The OB’s first production will be the German federal election, taking place September 24th.

Nick Zimmermann, Managing Director at Studio Berlin comments, “For Studio Berlin the Broadcast Solutions’ Streamline approach offers maximum flexibility in connection with technology and production workflows. The combination of cutting-edge system integration and field-proven overall concepts, applied by Broadcast Solutions, all come together in a production tool that perfectly serves our purposes. The Ü9 will be a decisive first step in our 4K/UHD strategy – with more steps to follow.”

With adding Ü9, Studio Berlin’s first 4K/UHD OB Van, the company is enhancing its production resources to meet customer’s demands and to add decisive flexibility to its productions. Inherent to the Streamline OB Vans are field-proven, established room and design concepts combined with the implementation of the latest technology for 4K/UHD, HDR and IP-network workflows. This results in reliable OB Vans, offering high-end technology and sophisticated workflow concepts. This results in improved setup times and working conditions for the company and its team together with maximum production flexibility.

The Ü9 OB Van offers up to 20 workplaces and can work in productions with up to 19 cameras, swapping between HD and UHD productions. Studio Berlin opted for Grass Valley’s LDX 86N cameras, offering native 4K signals together with a Grass Valley Karrera 5 M/E video switcher. For video processing Broadcast Solutions implemented Riedel’s MediorNet solution to be used as a decentralized signal routing and communications backbone, using MetroN Core Routers plus MicroN Standard + Multiviewer systems.
