The all-IP trucks feature a 100Gbps network core and Lawo’s V__matrix C100 for SDI- and video and audio input/output and processing.
In early April RTBF, Belgium’s public broadcaster for the country’s French-speaking community, took delivery of the first of two full-IP OB trucks. Due to the lockdown, the 12m (40 ft.) long trailer had to be configured remotely using TeamViewer, a few web cameras and microphones for confirmation purposes as well as via VPN in order to be delivered on time. The second identical OB truck will be complete in July.
The twin trucks come equipped with a 100Gbps Arista-powered network core (audio, video and matrix) that revolves around Lawo’s V__matrix C100 platform for SDI- and IP-based video and audio input/output as well as processing.
A Sony XVS-8000 IP vision mixer provides powerful video control for the 16 Sony cameras. The Sony Live System Manager provides the control interface to Lawo's VSM and NMOS-IS04/05 protocols as required. The LSM allowed Sony to remotely access the Switcher network to configure the IP routing and XVS setups from its engineer's home during the unfortunate events of the European lockdowns.
Each truck offers 36 vm_dmv heads delivered by V__matrix C100 blades for multiviewing purposes. Overarching control and orchestration is managed by Lawo’s VSM IP control system.
