Broadcast Solutions Delivers Streamline S12T Truck To Rwanda Broadcasting Agency

Broadcast Solutions GmbH has handed over the first model of a Streamline S12T OB to the Rwanda Broadcasting Agency (RBA).

Broadcast Solutions established the Streamline OB van to turn the complex and lengthy development of an OB van into a vehicle in series production. Underpinning this approach, the company continually keeps chassis and components for the assembly of these OB vans in stock. All pre-planned Streamline models have short delivery times and significant cost advantages, claims the company. The Streamline S12T for RBA was delivered to the customer only three months after order.

The RBA OB truck can work with up to 12 cameras and was delivered with ten cameras from Grass Valley plus two wireless cameras. An essential guideline in the customer's order was the demand to have an OB van that should be as flexible as possible with fast configuration times for different productions.

Arthur Asiimwe, Director General at RBA: "We were looking for an OB truck that is flexible and quick to use and easy to operate. With this Streamline S12T, we have found the perfect production vehicle for our purposes. The fast delivery time and the optimal price-performance ratio of the OB truck were further decisive criteria for contracting Broadcast Solutions with the production and delivery."

Other components include a Grass Valley Kula (3 M/E) video mixer and a Ross Ultrix router (105 x 105) with integrated multiviewer; Lawo mc²56-32 console, Lawo Core router and Riedel Artist 64 intercom system.

Within the S12T, the Rwanda Broadcasting Agency relies on the hi human interface software, developed by Broadcast Solutions, taking care of overall control in the OB truck. With innovative configuration concepts and drag-drop functionalities, hi is the basis to simplify operation and control of all relevant video and audio technology within the OB truck, including router, audio and video mixer, multiviewer, Tally and signal management.
