7 Production Deploys TSL Control Solution For New 4K OB Truck

When 7 Production, a premier innovator of market leading 4K and HD production solutions was looking to acquire a complete broadcast control system for its 4K OB truck, TSL Products fit all of its needs.

Requiring a unified solution to control all devices including the vision mixer, routers and multi-viewers, 7 Production selected TSL as its main control and tally management system for the truck, incorporating all signals and signal chains within one system. The company also deploys Virtual Panels, which provide operators with visual, unified control of signal flows and device status within a complete system.

As a leading innovator in broadcast production, 7 Production requires reliable solutions that are flexible and simple to operate during fast-paced, high-pressure live events. TSL Control is built on open APIs and powerful configuration capabilities that allows 7 Production to solve everyday workflow issues and link up multiple systems. Additionally, TSL’s TallyMan system controller includes protocols native to all the major manufacturers, allowing 7 Production to seamlessly connect the system to all other devices for uninterrupted control and monitoring during broadcasts.

“The TSL system is robust and allows for unlimited connections to third-party equipment,” says Tony Jabbour, head of engineering and operations at 7 Production. “Even more, it’s not overly complex compared to other control systems and we have great support from the TSL team. Plus, all of our engineers are familiar with the system as we use it in all of our other OB trucks, making our lives much easier!”

In addition to its ease of use, TSL Control is a cost-effective solution for 7 Production, providing both capital and operational savings. By placing the appropriate amount of control in the hands of its operators, the interfaces that work alongside the TallyMan controller help to minimises human error, improves system reliability, supports system expansion and simplifies system maintenance, all while minimizing both short- and long-term investments for 7 Production.
