Calrec Satisfy The Audio Demands Of SuperSport’s New 4K/UHD IP-native OB Truck

Working with systems integrator Broadcast Solutions, SuperSport, leading South African broadcaster and content supplier, has chosen Calrec to fulfil the audio demands of its new 4K/UHD IP-native OB truck, IP1.

The truck, fully ST 2110 and NMOS compliant, houses a 64-fader Artemis, two AoIP ImPulse routing and processing cores and a 30-fader AoIP Type R.

IP1 was built with the purpose of revolutionizing live sports broadcasting by using the latest IP technologies from leading suppliers. SuperSport is using the truck for international and local sporting events across South Africa, originating in 4K. Fully ST 2110-compliant, the truck took 18 months to design and build, working with SI Broadcast Solutions. Each ImPulse core – primary and redundant - has two router cards with the Type R being used for submixing and redundancy. Monitoring is via Dolby Atmos 5.1.4 and all sources are via stageboxes or ST 2110 direct. The truck is also equipped with a Dante network commentary and audio monitoring devices.

With approximately 750 live productions each year, SuperSport is no longer confined to 1080p.
