LSB VSM Becomes Standard In Streamline OB Vans

LSB Broadcast Technologies and Broadcast Solutions GmbH jointly announce an agreement on the exclusive use of VSM in all Streamline OB Vans by default.

LSB Broadcast Technologies is a German-based specialist in Broadcast Control Systems, and its VSM system is set as the default control system in all Streamline OB Vans to be built in the future.

VSM is an IP-based control system that is scalable, hardware independent and – due to server redundancy – 100% failsafe. LSB and its VSM control system is the leading control and monitoring solution in the OB Van market worldwide.

With the Streamline OB Van family, Broadcast Solutions GmbH, one of Europe’s biggest and fastest growing system integrators, offers pre-engineered and nearly “off-the-shelf” OB Vans for every broadcasting environment.

Broadcast Solutions offers Streamline OB Vans in five different versions – from 4, 6, 8, 12 to 16 cameras. All Streamline OB’s come with highly developed and pre-engineered solutions and are delivered turn-key to the customer – fitting in any outdoor broadcasting environment.

Depending on the Streamline version VSM is working in, the VSM system is implemented with a standardized feature set. This, on the one hand, enables the users to benefit from all needed functions of the system and on the other hand offers exactly the functionalities geared to the specific Streamline version and production demands.

Common to every VSM system in all Streamline versions, the control systems has direct access to all relevant hardware within the vehicle: router, multiviewer, audio and vision mixer, intercom and glue equipment. VSM controls the Labels and Tally signals, so there is no need for an additional tally system.

Used in the Streamline versions S12 and S16, VSM is implemented referring to its full feature set. In the smaller Streamline OB Vans (S4, S6 and S8), VSM offers video router control, audio router control, vision mixer control with Tally and Labelling, multiviewer Tally, Labels, GPIO, Tally and several LCD Panels, depending on the Streamline version.

At the IBC Show, Broadcast Solutions showed two different Streamline OB versions at their outdoor stand, Mediatec Streamline S12 and a newly built Streamline S8 with full 4K functionality – both controlled with VSM.
