Wuxi TV Outfits OB with SAM

Chinese broadcaster Wuxi TV has purchased the Kahuna 4800, KudosPro and IQ Modular from SAM for its new HD OB van. The deal included purchase of the KudosPro image processing platform.

Zhenzhao Liu, Director of Sales of the Shanghai Branch at Century Sage Scientific System said, “We recommended Kahuna 4800, KudosPro and IQ Modular to Wuxi TV. Wuxi TV had purchased Kahuna previously and were impressed with its power and functionality. Since we were already familiar with it and knew it was reliable, it was the most logical choice for their new HD OB van.”

Stephen Wong, SVP Sales, Asia Pacific, at SAM explained that the Kahuna 4800 is a compact, powerful production switcher that offers 2 to 4 M/Es and a robust feature set including 2.5 DVE and up to 24 key layers on a fully populated system. SAM’s FormatFusion technology means it can handle simultaneous multi-format productions in SD, HD, 1080p, 4K, and IP. With KudosPro, Wuxi TV gets cost-effective single, dual and quad channel integrated audio and video processing as well as format and framerate conversion all in a 1RU box. The OB van is also equipped with SAM’s IQ Modular infrastructure.
