​Euromedia Outfit 4K Fleet with SAM

SAM’s Kahuna, IQ Modular and Sirius technology has been chosen by Euromedia for its three new hybrid 4K OB vans.

The fleet, comprising one large and two smaller vehicles, was used by Canal+ for a 4K HDR football broadcasting trial between Olympique Lyonnais and PSG in February. The fleet will also be used for European football championships, the Tour de France and other sporting events later this year.

The broadcast services provider has invested in SAM’s Kahuna 9600 production switcher for its multi-format capabilities. Kahuna supports any combination of SD, HD, 1080p (level A & B) and 4K environments.

It also installed SAM’s Sirius 800 routers with advanced hybrid processing (AHP), integrated with VSM controllers. The Sirius 800 delivers operational flexibility, redundancy and provides processing capability on every input and output “generating huge space, cabling, cost and power savings – all critical within an OB environment,” says SAM.

Gaël Tanguy, Technical Director at Euromedia said, “Our aim is to remain the premium technical service provider in the broadcast live events space, whether we’re talking about the summer athletics, a major football tournament or a live music event. We’ve worked closely with SAM to help us reach this goal, and the support that they provide us on a day-to-day basis is critical. SAM offers the best solutions to help us build our operations to cope with whatever our customers require.”
