Broadcast Solutions Brings Two New 4K OB Vans To IBC

At this year’s IBC Show (stand Outdoor O.D02), German System Integrator and OB Van specialist Broadcast Solutions GmbH will showcase two 4K OB Vans. Two examples of the Streamline OB Van product family will be on display: a Streamline S8 4K OB van, built for NEP Germany and an Alphaline 12 4K OB van, built for South Korean Broadcaster SBS.

The two Broadcast Solutions GmbH-built OB Vans exemplify the refinement of the Streamline OB Family concept. They are conceived with pre-configuration to ensure the fastest delivery, but are flexible enough to adapt to the customer’s needs.

The Streamline S8 4K is a compact and self-driving OB Van that excels in 4K with up to 8 UHD cameras. The Streamline S8 4K is the next level of the Streamline OB Vans – pre-configured and available as 4K versions. The OB Van uses the 2 Sample Interleave UHD standard and offers workplaces for up to 9 people. Although only 7.9 meters long the OB Van offers additional space in the rear for storage and works as an independent OB Van not requiring a support vehicle.

With the Alphaline OB vans, the company introduces a new member to the Streamline Family. The Alphaline OB to be shown at IBC comes with a new coach building design: it’s shorter in length and makes efficient use of the available workspace. The OB van offers full and dedicated sections to work on productions with up to 12 cameras in 4K/UHD. The cameras work on the basis of 12G-SDI UHD Single Link in combination with Quad Link 3G-SDI.

Furthermore the production vehicle makes use of hybrid IP-systems and connectivity. Although a more specialized and individualized OB Van, the Alphaline, like the other Streamline OBs, can be delivered in a very short time but without any compromises on technology or durability.

South Korean broadcaster SBS is a long-time customer of Broadcast Solutions and the OB Van shown at IBC is the second unit built for the South Korean broadcaster.
