Seoul Broadcasting System Unveils 12G-SDI 4K (UHD) OB Van with Studer Audio

Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS), a national South Korean television and radio network has added a new 4K OB Van to its broadcasting capabilities that features a single-link, all-12Gbps infrastructure. It also includes the latest audio production technology from HARMAN’s Studer division.

This is the first 12-G SDI UHD Single link production vehicle to enter the South Korean market and was built by leading German system integrator, Broadcast Solutions, in cooperation with Dong Yang Digital, Harman Professional Solutions’ South Korean reseller.

Following a successful first test at the ISU World Cup Short Track Speed Skating Competition at Gangneung, South Korea earlier this year, and in preparation for the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games (to be shot in 4K UHD) SBS’ new OB van is using an audio mixer and audio matrix with Studer’s Vista X and Infinity Core 400. This helps the crew deliver high-quality sound in the audio room. 

The Studer Vista X console uses four independent processors to achieve high levels of redundancy in the control surface.

The Vista X together with the Infinity Core offer unprecedented advantages when it comes to live mixing and big productions,” said Junho Yoon, Team Manager, Facility Operation and Management, Seoul Broadcasting System. “For instance the Vista X uses four independent processors to achieve high levels of redundancy in the control surface while CPU-based DSP makes it viable to provide two completely independent DSP cores running in parallel.”

The Studer Vista X console includes a VistaMix feature that ensures intelligibility and a clear, consistent sound in live, unscripted, multi-microphone events. VistaMix mirrors the capabilities of a highly skilled operator, and does so at lightning speed. It increases gain for talking mics and reduces gain for others, all while keeping the total gain at a constant level.

“This is a prestigious project for HARMAN Professional Solutions and our partner Dong Yang Digital,” said Ramesh Jayaraman, Vice President and General Manager for HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. He added that there are several hundred Vista consoles in daily use within the Korean broadcasting industry.
