Timeline Television to Showcase 4K-HDR IP OB Truck on SAM’s IBC 2017 Booth

Snell Advanced Media (SAM) has announced that Timeline Television’s newest OB truck – the first uncompressed IP 4K HDR truck in Europe – will be featured on its stand at IBC 2017. The truck, UHD2, seamlessly handles fully uncompressed 4K/UHD, IP and HDR.

A triple expanding OB truck, UHD2 is home to a range of SAM technology including two Kahuna IP production switchers, IP Multiviewers and with SAM’s IP infrastructure technology providing the backbone. Also in the truck for IBC, SAM’s LiveTouch 4K/UHD replay and highlights system will be used for demonstrations.

Timeline’s UHD2 is designed to support 32 Sony 4K cameras. Its two Kahunas enable SDR and HDR to be run simultaneously along with down converted HD outputs. The set-up allows production teams to work in VSF TR03 (SMPTE ST 2110 draft) – the first time this has been done in an OB truck – enabling Timeline to work with video and audio as separate essence flows within an IP workflow.

Daniel McDonnell, Managing Director at Timeline Television said, “We worked closely with SAM to design a workflow based on the latest IP infrastructure and HDR technology available, providing customers with a highly scalable solution that can meet complex production requirements without the need to add additional OB support. Given the increased number of 4K cameras and replay positions that we wanted to support, IP made perfect sense and SAM’s technology even more so as it afforded us the maximum flexibility and scalability.”
