Italian Broadcaster NVP Selects SAM to Build 4K OB Truck
SAM has stated that NVP, the Italian broadcast production company, has chosen SAM to build a new state-of-the-art 4K OB truck that positions NVP as top quality of 4K OB production in Europe.
SAM worked with long term partner Video Progetti to help design the truck to support NVP’s OB production services that need to encompass SD, HD, UHD, SDR, and HDR content simultaneously. The choice for managing multiformat productions is SAM’s Kahuna switcher, eliminating the need for external conversion.
To support multiformat switching SAM supplied its Sirius 840 router. The high performance router allows any combination of signal formats and processing, with no limitations on signal timing or synchronization, and noredundancy, monitoring or expansion capability.
“Our new OB van ranks amongst the most technologically advanced production units in Europe and is recognized primarly for its technical and operational efficiency,” says Nataliano Pintabona, Founder, Owner and General Manager at NVP. “We use it for the most challenging productions all over Europe. SAM’s technology is a critical piece of the puzzle when it comes to meeting the evolving requirements in the market place. The new truck means we are capable of producing SD, HD, UHD, SDR, and HDR video, as well as leveraging the latest technologies such as IP. SAM’s solutions have really transformed our live production workflow.”
“We worked closely with the teams at NVP and Video Progetti to design the most flexible solution possible, all within the budget constraints that NVP had,” says Robert Szabó-Rowe, EVP and General Manager, Live Production and Infrastructure at SAM. “We are delighted this resulted in an OB truck able to produce the highest quality content for some of the largest and most demanding media organizations around the world.”
