IBC 2017: Videlio takes OBs to the next level
European systems integrator Videlio is exhibiting at IBC this year with its new designs for OBs and studio complexes, that are both IP-based and SMPTE-2110 ready.
For its new fleet of 4K UHD-enabled broadcast vehicles, Arena Television approached Videlio to help it make the jump to IP. The £20 million project included three OBs and one presentation vehicle. OB-X covers the English Premier League in 4K for BT Sport and works in conjunction with new OB12 presentation vehicle that just went live; OB-Y follows the English Rugby Union in HD for Sky Television; and the future OB-Z. The design and installation has been shortlisted for the IBC2017 Innovation Awards in the content distribution category.
When it came to migrating its Canal Factory studios in Boulogne from SDI baseband to IP, the Canal+ Group also selected Videlio. Canal Factory is the production centre for most mainstream programmes of the Canal+ Group, including Le Grand Journal, Touche Pas à Mon Poste, Canal Football Club and more. Working with Videlio, Canal+ completely revamped its existing production, post-production and studios, thus transforming Canal Factory into an IP-based technology showcase of stunning productions for the channels’ viewers.
