IBC 2017: Broadcast Solutions to present full portfolio with 4K/UHD OB vans, studio projects and futureproof wireless communications
Broadcast Solutions will show its full portfolio of services and products at this year’s IBC Show at stand O.E02 and 8.A74. The German based system integrator will show its full expertise on the largest outdoor stand of the show, focusing on system integration solutions with Streamline OB Vans, studio projects, the company’s own cable manufacturing as well as virtual reality solutions.
The indoor stand (8.A74) will emphasise broadcast products. Visitors will find LaON and MANet, examples of cutting edge products for wireless communication and wireless video transport, as well as Broadcast Ultrasoft, a software solution for MAM and automation in studio and playout facilities.
On the outdoor stand the company, one of the largest OB van builders in the world, will show three Streamline OB van units of different sizes. The presence will focus around recent OB builds with a large Streamline S16 4K/UHD OB Van delivered to customer Studio Berlin. The OB van will be one of the highlights of the stand and will – right after the show – head to Berlin for its first production, the German election, taking place 24 September.
The second OB van is a Streamline S8 the company built for NEP Europe. This is a smaller OB van which shows in the essence very well how to build an eight camera 4K/UHD OB van that can be used flexibly in all sorts of productions. The smallest OB van on the stand is a Streamline S4, equipped with additional SNG capability, which was on production recently at the Swimming World Championships in Budapest, deployed by host broadcaster Antenna Hungaria.
Broadcast Solutions will also show examples of recent landmark projects in the realm of fixed broadcast facilities. These underline the company’s expertise in integrating future driven technology in broadcast environments such as IP and network-based solutions, networked production set ups.
With its virtual reality lab visitors to the Broadcast Solutions outdoor stand can test a unique technology in the design and implementation of OB Vans. Used during the planning stage, developers and customers can literary experience, feel, test and change space concepts virtually one-to-one. With this fully developed solution different ideas can be tested and compared and adjustments are made easy. The lab increases workflow efficiency during the planning stage of an OB van, once more pushing the envelope in OB van design and production.
