The public broadcaster Belarus TV deployed four new mobile productions sets at the European Games 2019 whose productions tools were recently delivered by Broadcast Solutions.

ISB, the host broadcasters of this competition that includes 15 sports with more than 4.000 participating athletes, trusted in Belarus TV’s resources to cover the opening and closing ceremonies and the events most important sports. The vans were developed and delivered by German system integration company Broadcast Solutions at the start of this year.

Each mobile production set comprises an 18-camera HD OB Van, a four-camera HD flightcase studio and a support vehicle. All four OB Vans have an identical design and works as 20-ton semitrailers with two extensions. Grass Valley provides cameras, vision mixers, video routers, multiviewers and slow motion servers, while Calrec Audio is in charge of broadcast consoles and audio routers. IHSE KVM systems secure access to computers and workstations, and the intercoms are based on Riedel Artist systems.

The flightcase studios also employ Grass Valley cameras, with FOR.A vision mixers and Ross Video routers. Yamaha mixers manage the audio, with KVM systems from Guntermann & Drunck. For orchestration within the OB Vans and flightcase studios, Belarus TV chose Broadcast Solutions’ proprietary control system, hi.

During the event the OB Vans worked smoothly and Broadcast Solutions’ support on-site was just perfect.“
