Broadcast Solutions to showcase a tailor-made ENG at IBC
VRT needed an OB vehicle to develop its news program VRT NWS and Broadcast Solutions has been able to fulfill the expectations of the Belgian public broadcaster. Now, attendees to IBC 2019 (RAI, Amsterdam, 13-17 September) will have the opportunity to see it at Broadcast Solutions’ outdoor stand O.E02. The VTR ENG is part of a large frame contract about seven vehicles.
The news gathering van is based on a Mercedes V-class and is primarily intented to deliver as much flexibility as possible, allowing two people to work even when the van is moving. This allows journalists to prepare the piece they are about to shoot when driving to a location.
The equipment used is an Axon video router and multiviewer, a DHD audio console with Genelec monitors, a workstation running Adobe Premiere and several storage cards. With regard to data transmission, Broadcast Solutions integrated Pepwave LTU transmitters, a TNG system and a LiveU200 for camera mount use.
In addition, de VRT van is equipped with a dedicated power generator. Nonetheless, it has lithium ion batteries to enable up to five hours ofautonomous activity.
