South Korean Broadcaster SBS relies on Broadcast Solutions
Broadcaster SBS brought into service in 2016 its UHD 1 OB Van. Conceived and built by Broadcast Solutions GmbH, the OB Van is the first ever 12G-SDI UHD single link production vehicle to date. UHD 1 is based on a new Streamline variant, called Alphaline, which comes with special workplace design, room concept and with reduced length in order to cope with the special conditions of South Korean roads.
The OB works with up to 12 4K/UHD cameras on the basis of 12G-SDI UHD Single Link and offers sufficient 3G-SDI Quad Link gateways for monitoring purposes. The OB offers sufficient space for teams of up to 18 people working smoothly, as the company confirms. The OB Van passed its first test when producing the ISU World Cup Short Track Speed Skating competition at Gangneung, South Korea. During development and manufacturing of the OB as well as for support during its first production Broadcast Solutions again teamed up with South Korean partner company DongYang Digital (DYD).
The SBS OB Van works with 12G-SDI UHD Single Link format, using Ikegami cameras and vision mixers. For video-routing and multiviewers SBS relies on Evertz equipment.
