Kiloview implements its solutions in the world’s first fully NDI OB Truck

Kiloview and YouKu, part of Alibaba group, have jointly completed the first full-NDI Outside Broadcast truck.

It is an all-electric truck that has been built as the result of four years of cooperation between the two companies. The solution has also recently debuted in live video caster and remote production systems.

NDI OBV provides the ability to produce 20 channels of 4K video or 70 channels of HD video over a single Ethernet cable. Kiloview has implemented its wide ecosystem of video encoding/decoding, transmission, routing, monitoring, recording, and content management solutions. Specifically, it has CubeX1 for NDI multiplexed distribution; Cube R1 for NDI recording; LinkDeck for the whole ecosystem management; and Kilolink server for the platform management.

“I’m extremely excited and proud to say that our completely IP-based solution is now fully mobile and that we are covering all the elements and processes of video transmission within the confines of this new NDI OBV truck,” sentenced Jacob Zuo, CEO and co-founder of Kiloview.

“Until now, single teams weren’t able to finish an OB truck project, covering the whole workflow with NDI tech alone; that’s the whole video production process from the encoding, production, recording, and post-production, even with effects like slo-mo,” commented Zeng Wei, Senior A/V Technician at YouKu. “But now we’ve integrated all the NDI and IP-based tech into one vehicle, and we believe this is the first one of its kind in the world.”
