NEP equips Australia's first 4K OB trucks with advanced IHSE KVM system
From the Oscars to the Olympics, NEP provides the technology and know-how to produce the world’s biggest live and broadcast events. In Australia, NEP is the country’s largest and most experienced outside broadcast and studio facilities company, providing broadcast infrastructure for major sport and studio productions across the country and internationally.
NEP developed Australia’s first 4K-HD capable OB supertrucks. Two 28-camera, 34-seat vehicles are already in operation, with two further identical trucks nearing completion.
"A centralized KVM system is essential to this design," said Milan Milenkovic, Project Director for NEP Australia. IHSE’s Draco tera KVM switch is connected to a vast range of onboard equipment via control interfaces, allowing operators to connect all computers and devices throughout the truck to their individual workstation using simple keyboard commands. "The IHSE Draco switch is unsurpassed in quality and performance and makes this all possible," Milenkovic said.
"Our sophisticated Draco tera KVM system delivers a tremendous increase in efficiency, especially for such large OB vans," said Manuel Greisinger, Head of Sales at IHSE. "Operators can instantly access any device they need from any workstation; a key advantage in live productions where every second counts."
