Broadcast Solutions Builds New HD/UHD Control Facilities for NEP Sweden

With New Control Rooms NEP Sweden Goes for Permanent Install at Country’s Largest TV-Studios

NEP Sweden runs a large studio facility on the outskirts of Stockholm that houses three studios, of which studio 1 is the largest in Sweden at all. To handle the many productions even better and more efficiently, NEP Sweden decided to integrate fixed control rooms in the studio facility and assigned Broadcast Solutions GmbH with the project. Previously all productions were realised with OB Vans added to the building. In a close cooperation German system integrator Broadcast Solutions GmbH joined forces with NEP Sweden for planning and implementation of the HD/UHD control rooms.

The Stockholm studio facility is Sweden’s top location for productions of large programs with up to 1,600 spectators, including nationwide hits such as "Idol" or "Stjärnornas stjärna". Within just two months, from the start of detailed planning to commissioning, Broadcast Solutions implemented the ambitious project with a total of 200 m2 of space with two large production desks and 8x55" multiviewers, one 5.1 audio room, one engineering room and CAR. The first show broadcasted with the new rooms was the production of the show "Stjärnornas stjärna" on 17 March, which went off without a hitch.

Jens Envall, Technical Director at NEP Sweden, comments: “We decided to integrate fixed installed control rooms in our large studios to be more flexible and to work more efficiently at large productions. The time-schedule to implement the whole system was very demanding. But the Broadcast Solutions team delivered on time, and the result is just perfect. The new approach allows many different opportunities our customers demand from NEP Sweden.”

Hans Huber, Business Unit Manager at Broadcast Solutions, commented on the challenges of the project: "The extremely short time-period for implementation required a very in-depth and forward-looking planning of all processes and trades on-site and a lot of flexibility of all involved to react quickly to unforeseeable challenges. Thanks to our highly skilled and collaborative working team, project handover to the customer took place in time."
