Broadcast Solutions is Introducing a New Class of HD Production Van

The "Compact 5" will be at IBC at Stand OE104

The system integrator and OB truck specialist Broadcast Solutions from Bingen/Gemany will introduce a new unique OB production vehicle at IBC’2010 which sets the mark for a new class of functionality.

“Compact 5” is an extremely versatile 5-camera production van for fast News- and Sports-Production. A ProSat Uplink unit is fully integrated. The basic idea was formed in cooperation with Protel in Stockholm who had recognized the possibility to combine the absolute latest compact equipment with the new way of performing sports productions.

The 3.5t / 6m Mercedes Sprinter features up to 5 cameras with slowmotion and highlight edit and FOR-A’s new compact 1.5-M/E switcher HVS-350HS with 24 HD/SD/DVI inputs and built-in multiviewers. FOR-A also provided their realtime graphics system (video writer) FVW-500HS and character generator VTW-330HS through their dealer Protel in Sweden, who are supporting sales & service of Broadcast Solutions in Scandinavia.


Stefan Breder of Broadcast Solutions explains: ”This compact van provides unprecedented functionality, similar to larger OB trucks, but at a handy size and weight which fits on all regular roads. This could only be achieved by implementing FOR-A’s unique new compact switcher, easy to use Sports graphics and Abekas new compact 8 channel HD slow-mo server “MIRA””.
