BTS: Huge Success at IBC 2012

HD OBVan for Qatar Television

The first presence of BTS broadcast technology solutions at IBC 2012 was an overwhelming success. Hundreds of potential clients visited the OB van exhibited at IBC and were impressed by the skills of the BTS staff and the advanced technologies inside the van. It was the record breaking OB van number 555 since the re-start of the company in 1951.

“The positive resonance of all visitors by far surpassed our already optimistic expectations. We were able to generate very promising leads for future business, especially in the Middle East where our competence is already well known. All customers appreciated our new independence and the opportunity to select best-of-class components in order to deliver the best possible solution for the different requirements” explains Ewald Fehlauer, Managing Director of BTS broadcast technology solutions.
