Ekstraklasa Live Park on Production With New OB Van by Broadcast Solutions

Polish Broadcaster Ekstraklasa Live Park Live on Production With New OB Van by Broadcast Solutions GmbH

Ekstraklasa Live Park, Broadcaster for the Polish Football Premier League, is live on production with its new production tool – a Streamline S12 OB Van. Yet another Streamline OB Van delivered by German system integrator Broadcast Solutions GmbH. The 12 camera OB Van was delivered in the first quarter of 2016 and is already on production for Polish football league Ekstraklasa. In cooperation with NEP Sweden (former Mediatec) Broadcast Solutions built and delivered this OB Van to Ekstraklasa Live Park within only 3 month time from order to delivery.

For Ekstraklasa Live Park the Streamline S12 is the first OB Van owned by the company directly. Previously using rented production tools Live Park decided to run its own OB Van and trusted in the services and designs of Broadcast Solutions GmbH in Germany. Key factors for Ekstraklasa Live Park for choosing an OB Van builder were compact design, short delivery time and reasonable costs. With this OB Van – member of the Streamline Family – the German company perfectly met the customer’s expectations.

Marcin Serafin, COO with Ekstraklasa Live Park, on the decision to choose Broadcast Solutions: “We were looking for an experienced company which can guarantee top level quality. As Broadcast Solutions produced a lot of OB’s the last couple of years and the quality is proved by other clients we decided to cooperate with the company. Another very important aspect was the time of delivery. We only had 3 months for the complete project, and Broadcast Solutions did it just in time - without any delays!”


Although the Streamline OB Vans are pre-engineered and offer high-standard technology when it comes to coach-building, broadcast hardware and workspace solutions they impress with short delivery times, state-of the-art technology and price advantages. The result is an OB Van with short delivery times but with maximum reliability, quality and durability. Even though the Streamline OB Vans are technically advanced production tools, they are easy to manage. Since each Streamline OB Van is similar in its overall design, alternating production teams easily feel at home – which reduces setup times. An important major factor for the success of Broadcast providers in the live production business.

To the customer the OB Van convinced with its overall design and flexibility due to the integration of a sophistic control system with high-class equipment like Lawo and Riedel that offers Ekstraklasa Live Park the maximum flexibility during productions. Additionally the OB Van offers a full network based embedding / de-embedding / frame-synchronisation system.

Ekstraklasa Live Park’s Streamline OB Van is dedicated to Ekstraklasa games. It will be used in more than 100 football game productions per year. Additionally the company will also produce galas, concerts and further sports and special events.
