The implementation for the OB van is scheduled to start end of July. The South Korean systems integrator MBC C&I, part of the MBC group, together with BFE and its South Korean partner Dong Wha AV, will act quickly to integrate KSC CORE into the OB van. The system will play a key role in the vehicle’s setup by controlling and monitoring the broadcast infrastructure as well as 10 4K cameras.
