Systems integrator and coachbuilder TVC and outside broadcast production company Croatel continue their long lasting and successful relationship. Last year both companies embarked to build the UHD 4K OB van. This was the first 4K endeavour for both companies with numerous challenges and tough technical decisions along the way. Croatel OB5 UHD 4K has been in operations for a year already and lessons learned can now be shared with the broadcast audience.
The company’s history started back in 1976, with the TV Broadcast institute in Šiauliai (Lithuania), where all the broadcast equipment for CIS countries and OB vans were manufactured for the Moscow Olympic games in the summer of 1980. In 1996, following the Soviet Union collapse, a team of engineers established TVC. Over the years, the company has constantly grown and now works on projects around the globe.
Euro 2016 proved the power of live TV, its capacity to bring people together and its emotional impact across generations. Broadcasters throughout Europe have reasons to be proud of the audience figures achieved during the championship. Live sports events such as the Euros are usually enjoyed on TV sets. However, TV is now available everywhere and on every screen, and more and more viewers can watch games on tablets, smartphones or computer screens – either live or on-demand. The fully audited global figures for the matches will not be known for some time, but broadcasters are already confident that the numbers for the France – Portugal final have surpassed the 299 million viewers worldwide who watched the Spain – Italy final in 2012.

Built in a mere ten months and inaugurated in 1898, the Vienna Volksoper is the Austrian capital’s other prestigious opera house. It is what Austrians like to call a “repertory theatre”, i.e. a venue that stages opera, operetta, ballet, and musical comedy productions—around 300 shows each season (September through June).
No yacht race comes more extreme than the Volvo Ocean Race – encircling the globe over a course of 45,000 nautical miles, facing waves of over 40m and extremes temperature ranges from -5 to 40°C. The 22m length yachts cross 4 oceans in an event stopping at 12 ports as teams battle it out on racing legs lasting more than 20 days across a global course lasting 9 months. And for the crew, all of this with only a single change of clothing! It is perhaps no surprise that this extreme challenge should become a sporting event made for TV viewing.
