EVP picks Snell router for new OB unit26 November 2013
Swiss production company EVP has added a Snell Sirius 830 hybrid router to its new HD outside broadcast vehicle, HD-10. The Sirius 830 switches all audio and video inputs and outputs for the new truck, which also features a range of modules from the Snell IQ Modular line to support distribution, ARC and up/down conversion.
HD-10 is a 12-camera midsized OB unit designed for coverage of a wide range of live events including sports, conferences and concerts. The Sirius 830 is configured for 288 inputs and outputs.
"As we have relied on Snell products for more than 25 years, we have complete confidence in their reliability and their consistently high-quality broadcast output," commented L.P. Roger, founder and owner, EVP. "We think of the Sirius 830 as the heart of Unit HD-10, which is playing an important role in our efforts to extend market share throughout Switzerland and Europe."
"Sirius 830 is the ideal solution to provide the robust, no-compromise functionality EVP needs to drive its OB operations," added Stefan Geradts, Snell sales director, Central and Eastern Europe. "As one of Europe’s most respected production companies, EVP places a high value on innovation and leading-edge technologies. We value our long-term partnership and look forward to meeting EVP’s needs into the future."
