Sign of the times for OB11 September 2016
Supporting the biggest global events, television studios, or sporting spectacles, TV coverage specialist AMP Visual TV has one of the most extensive European fleets of OB vans for video productions, and Riedel is here at IBC talking about its involvement in the company’s latest truck.
AMP Visual TV’s Millenium Signature 12 (MS12) HD/4K-capable OB van supports up to 40 cameras on a Riedel MediorNet real time media network of unprecedented scale.
Due to its modular design and mobile partition system, MS12 can turn into a two-in-one OB truck capable of conducting joint operations with two production areas, two audio mixers, two
vision rooms and up to 42 modular workspaces.
AMP Visual TV’s approach relies on a robust MediorNet infrastructure – one of Riedel’s biggest so far – that offers benefits by replacing the traditional router, providing video, audio, data and intercom transport, and delivering routing and processing capabilities.
Deployed in a fully redundant configuration built on a 10Gbps fibre network, 68 MicroN high-density signal interfaces, eight MetroN core routers, three MediorNet Compact Pros, and two MediorNet Modular frames combine to serve as a decentralised matrix.
Reidel described the MS12 as a ‘unique OB van concept’, with router elements situated in the ideal physical location for any given workflow or production.
