Gearhouse Broadcast will be demonstrating its OBLite, game-changing fully-equipped, live production HD trailer that can readily house a seven- to eight-person production and operation crew. It’s easy to up- or down-spec as required and offers low power consumption, ergonomic design, while featuring a production gallery, audio workstations and engineering control area.
South African broadcast services provider, Vision View bought the first OBLite trailer in July 2014 to provide coverage for rubgy, football and basketball. It is kitted out with eight Hitachi cameras channels, including seven SK-HD1200 cameras and a SK-HD1500 slow motion camera, a Ross Carbonite vision mixer, Studer Vista audio mixer, an EVS XT2 six channel server and Marshall video monitors, along with full talkback capabilities. The trailer’s production workflow has been designed using Ross Video’s new innovative openTruck blueprint, ensuring increased efficiency, video quality, and the ability to quickly reconfigure the trailer for different events.
Also on display will be the Hitachi SK-UHD4000 4K camera. This is a broadcast 4K ultra-HDTV camera system which can take the 2/3-inch B4 mount lenses used in conventional HD broadcast cameras. It outputs HD and 4K video signals separately, which means that it can be used in the current HD environment while capturing archive or test material in 4K. When demand for a UHD broadcast arises, the SK-UHD4000 is ready to slide into new 4K workflows.
