Systems integrator Broadcast Solutions has selected AXON Digital Design to provide Synapse modular processing equipment for two new high definition outside broadcast (OB) vehicles. The 3Gb/s capable vehicles have been commissioned by Russian broadcast systems company, ANO Sports Broadcasting and will add to its mobile production facilities that are being developed to support the broadcast of the forthcoming Olympic Winter Games in Russia. One vehicle is configured as a large master control room for ANO Sports Broadcasting’s fleet of OB trucks with five discrete areas providing feed/line control, supervisor area, server control, audio control and a main technical area. A second support vehicle contains a flight-case based eight-camera production unit. Also, the vehicle includes a 2.4-meter SNG System. In both trucks, Axon has installed a number of different 3Gb/s capable broadcast glue modules from its Synapse range. These will fulfil a range of signal processing requirements from analogue video D/A to dual-channel up conversion. All basic SD/HD up, down and cross signal conversion and synchronisation is supported by Axon’s GXGO10 module. The GXG010 is a low latency up, down, cross converter with 16 channel audio transparency. The GXG010 are compatible with 270Mb/s, 1.5Gb/s and 3Gb/s for full 1080p/50 or 1080p/59.94 use. Another key component in the vehicle’s production workflow is the Axon GQW220 quad split modules, which control 160 picture feeds that are simultaneously viewed over a bank of ten 47-inch monitors.www.axon.tv
