Russia’s ANO Sports Broadcasting (Panorama) has bought an innovative two-vehicle outside broadcast unit from the German broadcast specialist and truck builder, Broadcast Solutions. The unit consists of a large MCR vehicle and a support trailer with both a 2.4-metre satellite antenna and a complete flight case-based eight-camera production unit. The mobile Master Control Room is a 38-ton double extendable trailer, with five production areas: feed/line control; supervisor; server control; audio control; and main technical area. The feed/line control area is used for control of input and output signals and has five work places. Up to 160 pictures can be viewed over ten 47-inch Monitors (16 pictures per monitor). The supervisor area is equipped for four operators, while both the server audio areas can each cater for three operators. The router can cope with 120x 3G, HD or SD standard inputs, 144x 3G/HD/SD inputs with processing (de-embedding of audio), 48x 3G/HD/SD inputs with processing via fibre, 240x AES inputs and 12x MADI inputs. It can output 144x 3G/HD/SD standard outputs, 168x 3G/HD/SD outputs with audio embedding, 48x 3G /HD/SD outputs with processing via fibre, 240x AES outputs and 12x MADI outputs. A further 12 frames are equipped with EO and OE converters that can receive and transmit up to 96 3G/HD/SD signals in each direction. To connect different OB vehicles or production sets to the mobile MCR there are 12 Riedel Mediornet Frames. The support vehicle includes an eight-camera flight case production unit that can be used inside or outside of the vehicle. The satellite system is equipped with dual redundant 400W amplifiers, phase combined system, a broadcast SNG antenna with 2.4m reflector diameter, two encoders/modulators for MPEG2/MPEG4 SD/HD video coding in DVB-S and –S2 standard, five IRD for SD/HD reception and six SatModems. The system configuration allows all the eight transmit carriers to be combined at the same time. There is also a 1:1 switched redundancy mode for the encoders/modulators. The vehicle also includes systems for radio communications and receiving DTH digital satellite television, and can handle the typical signals required by the MCR vehicle. – David Foxwww.broadcast-solutions.dewww.panoramahd.ru/en
