As a first timer in Europe UFA Show & Factual with the final of “DSDS - Deutschland sucht den Superstar” (a German reality talent show and part of the “Idol” franchise) produced and broadcast a live show in UHD/HDR. The final took place on 5 May 2018 and was produced at MMC Film + Studios Cologne and broadcast in parallel in HD/SDR for the program of RTL Germany and UHD/HDR for the UHD-channel of RTL Germany. Commissioned by UFA GmbH, the new OB9 truck of production service provider Studio Berlin was the linchpin in the realisation of the UHD/HDR-signal. The OB truck, designed and built by Broadcast Solutions GmbH, was explicitly commissioned by Studio Berlin at the beginning of 2017 to work in such elaborate productions – to implement UHD- and HDR-productions flexibly and with ease. For the production of the DSDS-final OB9 was stationed in the MMC Studios in Cologne and produced the UHD/HDR signal on-site.

NEP Belgium run their first unit of the Broadcast Solutions developed Streamline OB Van family. Unit 18, the newly added production vehicle, is an S8L and represents a new variant, the German system integrator added to its Streamline Family of OB Vans. With new room concepts and additional interconnectivity technology, the S8L offers more flexibility during productions and adapts to future IP-based workflows. The OB Van is working in HD and UHD format alike and can handle productions with up to 8 (HD/UHD) cameras. Due to a change in workplace design (the production bench is arranged alongside the driving motion), the S8L stands out with ten comfortable workplaces. Housed in a self-propelled box-body/truck combination, the OB Van offers three separate working areas: Production, Audio, Engineering. An additional novelty refers to more flexible interconnectivity capabilities, using IP-based audio and video bridging devices.
