Streamline Family

The Task

During and after the main conversion from SD to HD a few years ago, all newly constructed HD OB‘s were costly, complex and took ages to procure and deliver. We were then challenged to develop a new set of OB vans that should offer no doubts in respect of their technical abilities, they would have to be cheaper than anything comparable as well as they needed to have a very short delivery time.

The Challenge

Our team of engineers together with specialists from the customer’s side developed a concept that could be adopted to a complete family of OB vans that each meet the needs of different production environments. By creating building blocks or modules we intended to make use of only few modules to create many different final products. Broadcast Solutions’ team developed a line of chassis and furniture and combined all components in modular product lines. On the Audio and Video side the difficulty was to choose the right products that were cost efficient, future proof and modular and as these units were to be used also for high level events, the professional level of the broadcasting equipment needed to be absolutely uncompromised.

The Solution

The Streamline family of OB vans today consist of five different OB’s ranging from 4, 6, 8 to 12 and 16 cameras. Although all Streamline OB’s are pre-engineered and nearly “off-the-shelf” products they offer maximum flexibility and many solutions to the customers’ demands and needs. Streamline OB’s are used in many different productions under all kinds of conditions – from small local sport tournaments or concerts to high-profile international events, literally all over the world.
