NEP Switzerland, Streamline S12 4K

The Task

To develop a Streamline OB Van with full 4K functionality by employing the well-established Streamline concept and pushing it to the next stage with 4K and new room concepts. One major task was a short delivery time.

The Challenge

In 2016 Broadcast Solutions delivered a 12 camera UHD OB truck to NEP Switzerland that offers full 4K functionality and 20 workplaces. The production area includes a 8 M/E Grass Valley Karrera K-Frame with 96 HD 3G/24 UHD IN x 48 HD 3G out/12 UHD out and a 3 M/E Karrera control panel. All video signals are displayed on NEC UHD Monitors with Imagine Multiviewers. The signal distribution is realized via an Imagine 256x238 matrix. The Riedel MicroN Audio- Video Core Processing System opens up possibilities to scale for future IP-workflows.

Audio and video control rooms are equipped with Genelec 5.1 monitoring; in the audio area a Lawo mc2 56 console with 48 faders and a Lawo Nova 73 compact 5120x5120 matrix is employed. Also integrated are a Riedel Artist 128 x 128 intercom system and the VSM control system. 12 cameras from Panasonic AKC-UC 3000 were delivered with Canon lenses. The OB Van can switch to HD using up to 20 HD cameras.

The Solution

With less than 6 months for developing and building the Streamline S12 4K, NEP Switzerland received the vehicle in time with no delay. With the sophisticated KVM system, thought-through room concept and powerful audio section the OB can be used very flexibly and impresses with short setup times. Due to the familiar overall design engineers and operators feel at home.
