We manufacture OB vans according to your wishes – or you can choose an OB van from our pre-configured Streamline series.
Broadcast Solutions produces your OB Van according to brief and tailor-made to your needs. There are (almost) no limits to make your idea a reality. Our range of mobile production equipment covers all applications, from small OB Vans with four cameras to large mobile units with 30 or more cameras used at the largest sports and live events in the world.
With our Streamline OB Vans, we have transformed the process of construction into a product ranging from four to 16 cameras, covering all common production scenarios. All Streamline OB Vans are pre-configured, offer similar technical equipment, space and workflow concepts, making them extremely cost effective and quick to deliver – we always have vehicles and trailers in stock. Alongside the cost advantages at purchase, the vehicles offer many benefits in daily live operation. Due to the identical design and equipment, set-up times and the training effort of the teams are considerably lower.
We equip all Broadcast Solutions OB Vans, whether individual or from our Streamline series, with the latest technology and scalable solutions (HD, UHD, HDR, IP connectivity) to gear them up for future technical and production-related innovations.
As standard models, we are offering the BS-SUPPORT-VAN (based on a self-driving chassis) and the BS-TENDER-VAN (based on a trailer) and equipped with the following features.
Access-point for used OB trucks is the company’s new website: used.broadcast-solutions.de. With the new service, the company uses its know-how and expertise in developing and building OB trucks for customers all around the world and offers expert advice and consultancy during the sales process of used OB Vans.
Within the new business unit, Broadcast Solutions acts as the agent mediating between the seller and prospective new customers of used OB trucks. Part of the service is, of course, refurbishments of the used OBs, depending on the overall condition and the needs of the buyer. The company will also use its technical expertise to advise of potential changes that could be possible and technology choices which may work for the new owner. Identifying necessary technical upgrades for the vehicles to be future-proof investments is a huge benefit for both parties, causing a frictionless sales process and adding more options for the use of certain vehicles.
In early April 2020, RTBF, Belgium’s public broadcaster for the country’s French-speaking community, took delivery of the first of two groundbreaking, full-IP OB trucks. Due to the COVID-19 lockdown, the 12 m long trailer had to be configured remotely using TeamViewer, a few web cameras and microphones for confirmation purposes as well as via VPN in order to be delivered on time. The second identical OB truck, also built by Broadcast Solutions, will arrive in July.
