Austrian broadcaster outfits OB truck with Crystal Vision interface boards
The new OB truck replaces an older, analog vehicle and is being used mainly in Austria and neighboring countries for broadcasting a range of programs.
ORF, Austria's public service broadcaster, has chosen Crystal Vision to equip its new outside broadcast truck with an order for 208 interface boards.
ORF placed the order in October 2004, and the new truck was completed and put into service in June 2005. The new OB truck replaces an older, analog vehicle and is being used mainly in Austria and neighboring countries for broadcasting a range of programs.
The order included 18 different types of interface boards housed in 23 Indigo 2U frames. Of the 208 boards, 130 are being controlled by Statesman software. Synchronization of the external analog or digital signals received by the ORF OB truck is performed either by the DEC105S broadcast decoder and synchronizer or for digital signals by SYN102 synchronizers connected to the routing switcher.
