February 3, 2008
Outside Broadcast, one of Belgium’s leading OB van production facilities providers, has chosen Avitech multiviewers for the monitoring of multiple HD and SD video and audio signals.
Outside Broadcast’s new HD Unit 14 OB van has been designed to specialize in a variety of Belgium and European productions including sporting and gaming events, concerts and more. Built with quality in mind, the OB van has been outfitted with high-end SD/HD equipment including Avitech’s multviewers driving Neovo X-W19 displays, Sony cameras, a Thomson Kayak HD 450 production switcher, an NVISION 3Gb matrix, EVS slo-mo servers and a Lawo mc266 audio console.
Each Avitech MCC-8004U multiviewer module handles up to four auto-detect HD-SDI, SD-SDI/composite video inputs and provides a high-quality output resolution of up to 1920 x 1200. Cascading modules allow the display of the desired number of sources per monitor. The Avitech systems are designed to work efficiently in outside production environments, offering key features such as accepting HD-SDI, SD-SDI and analog video sources with auto-detect capability; embedded audio monitoring, parallel and serial tally; low power consumption; and on-screen alarm indicators for video and audio status — while maintaining the correct aspect ratio whether it’s 4:3 or 16:9.
