BBC relies on Snell & Wilcox Kahuna for 2006 FIFA World Cup

The BBC is using the Snell & Wilcox Kahuna SD/HD multiformat production switcher to enable standard and high definition coverage of the 2006 FIFA World Cup from studios and facilities in Munich and Berlin.

Kahuna systems installed at both sites allow production staff to work with both SD and HD sources in the same mainframe, integrate them seamlessly into production and supply transmission feeds simultaneously in both formats.

A 4M/E Kahuna system in Berlin and 2M/E system in Munich — both provided and installed by GearHouse Broadcast — will allow the BBC production team and switcher operators to choose from a wide variety of sources SD and HD cameras, VTRs and graphics systems regardless of format.
