Belgium’s VRT adds Wohler AMP1-16-3G to SNG vehicle
Belgium's Flemish Radio and Television Network (VRT), the public broadcasting network of the Flemish community, has deployed the Wohler Technologies AMP1-16-3G.
The 3G- and Dolby-capable monitor is equipped with three OLED display screens capable of advanced monitoring of 16 channels of audio and displaying source video simultaneously in 1RU. The unit was installed in VRT's newly refurbished HD SNG van to simplify audio/video monitoring of multichannel productions.
VRT debuted its new AMP1-16-3G for live HD (1080i50) transmission of the Belgacom Memorial Van Damme 2009 track and field meet at the Stade Roi Baudouin in Brussels. The broadcast represented VRT's first hosting and transmission of an HD sports event. The live signal was received and rebroadcast by countries around the world.
