SBS-Korea acquires new Outside Broadcast Production Equipment

South Korean’s national television and radio network, SBS, based in Seoul has acquired three Leader LV5490 4K test instruments for a new outside broadcast production truck.

Built at Broadcast Solutions’ headquarters in Bingen am Rhein, the project is believed to be the world’s first 12G-SDI single-link production vehicle. SBS UHD1 employs the two-sample interleave UHD standard and accommodates up to 12 4K/UHD cameras. It also offers 3G-SDI quad link monitoring gateways.

“South Korea was a very early adopter of UHD TV,” comments Broadcast Solutions CTO Rainer Kampe. “This new truck, UHD1, is based on the Alphaline variant of our Streamline OB vehicle family. It is designed for use by up to 17 operating staff. Alphaline comes with special workplace design, room concept and reduced length in order to cope with the special conditions of South Korean roads.” (C+T Mag)
