STV Minsk rolls out new HD OB truck in time for 2019 European Games
Ahead of the 2019 European Games in Minsk opening this Friday, Stolichnoe Televidenie (STV) Minsk commissioned a new HD OB truck. The broadcaster will support the June 21-30 European Games with equipment and services.
The Belarus national broadcaster – one of three across the country – has deployed six Grass Valley LDX 82 cameras, two LDX 86 HighSpeed cameras, a 2ME Kahuna 4800 production switcher, NVISION 8144 router and the K2 DynoS replay system. The broadcaster benefits from integration with its main production facility, which houses Grass Valley infrastructure, cameras and production switchers.
Kanstantsin Auramenka, deputy general director at STV Minsk commented: “Making the transition to HD is a pivotal point in our evolution as a broadcaster and it is important for us to work with a partner that not only understands our business but can also deliver solutions that help us respond to the changing needs of our audience.
“As the leader in live production, Grass Valley was the most suitable company who can deliver the end-to-end system that we wanted. We have worked with them in the past and know first-hand that their systems are reliable and flexible, allowing us to handle a wide range of productions from sports to news, all with stunning images.”
Designed and built by system integrator and coach builder, TVC, in Lithuania, STV Minsk’s new OB unit is optimised with the flexibility required to support a range of production needs as it aims to deliver more coverage of sports, live events and concerts to its viewers.
