Timeline Television will bring a number of its OB trucks to the MediaCity event.

Timeline Television will launch its state-of-the-art triple expanding IP 4K HDR 32-camera outside broadcast truck on Tuesday 16th May on the piazza in MediaCityUK, Manchester.  The showcase will take place less than a month before the truck, UHD2, becomes the subject of a special case study at SVG Europe’s SportTech event at the Emirates Stadium, London, on 7 June.

UHD2 has been designed and built by Timeline Television to include the latest IP infrastructure and HDR technology. Other OB trucks on display include Europe’s first 4K UHD truck, UHD1, 4K production and uplink truck, RF1, mid-sized 4K truck, OB16, and our ultra-compact truck, Streamline.

“This new outside broadcast truck will provide fully uncompressed IP capability to broadcasters,” said Daniel McDonnell, managing director, Timeline Television. “For our customers, it means we can scale and expand our facilities with ease to meet their demands. The IP technology will provide support for up to 32, 4K UHD cabled Sony 4300 cameras and 12, 4K UHD EVS servers.”

Timeline has worked closely with SAM to build the brand new unit.

Robert Szabó Rowe, EVP and General Manager, Live Production and infrastructure SAM, commented: “SAM understands how important partnerships are when developing and deploying new technology. We are proud that Timeline has selected a range of SAM equipment, including the IP kahuna production switcher, IP multi viewer and our range of IP infrastructure, to ensure they have the most flexible and competitive offering in the market.”

Timeline’s outside broadcast fleet and team will be on the piazza in MediaCityUK on Tuesday 16 May, from 12-6pm, providing tours and demonstrations of 4K IP workflows.
