CS2 Systems builds dual OB for SuperSport
Leeds-based C2S Systems, the systems integration arm of WTS, has completed the second of two unusual two-part HD outside broadcast units for South African broadcaster, SuperSport, writes TVB Europe’s David Fox.The project was commissioned in October 2010 following completion of a three-studio complex by C2S Systems for SuperSport and sister company, M-Net, in Nigeria. The first half of the project, OB1, was delivered in April this year. The two OB’s were ordered as part of SuperSport’s expansion and upgrade plan, to provide enhanced coverage of Nigerian football and basketball in HD, freeing the current fleet for coverage of other sports and events. Both new OBs will also be used as general production units for M-Net.
