Check. Repair. Go. Check-up for OB vans almost at the speed of light

The demands of live broadcasts – and therefore also the demands on OB vans – are constantly increasing. Regardless of whether viewers follow the content via the Internet or as usual via TV or radio, they demand a fail-safe experience that gets under their skin. To prevent errors in the transmission, the trucks are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment. Deutschlandradio commissioned Sachsenkabel to carry out a check-up of the fiber optic lines of one of its OB vans.

The exciting challenge in this project: to carry out the checks of the components as well as the repair of the defective lines within 24 hours and thus to be able to send the OB van back to its next event as quickly as possible.

That sounds exciting? You can find more details about this project in our reference story!

Optical Fibers for the high-res TV of the future

Conversion to 4K cameras to cause massive change in network structure

4K – the buzzword for realistic, impressive and ultra-highresolution imaging worlds. The demand for series, movies and broadcasts in Ultra-HD resolution will increase sharply in the future. In order to meet this milestone of the new broadcasting quality, the German broadcasting station Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk has converted its camera systems to 4K in five TV studios. The new Sony cameras only have SMPTE interfaces, so the previous copper connection had to be changed to fiber optics.

As part of the conversion of the studio camera systems of the Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk, LWL-Sachsenkabel GmbH was entrusted with the production and supply of the required fiber optic infrastructure in cooperation with a local service provider. Get more information about the project.
