Outside Broadcasters Feel The Pinch Cont.
Alfacam is a partner in the project which is being researched and developed at the University of Leuven and nano-electronics institute Imec also based in Leuven. Alfacam’s resources include 20 HD trucks, 340 HD cameras (36 of which are superslow mos) and 60 EVS servers. It has embarked on a phase of expansion, doing do organically rather than through acquisition. Ferhervari has built the business from scratch into one of Europe’s largest players – a regular at every world sports event from Olympics to World Cup - says the size of home market plays a big part in his plans. “Belgium is small – we have to look to our neighbours and then overseas,” he says. “The biggest countries in Europe are France and Germany with 60-80m yet that is dwarfed by the likes of Brazil and India. Those markets are vast and growing.” No coincidence then that Alfacam has opened offices in both places, busy with a host of cricket contracts in India and gearing itself for the World Cup 2014 and Olympics 2016 in Brazil. “In Rio we run three big trucks to provide trucks for local broadcasters like TV Globo and we can certainly serve European broadcasters wanting to rent facilities there. Sixty-five per-cent of our business comes from outside Europe. That is where the growth in the OB is coming from.”

Broadcast Networks Showcases Sony’s Media Backbone HDXchange In An Off-Road Live Production Vehicle at IBC 2011
Systems Integration specialist Broadcast Networks will showcase its latest ‘go anywhere’ live production vehicle at IBC 2011. Featuring Sony’s Media Backbone HDXchange server, the custom-built Land Rover Discovery is designed for a one or two-person team and will be on show at the Sony booth 12.A10 at the RAI Centre Amsterdam from September 9-14. Acclaimed for the design and build of quality broadcast and media systems, Broadcast Networks has worked closely with Sony on many projects worldwide over a number of years, including the new 3D production OB vehicle for Norway’s OB-Team which is also on show at IBC 2011. This latest collaboration came about as a direct response to market demand for small, high quality and durable live production vehicles that can be rapidly deployed with minimal crew, in situations where larger OB vehicles are either unsuitable or too costly to operate. Sony Media Backbone HDXchange offers a collaborative network-editing environment where material can be ingested, stored and edited on the fly. It allows a number of cameras to be linked to a server-based recording system that captures their output without the need for a large production team. The Live Ingest system also enables a single operator to create a simple ‘cut edit’ list whilst the camera feeds are being recorded, effectively reducing overall editing time. Once the event is recorded, the data can be taken to the broadcaster’s facility and transferred onto the main post production server for final editing and transmission. Media Backbone HDXchange is quick to set up and easy to operate, thus also reducing training and operational costs. Broadcast Networks’ ‘live ingest’ solution features Media Backbone HDXchange contained within a Land Rover Discovery 4, one of the most versatile and durable four-wheel drive vehicles on the market. Inside the vehicle, a central working area has been created that can be operated by a one or two-person production team. The rear interior has been stripped and fitted with a sliding custom-built rack (for ease of use and servicing) and features a 5KVA 240V generator. Tom Haye, Managing Director of Broadcast Networks, says: “With a smaller equipment footprint and reduced power requirements, our vehicle platform is ideal for any media company involved in the rapid generation, editing and content delivery from regional TV companies to specialist production companies covering niche interest events, such as music and sport in difficult venues that larger OB rigs would find impossible to access. It is also well suited to content providers in emerging markets where there is minimal broadcast infrastructure, but where efficient fuel consumption and reliability in extreme terrains is essential.” Felip Garcia, Product Manager at Sony, says: “Before direct ingest onto server was possible, VTR decks would have been required to record the same event. The space required for this alone would have precluded the possibility of such a system in a relatively small vehicle. We are delighted that Broadcast Networks has recognised the advantages of our Media Backbone HDXchange server system and has had the vision to incorporate it into such a highly desirable ‘go anywhere’ vehicle. We believe it is a technical solution that will prove extremely attractive across a number of markets.” Broadcast Networks has recently agreed a worldwide support deal with Land Rover to offer full vehicle warranty for DSNG and Live Production vehicles. With a complete full-cycle offering, from design and build to servicing the modified vehicle itself, this live production unit is an even more attractive proposition for many broadcasters - reducing the business risks of deployment and operational stress.
