Gearhouse Purchases 14
SAM Alchemist Converters

B

uilding upon its longstanding
relationship with SAM, global
rental house, SI and OB provider
Gearhouse Broadcast has announced
the purchase and availability of 14
Alchemist HD SDI converters for its
customers.
These are in strong demand by
broadcasters for HD coverage of the
upcoming Rio 2016 Olympic Games in
Brazil this summer, and the UEFA Euro
2016 Football Championships being
held in France in June.
Headquartered in the UK, Gearhouse
Broadcast has been serving the
broadcast market for 20 years with
offices in Paris, Qatar, Australia and
the United States. The Alchemist
converter delivers unrivalled quality
that puts Gearhouse ahead of its
competition and gives its customers
the best possible options within
their HD productions. This is hugely
impactful in a live sports production
context.

Edward Tischler, Head of Projects
at Gearhouse Broadcast commented:
"We've used Alchemist for several
years and we're continually impressed
with its clean and detailed format
and framerate conversions. We're
delighted to continue our relationship
with SAM. We've had a significant
number of broadcasters contact us
to rent Alchemist, and we expect that
interest to grow as these two major
sporting events draw closer."
Alchemist
Ph.C-HD
provides
broadcasters with a complete, onebox system solution that seamlessly

converts between 1080p, HD, and SD
broadcast standards and formats.
It relies on SAM's proprietary Ph.C
motion estimation technology to
deliver the best possible quality in a
live broadcast environment.
Neil Maycock, EVP Marketing at
SAM commented: "A great standards
converter is essential to a live sports
broadcast because the quality of the
final broadcast output needs to be
perfect.
"The fact that broadcasters around
the world are entrusting their content
to SAM's Alchemist for HD coverage

SAM Alchemist Ph.C-HD converter

of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games
and the UEFA Euro 2016 Football
Championships is a testament to
the product's performance and the
stunning picture quality it generates.
"We're delighted that working with
Gearhouse ensures they are able to
satisfy the demands of their customers
and provide them with the high level of
service their customers have come to
rely on."
This recent purchase adds to
Gearhouse's existing fleet of nine
Alchemist units, which now total 23.

Hitachi 'All Under One Roof'
Showcase

Hitachi's OB-BOX concept

A

t CABSAT, Hitachi Kokusai
Electric Turkey will present a
new and radically different broadcast
systemisation capability.
From the latest generation of 4K
broadcast system cameras, to the
latest developments in its OB-BOX
concept and mobile transmission
vehicles capable of supporting fieldbased satellite transmissions, the
company offers advanced international
broadcast system solution capabilities,
all under one roof.
On display at CABSAT will be the
latest advances in Hitachi's OB-BOX, a

Hitachi Mobile Transmission Vehicle

fully featured modular OB facility
that provides self-operating
4-in-1 capabilities, replacing
four different vehicles, the OBBOX has capabilities that include
those of a DSNG link vehicle,
production resource vehicle,
generator truck and OB truck.
Production equipment installed
within OB-Box includes Hitachi's SKHD1300 MOS Series 3G Production
Cameras, a 2ME vision switcher, a
48x48 router, a six-in / two-out slowmotion server, sophisticated graphic
manipulation capabilities and a digital
audio switcher.
The OB-BOX comes fitted with an
18.5 KVA generator, helping to ensure
reliable and robust independent
operation in even the harshest
environments. It also has 54,000 BTU
fully redundant air conditioning and
cooling systems.
"12 months after introducing OBBOX, we return to CABSAT with a

concept that provides everything that
a broadcaster will need at significantly
lower cost and shorter production
cycles than traditional OB solutions,"
said Cemal Yilmaz, General Manager of
Hitachi Kokusai Turkey.
Another example of Hitachi's 'All
Under One Roof' capabilities, the
company's
Mobile
Transmission
Vehicle is designed to enable a
broadcaster to get to the news scene
and quickly establish links back to
the production centre, the off-road
vehicle features an on-board 75Ka 'On
The Move' antenna, which utilises a
combination of Yahsat and LiveU 3G
communications to provide rugged and

stable satellite communications
direct from the field.
Completing this extensive
technology showcase, Hitachi
Kokusai
will
exhibit
the
broadcast market's largest
range of system cameras. These
include the SK-UHD4000 4K
Ultra-HDTV broadcast camera system.
This camera system provides advanced
4K UHD performance capabilities and
a straightforward upgrade pathway
since it can use the 2/3-inch B4 mount
lenses found in conventional HD
broadcast cameras.
Other Hitachi cameras on display at
CABSAT include: the SK-HD1300 MOS
Series 3G 1080p production camera;
the 1080i "Z-HD6000" portable,
dockable HDTV studio and EFP camera
with three 2/3-inch MOS 2.6 megapixel
sensors providing 1100TV resolution;
the DK-H200 3G 1080p Box Type POV
camera; the 16-bit SK-HD1500 highspeed HD production camera.
