B

exel has announced that the
company is upgrading its lighting
inventory with the addition of 300
brand-new Litepanels Astra 6X LED
panels.

The new lights will be key components in Bexel's ongoing support of
customers who require turnkey lighting solutions in any location at outdoor
sporting venues.
"The new Astra 6X panels are not
only brighter, but they offer the versatility sports broadcasters need to
light the announce booth or just about
any location for an on-camera shot or
interview - the football sideline, the
locker room, the basketball courtside,
the baseball dugout, or in the pits for
NASCAR," said Lee Estroff, Vice President, Account Development at Bexel.
"Litepanels lights have been in our
inventory for more than five years, and
their quality and reliability have made
them highly popular with our clients.
We're making this major investment
in the Astra 6X to keep our lighting
inventory on the leading edge and give
our customers the brightness and flexibility they need for any venue and in

all types of conditions."
As announced at the 2017
NAB Show, the next-generation Litepanels Astra 6X LED
panel is 50% brighter than
the first-generation Astra
light and six times brighter
than Litepanels' original 1 x 1

EUROMEDIA Accelerates
UHD Deployment
E

UROMEDIA has accelerated its
deployment of UHD OB trucks,
with two units A21 and B40 on site at
the recent Monaco Grand Prix.
They were used in the first major
production of the international signal
in UHD on behalf of the Automobile
Club of Monaco.
The B40 truck has been upgraded
to support key live broadcasts in 4K
and can now provide image quality
that is four times better than HD for
the prestigious Monaco Grand Prix.
Out of service for almost a month, the
B40 truck's upgrade was modelled on
the A21 vehicle, which has received
unanimous praise since its release in
January. The OB truck was completely
rebuilt from the ground up using highend design technology. This new fullUHD truck has a GVG Kayenne K-Frame
switcher, a SAM router and glue,
Evertz multiviewers as well as Vutrix
and Penta broadcast monitors.
Given the scale of the UHD

production deployed in Monaco, a
technical crew of around one hundred
worked all out to install a total of 52
cameras including 46 Sony cameras,
four Panasonic cameras and two 4K
Superloupes from Digital Video Sud.
The A21 truck handled the world feed,
while the B40 produced footage of the
grandstands and specific cameras. The
feeds were transmitted via Monaco
Telecom's fibre-optic system to
which 14 kilometres of hybrid fibreoptic cable had been added for the
cabling of all the cameras. The slow
motion replays were recorded by the
LSM servers in 1080/5P and then
upconverted to UHD, as were the four
LiveTools Technology wireless links in
the grandstands.
Gaël Tanguy, Technical Director
at EUROMEDIA said: "Each year
in Monaco we accomplish a major
production feat by using all the
available resources of one single
OB truck and moving workstations

to another OB unit. This year the
technological challenge consisted in
[us] maintaining the same number
of cameras and using the combined
resources of the two UHD units."
Lionel Vialaneix, Chairman of EUROMEDIA added: "As soon as the Grand
Prix was over, the A21 truck went

EUROMEDIA
utilised two UHD
trucks in Monaco

directly to Sochi in Russia to produce
3G coverage of the Confederations Cup
football tournament for HBS. The B40
truck returned to Paris to cover the
TOP 14 finals in UHD for Canal+ before
tackling another technological innovation for France Télévisions at Roland
Garros."
