An expanded OB van that features a 12G-SDI infrastructure to support 4K HDR productions, is outfitted with a broad suite of Riedel’s state-of-the-art signal processing and intercom solutions, and is able to accommodate up to 20 technicians, has been rolled out by Nishio Rent All, a Japanese provider of rental equipment.
Riedel’s MediorNet real-time video network, Artist digital matrix intercom and Bolero wireless intercom equipment provide the communications infrastructure for the van’s coverage of high-profile live sports matches, concerts, and other events.
MediorNet real-time signal transport, processing and routing technology allows productions to exchange the full range of audio, video, and data signals within a single unit, eliminating the need for multiple optical transmitters. By supporting the full range of MUX, DMUX, and FS functions, MediorNet enables Nishio system operators to monitor connection status with easy-to-use software.
Bolero’s ability to assign six separate conference keys and ports makes it easy for crane camera operators to communicate with each other locally, while the Nishio crew also uses Bolero wireless intercom for clear communications between the director inside the OB van and the camera operators.
Takako Konishi, Senior Sales Manager, Japan, at Riedel Communications, commented, “As Nishio continues to build its leadership in the fast-growing domestic 4K OB market, they’ve fostered solid trust in Riedel products in Japan through their ongoing use of our solutions.”
