WUPPERTAL, Germany—One of France’s leading providers of Out-of-Home (OB) and production services, Amp Visual TV, has selected Riedel to provide signal routing and processing as well as communications technologies for its new broadcast vehicles. UHD Millenium 3 and Millenium 4 live production.
The vehicles use the Riedel MediorNet real-time network to drive productions with 14 cameras (10 4K compatible) for the two trucks.
Riedel Artist Digital Matrix Intercom and Bolero Wireless Intercom provide reliable, flexible and transparent crew communications.
Specializing in live television production, Amp Visual TV has one of the largest OB van fleets in Europe, 44 in total. It also operates 29 studios in Paris – eight with fixed control rooms.
Riedel has already worked with Amp Visual TV on the launch of its flagship Millenium Signature 12, a 44-camera (22 4K) van driven by a massive MediorNet signal transport infrastructure. Building on its success, this unit was quickly followed by the Millenium 6 OB van project, also based on Riedel technology.
François Valadoux, CTO of Amp Visual TV noted that “we had an exceptional experience working with Riedel on Millenium Signature 12, the first OB van in Europe entirely based on MediorNet video routing and processing technology. MediorNet has not only been a huge success on our Millenium Signature 12 and Millenium 6 OB vans, but it also provides live coverage of our DSNG vehicles and has been instrumental in the live broadcasts of our 24 Hours of Le Mans series. . Therefore, it made sense to look again to Riedel to provide a fully decentralized and scalable hybrid infrastructure for Millenium 3 and 4. “
MediorNet’s modular and networked DNA makes OB vans, flying control rooms and stage boxes fully interconnectable, allowing the combined mobile units to handle larger productions while ensuring that they can each operate efficiently in mode. self-contained for small jobs, the companies reported.
Millenium 3 and 4 are each designed for daily UHD video productions while also having the ability to expand for larger productions by simply merging with any other system in Amp Visual TV’s fleet with Riedel technology on board.
The combined Millenium 3 and 4 units provided coverage of the last UEFA Champions League game in Paris in early March.
Valadoux added that “MediorNet is at the heart of our philosophy of providing a fleet of OB units that can be easily shared, combined and reshipped on the fly according to our daily production needs. In particular, the latest MediorNet MicroN UHD modular devices play a key role with their incredible 48-port video density – with rack space savings that are always welcome in mobile applications – as well as 400G bandwidth for create virtually unlimited mesh topology scenarios. “
In addition to MediorNet, Millenium 3 and 4 have an IP communications infrastructure based on Riedel’s premium Artist-1024 digital matrix intercom in conjunction with Bolero – which Amp Visual TV recently named as the wireless intercom standard. wire for all of its operation. The communications system also includes a mix of Riedel’s intelligent IP-based user interfaces of the 1200 and 2300 SmartPanel series.
