The new OB fleet, comprising one large and two smaller vehicles, has recently been used by broadcaster Canal+ for a 4K HDR football broadcasting trial between Olympique Lyonnais and PSG in February. The fleet will also be used for European football championships, the Tour de France and other sporting events later this year.

The broadcast services provider has invested in the Kahuna 9600 production switcher for its multi-format capabilities. Enabled by SAM’s FormatFusion3 technology, Kahuna supports any combination of SD, HD, 1080p (level A & B) and 4K environments. Euromedia has also installed the Sirius 800 routers with advanced hybrid processing (AHP), integrated with VSM controllers, in its new OB vans. The Sirius 800 delivers operational flexibility, redundancy and provides processing capability on every input and output.
