With its new OB-8 production truck, Global Production was looking to build a state-of-the-art vehicle capable of meeting market demand for delivering high-value content in UHD HDR. The goal was to fit 30 full-4K camera chains and related production equipment into a single OB van, which meant optimization of both the internal operational space and of the broadcast infrastructure was paramount in this truck’s design.
Global Production wanted its new van to have the same look and feel as the other vehicles in its fleet and provide an excellent working environment for the crews.
Working with its systems integration partner Chromaline, Global needed to implement operator-familiar workflows to ensure consistency and maintain efficiency.
To ensure that the new van would keep Global Production comfortably ahead of the competition, Chromaline was tasked with designing a production solution for OB-8 that optimizes software solutions within a hybrid SDI-IP environment.
