tpc, Switzerland (ongoing)
sonoVTS will complete the design and build of a new 24-camera UHD broadcasting vehicle for tpc. Wishing to deploy a SMPTE 2110 IP-standard, tpc decided to use Imagine Communications’ IP-based distribution core, processing and multiviewer technology. The new truck will be the first in the industry to fully support uncompressed HD and UHD signals over IP. All signal processing is accomplished in uncompressed UHD by network processors that have been adapted to the IP-backbone with dual 100Gb/s Ethernet connectivity. sonoVTs designed and installed a total of 24 UHD workstations for the UHD trailer, which a total length of 16.5 meters, width of 4.5 meters, and an overall weight of 40 tons when fully assembled with four extensions. The project covers the planning, system design, body and vehicle construction, interior design and construction, and the installation of electronics and air-conditioning as well as system integration.
