Snell to equip first German 3D OB truck

UK broadcast equipment provider Snell has been chosen by German outside broadcast equipment specialist Broadcast Solutions to provide its Kahuna HD/SD multi-format production switcher for a new 16-camera 3D/HD broadcast truck.

The truck, built for HD Broadcast, is Germany’s first 3D-equipped OB vehicle. It includes two independent video production areas and an audio control room. The truck includes two Kahuna production switchers — one for each production area — in addition to a Snell Cygnus video router with 288 inputs and 528 outputs, and several components from the Snell IQ Modular infrastructure range.
