NEP Switzerland has doubled its 4K production resources in readiness for broadcast production work on the 2017/2018 season of the Swiss Raiffeisen Super League (RSL). Contracted to produce all of the Premier Swiss Football League’s games in 4K/UHD, the TV service provider has commissioned the 4K/UHD UHD 42 OB Vehicle – constructed by German system integrator Broadcast Solutions GmbH as part of its Streamline series, with two production areas supporting up to 10 cameras.
UHD 42 made its debut at the RSL season opener, a top match between BSC Young Boys Bern and FC Basel that took place at the end of July in the Stade de Suisse in Berne in front of a capacity crowd. Along with the UHD 41 OB – which was commissioned last year and is also being fielded for the Raiffeisen Super League – NEP Switzerland now operates two large-scale 4K/UHD OB Vans, and produces more than 140 league games in 4K during the season. Broadcast though the Teleclub Sport Pay-TV channel, RSL ranks among the world’s sharpest sports broadcasting.
Main focus of the job was to promote NEP Switzerland’s production of Raiffeisen Super League in 4K/UHD using the two OB Vans and to explain the overall technology behind.
