Technical details

OB van DSNG Studiotech Belgium audiovisualThe SNG/DSNG (Digital Satellite News Gathering) OB van is a quick response satellite news gathering system that comes equipped with extraordinarily complex and versatile technology.

The system communicates by the SWE-DISH antenna on top of the van. This system proved its worth in military use, and aligns itself automatically to the required direction, making the system ready to broadcast within 10 minutes.

The material recorded with the Sony XDCAM camcorders are relayed by the Gigawave wireless transmission system to the care of the editors working in the SNG van who can cut the material ready to be broadcasted with any professional editing software (e.g. Avid).

The complex workflow is further supported by the use of video processors, control panels, other system elements, digital video and sound mixers, monitors, broadcasting play-out monitors, wired and RF microphone systems.

We emphasize the stylish and ergonomical internal design:
  • Design of the operating control panel with bench, sunk contol panels, light steel racks.
  • Safe working conditions for tasks done standing on foot.
  • Heat and soundproof covering, antistatic floor.
  • Supporting perches on the outside (remotely controlled, hidraulic, warning signal, blocking system).
  • Gigawave products like head unit, triax cable, dolly and further supplementary devices can be integrated safely and sensibly.
  • Storage places for cable reels and other devices (to avoid damage on the road).
  • Uniform appearance.
We implement the entire technological infrastructure of the van, as well:
  • Built-in generator, fuel providing and exhaust system.OB van DSNG Studiotech Belgium audiovisual
  • Internal lighting, and service lights both on the in and outside.
  • Electrical system with disconnector transformer and output stabilizer.
  • Outside connector system for 230 V with proper safety mechanisms implemented.
  • Heating and cooling air conditioning system with ventilator and shaft on the top of the van - capable of lead the heat off of the rack as well.
