Timeline Television, a major provider of outside-broadcast, post-production, and studio-based services for all major UK networks, will be showcasing its IP 4K HDR outside-broadcast (OB) truck, UHD2, at BVE 2018 on stand Q55. UHD2 – the world’s most advanced IP 4K HDR truck – seamlessly handles fully uncompressed UHD, IP and HDR.

The state-of-the-art, triple-expanding OB truck, UHD2, is home to a range of SAM and Axon technology.

The 32-camera triple-expanding truck delivers 4K HDR uncompressed broadcasts, using SAM IP infrastructure, a Kahuna IP switcher and IP multiviewer, Sony 4K cameras and EVS servers – all controlled and monitored by Axon’s Cerebrum platform via a single fully customisable user interface. The vehicle also features a range of Axon 4K infrastructure products and hardware panels.

With an Arista 7504R 100G IP switch at its heart combined with the SAM IP infrastructure, UHD2 delivers large scale complex OBs simultaneously in uncompressed 4K UHD HDR and SDR. The truck’s two Kahuna mixers enable clients to have a separate HDR workflow additional to their normal programme.

This set-up allows production teams to work in VSF TR03 SMPTE ST 2110 – the first time this has been done in an OB truck – enabling Timeline to work with video and audio as separate essence flows within an IP workflow.

UHD2 will be an official feature of BVE and will be used to distribute and edit content throughout the show, the first time this has been done at the show.

Quinn Cowper, Head of Vision Engineering at Timeline Television, will also be talking on the panel: IP production: Enabling the new broadcast system? within the BVE Techflow Futures on 27 February at 12.30pm.
