Arena TV has added Lawo’s VSM control system to its fleet of outside broadcast vans.

VSM controls the routing in the Cisco switch, the Grass Valley Node, the Grass Valley K-Frame vision mixer, the Calrec audio mixing console, the G&D KVM matrix and a Nevion data router for remote controller.

It also acts as the master tally and label system for the Grass Valley multiviewer system.

Arena’s OBX (pictured) and OBY trucks are already in service, while OBZ will be launched early next year.

Equipment from Barnfind is used for signal distribution from the IP-equipped vehicles.
