Euromedia’s fleet of three hybrid 4K outside broadcast vans have been equipped with Sam’s (Snell Advanced Media) Kahuna, IQ Modular and Sirius technology.

The new OB fleet, comprising one large and two smaller vehicles, were commissioned to support the broadcast of live events including sports, music and entertainment.

The trucks were used by Canal+ for a 4K HDR football broadcasting trial between Olympique Lyonnais and PSG in February.

The fleet will also be used for European football championships, the Tour de France and other sporting events later this year.

Euromedia technical director Gaël Tanguy said: “Our aim is to remain the premium technical service provider in the broadcast live events space, whether we’re talking about the summer athletics, a major football tournament or a live music event.

“We’ve worked closely with Sam to help us reach this goal, and the support that they provide us on a day-to-day basis is critical. Sam offers the best solutions to help us build our operations to cope with whatever our customers require.”

Euromedia is using Sam’s Kahuna 9600 production switcher, which supports SD, HD, 1080p and 4K environments. The OB firm has also installed Sam’s Sirius 800 routers. It previously invested in Sam’s ICE channel-in-a-box and Morpheus playout automation technology.
