Outside broadcast firm SIS LIVE has set up a studio in a double decker bus for France TV Sport’s coverage of the London Olympics.

Described by SIS as “the fi rst ever live broadcasts from a mobile TV studio”, the bus can transmit live TV while on the move using RF H.264 technology and four fixed receive points around London.

Programmes and inserts from the bus are sent to France TV Sport’s Olympic base for onward fibre transmission.

The vehicle, which is operated by 10 SIS LIVE staff, is equipped with nine on-board HD cameras including five miniature remote-controlled heads and a roving wireless camera transmitting via MPEG4 radio link.
