TV Skyline has chosen Crystal Vision as the interface supplier for its new flagship OB truck, 7 the largest and most modern vehicle in the German service provider's fleet.
Based in Mainz and with a fleet of highly equipped OB vans, SNGs, and production vehicles, TV Skyline is a leading service provider for broadcast and multimedia events providing clients with turnkey solutions for events ranging from the FIFA World Cup to the Wagner festival in Bayreuth. 7 was launched in April 2014 and features 22 cameras and three separate control rooms. This new-generation vehicle is targeted at high-end TV production and sports coverage, including the E-Sports event League of Legends All-Star tournament in Paris, and therefore a particular focus was put on the quality of the signal processing and product reliability when selecting the equipment. Based on previous experience and company reputation, TV Skyline selected 51 Crystal Vision boards to provide the up and down conversion, synchronisation, audio embedding and signal distribution.
