VoiceBox’s Williams says that exhibiting at the show is an excellent opportunity to understand the “real needs” of clients who want to break down language barriers: “Whilst the world has become a much smaller place through the advancements in communications - we use video conferencing and emails to engage with our clients - there’s always something to be said for meeting people face-to-face.” Speaking of the range of exhibitors and attendees, Williams added: “At this year’s IBC, we’re meeting with owners of Nordic video libraries, video editors from Canada and app builders from Austria - all of which want to take their content to different language territories. It’s a really eclectic mix of clients and testament to the booming multilingual multimedia industry.”

25 August, 2015 - L-S-B Broadcast Technologies and Broadcast Solutions GmbH jointly announce an agreement on the exclusive use of VSM in all Streamline OB Vans by default.

L-S-B Broadcast Technologies, the German-based specialist in Broadcast Control Systems, and its VSM system is set as the default control system in all Streamline OB Vans to be built in the future. With the Streamline OB Van family, Broadcast Solutions GmbH, one of Europe’s biggest and fastest growing system integrators, offers pre-engineered and nearly “off-the-shelf” OB Vans for every broadcasting environment.

Broadcast Solutions offers Streamline OB Vans in five different versions – from 4, 6, 8, 12 to 16 cameras. All Streamline OB’s come with highly developed and pre-engineered solutions and are delivered turn-key to the customer – fitting in any outdoor broadcasting environment.

L-S-B and its VSM control system is the leading control and monitoring solution in the OB Van market worldwide. VSM is an IP-based control system that is scalable, hardware independent and – due to server redundancy – 100% failsafe.

Depending on the Streamline version VSM is working in, the VSM system is implemented with a standardized feature set. This, on the one hand, enables the users to benefit from all needed functions of the system and on the other hand offers exactly the functionalities geared to the specific Streamline version and production demands.

Common to every VSM system in all Streamline versions, the control systems has direct access to all relevant hardware within the vehicle: router, multiviewer, audio and vision mixer, intercom and glue equipment. Furthermore VSM controls the Labels and Tally signals, so there is no need for an additional tally system.

Used in the Streamline versions S12 and S16 VSM is implemented referring to its full feature set. In the smaller Streamline OB Vans (S 4, S6 and S8), VSM offers video router control, audio router control, vision mixer control with Tally and Labelling, multiviewer Tally, Labels, GPIO, Tally and several LCD Panels, depending on the Streamline version.

At IBC Show Broadcast Solutions will show two different Streamline OB versions at their outdoor stand O.B01. At display will be a Mediatec Streamline S12 and a newly built Streamline S8 with full 4K functionality – both controlled with VSM.
