BT Sport Channel will broadcast the UEFA Europa League final with the help of local broadcast technology provider, Baku Media Center, together with Sunset + Vine production company. For the final, Baku Media will deploy their mobile production fleet, developed by Broadcast Solutions. BT Sport will screen the game on their channels, plus a free stream on YouTube in UHD.
Broadcast Solutions, Europe’s OB van manufacturer, has a long-lasting relationship with Baku Media Center. The German company has delivered several production vehicles, including a 16 camera Streamline S16 trailer, support vehicle, and DSNG. In April this year, and just in time for the UEFA final, Broadcast Solutions delivered an additional 12 camera OB plus supporting truck to Baku Media Center, that will also be used at the UEFA Europa League final.
The new OB truck is based on the Streamline S8L design. Streamline OB Vans are pre-engineered production vehicles and with over 40 units. Because of the adjusted Streamline concept, the S8L offers three dedicated rooms in a box-body combination with 10-12 workplaces, and works with up to 12 cameras. For Baku Media Center, Broadcast Solutions combined the OB van with a supporting truck of the same size plus generator trailer, thus, offering maximum flexibility in the field.
For the final, Baku Media Center will provide service with the two OB vans, to cover the action from the field and a unique studio. The signals will be aired to the satellite using a Broadcast Solutions special-built DSNG unit with a four-wheel-drive SUV.
