Riedel provides systems for Shaanxi Broadcasting’s new OB van


Shaanxi Broadcasting Corporation’s new 4K OB van features an advanced all-IP intercom solution from Riedel Communications comprising Artist and SmartPanel systems to support rapid creation of video content for new media platforms along with the traditional Shaanxi Broadcasting Corporation broadcast output. The van was unveiled in June at the China Content Broadcasting Network Show 2021 (CCBN).

“The convergence of linear and nonlinear media and the migration of broadcasting to IP have brought greater complexity to production,” said a representative from Shaanxi Broadcasting Corporation. “Traditional intercom systems aren’t designed to handle the higher volume of signal connections and more complicated routing requirements associated with modern production, but Riedel’s advanced IP-compatible intercom systems are up to the challenge. The Riedel Artist and SmartPanel systems integrate smoothly into the SMPTE ST 2110-based IP infrastructure implemented on this new van and, if needed, can easily connect to any other IP-based infrastructure.”

The Shaanxi Broadcasting Corporation 4K OB van is equipped with a Riedel Artist 64 intercom matrix and RSP-1232HL and RSP-2318 SmartPanels, deployed in a spine-and-leaf configuration. The Riedel systems communicate with other devices via Layer-3 routing. The NMOS API running on Artist provides centralised control, while IS-04 and IS-05 support streamlines multicast routing. To maintain synchronisation, the Artist system locks to the system PTP timing server, facilitating connection to other systems in IP mode.

The OB van’s first assignment will be the live broadcast from Xi’an, Shaanxi Province, of September’s 14th National Games of the People’s Republic of China.

“We are honoured to be providing a full IP-based communication system for Shaanxi Broadcasting Corporation and to contribute to the live broadcast of the 14th National Games,” said Gao Jian, general manager of Riedel China. “China is already at the forefront in implementing IP infrastructure for radio and television. Together, media convergence and the emergence of 5G have enabled China’s radio and television broadcasters to take another leap ahead in this field. Riedel has been an intercom and transmission solutions provider for more than 35 years, and we’re proud to be supporting China’s advances in deploying IP-based systems.”
