Ely, UK – KIT digital Inc.’s Broadcast System Integration business (formerly Megahertz Broadcast Systems) has delivered the first high-definition outside broadcast (OB) production trailer—designed to cover live sports and entertainment production throughout Malaysia—to Astro Malaysia Holdings Berhad. The delivery is part of Astro’s first steps to migrate its mobile operations to HD.

The single-sided expandable OB production trailer is equipped with 20 cameras, and includes facilities to house four EVS XT SD/HD video servers, up to six VTRs, a Final Cut Pro editor as well as two Yamaha DM2000 audio mixers. It is expected that this capsule list of equipment will be standardised across all future Astro OB vehicles to ensure familiarity and ease of use for the operational teams in the field.
