New outside broadcasting van introduced
The news service of the VRT has taken a new and compact vehicle in use. Satellite broadcasting equipment is placed on the roof. Inside, images and sound can be easily mounted and sent to the editorial office. The vehicle received the nickname “The Beast”.
You can see the vehicle in action here.
Prototype implemented by VRT Research & Innovation
The technology used to send the material to the editorial office is the result of a research project by VRT Research & Innovation. The designed prototype was made production ready by the technology department of the VRT.
Due to a combination of different communication channels (WiFi hotspots, internet-, satellite-, TNG-connections…), editors are able to receive video and audio in a much quicker way.
