Astro gets on the road with KIT digital system integration

Louise Duffy | 23-08-2012

Malaysian broadcaster Astro Malaysia has taken delivery of its first HD outside broadcast production trailer, from KIT digital.

The trailer, supplied by KIT digital's Broadcast System Integration business (formerly Megahertz Broadcast Systems) has been designed to cover live sport and entertainment production throughout Malaysia.

Astro engaged KIT digital BSI to build the 13.5m trailer as part of the companys first steps to migrate its mobile operations to HD.

The single-sided expandable trailer is equipped with 20 cameras, facilities to house four EVS XT SD/HD video servers, up to six VTRs, a Final Cut Pro editor and two Yamaha DM2000 audio mixers. It is expected that this capsule list of equipment will be standardised across all future Astro OB vehicles.

Before being acquired by KIT digital, Megahertz had worked with Astro to provide two smaller HD Production trucks for the broadcaster in 2010 at the start of the companys HD roll-out plans.

Dennis Dovale, operations manager, Astro Productions, said: We worked with KIT digital and Megahertz to help facilitate the transition of our business to HD. Using an internationally-based organisation allowed us to drive best practices borne out of the latest developments in the global live production markets.

Using a company like KIT digital has allowed us to incorporate the latest in design from an operational and technical perspective, commissioning the latest state-of-the-art solutions to maximise our requirements for live sports production and to support the migration of our business to HD.

Steve Burgess, technical director at KIT digital Broadcast Systems Integration, added: Over the years KIT digital and Megahertz have enjoyed an excellent relationship with the team at Astro, and we were delighted to be able to support them with the implementation of their first HD trailer which forms part of their transition to HD.

Our ability to understand our clients business while drawing on our in-house expertise from 3D CAD design, engineering and coach building to custom furniture design and integral wiring, allows us to deliver turnkey solutions to meet the most demanding client requirements on schedule.
