Denmark - Having recently been awarded a contract to relay 300 Superliga football matches over the next three years, Danish event and television production specialist dbLux has taken delivery of a new outside broadcast truck, complete with a DiGiCo SD10B digital console.

The Superliga is Denmark's top football league, featuring 12 teams who play each other three times during the season. The teams finishing in the top four places at the end of the season gain places in the UEFA Champions League and Europa League, so competition between the comparatively small number of clubs is fierce.

In order to fulfil this, along with other outside broadcast and music production tasks, a new 10 camera HD truck was built by Avit Systems A/S, who also installed all the technical equipment and infrastructure. Built to conform with EBU R128 loudness standards, the truck's SD10B was supplied by DiGiCo's Danish distributor Soundware A/S.

"The SD10B is cost efficient while offering lots of broadcast-specific features," says Soundware's Kim Johansen. "We demoed the console at ProLight+Sound and, not long after, dbLux ordered one with remote PSU, plus three D-Racks on HMA optics."

The DiGiCo console is fed by the vehicle's Grass Valley audio router, via two MADI streams totalling 112 channels for EVS and Avid production systems, plus intercoms. Inputs also come from the three D-Racks on Optocore connections for field of play microphones and on-site studio sources. The D-Racks also feed the headsets and in-ear systems for reporters and studio anchors.
