Sony equips 4K OB truck for Taiwan’s MOMOTV


Sony has worked closely with digital TV broadcaster MOMOTV to build and equip a 4K OB van for sports content, as dedicated sports channels see an upswing in the country.

Apart from holding exclusive broadcasting rights, the only way for Taiwanese TV stations to gain a bigger share of TV sports action is to either stream more live matches or upgrade production quality, and Taipei-based MOMOTV decided to do both. Owned by the Fubon Group, MOMOTV first started broadcasting in 2011 covering a wide genre of programmes, including news, lifestyle, entertainment, kids and sports.

“This is our first 4K OB van,” said Super Chang, director, field production centre, MOMOTV. “MOMOTV worked closely with the Sony team to build and kit the OB van in record time. By expanding our live 4K capabilities, we hope to stay ahead of the game and continue delivering top-notch quality to our viewers.”

Among the Sony solutions acquired by MOMOTV are the HDC-4800 4K/HD ultra high frame rate camera system, HDC-4300 4K/HD studio camera, XVS-8000 and XVS-7000 multi-format switchers, PWS-4500 live production server and BVM-X300 4K Trimaster ELTM OLED critical reference monitor. The broadcaster also invested in two HDC-4800 4K/HD ultra high frame rate camera systems for its live baseball and basketball coverage.

“Sony has an excellent track record in supporting TV stations from start to finish,” added Chang. “In the 4K arena, they stand out with a wide range of solutions tailor-made for our current and growing needs. The Sony HDC-4800 is the ultimate camera for sports coverage. This high-speed camera allows us to capture dynamic sports action with ultra-smooth slow motion.”

Although MOMOTV will use most of the Sony equipment for its live coverage of the Chinese Professional Baseball League and the ASEAN Basketball League, it has the flexibility to deploy the equipment for events and studio use. “Our main goal now is expanding our 4K sports content, but we will certainly use our new Sony equipment for medium- and large-scale production events too,” said Chang. “Together with our new OB van, MOMOTV is ready to map out a new journey in 4K.”
