A Remarkable Journey from IBC 2023

The curtains have fallen on IBC 2023, leaving ARET video and audio engineering with a sense of achievement and immense gratitude.
The Alamiya Media OB-20 XL Semi-Trailer, proudly displayed at the exhibition, has now embarked on the final leg of its voyage to Italy before the official handover to our client.

With more than 43,065 attendees from over 170 countries and over 1,250 exhibitors, IBC 2023 was an international spectacle, and we were thrilled to be a part of it.

We’ve seen a fantastic turnout from the entire industry at IBC2023. The quality of visitors has been outstanding. There’s been a real sense of purpose at the show as media leaders and tech pioneers come together to help our industry navigate change and build a better future” said Michael Crimp, IBC Chief Executive Officer.

Being at IBC means celebration of innovation, collaboration, and reconnecting with partners from across the globe. It was incredible to reunite with people who share the same passion for cutting-edge broadcasting technology.

As the Alamiya Media OB trailer begins its final journey to completion, ARET video and audio engineering is excited to share more updates and insights with you in the coming days, remaining committed to pushing the boundaries of innovation in the broadcasting technology sphere.




IBC 2023: Alamiya OB-20 XL Semi-Trailer

ARET video and audio engineering gears up for one of the most anticipated events in the media and broadcasting industry. We're delighted to share that our showcased masterpiece projected for Alamiya Media is already en route to Amsterdam.

The XL Semi-Trailer for Alamiya Media represents a pinnacle of hyperconverged technology solutions. This cutting-edge configuration boasts UHD-HDR video workflow at 12G and AES67 audio networking.
Purpose-built to accommodate 24 UHD system cameras, including 5 high-frame-rate (HFR) cameras capable of 8x speed. Adding to its prowess are 2 UHD RF cameras and 8 UHD Slomo-Server slots. High-end micro-cameras elevate its capabilities further.
The PCR room is segmented into Slow-Motion and Production zones. A standout feature is the noise-isolated Audio room, thoughtfully separated from operational areas and housing local equipment racks with independent cooling systems.
The engineering room includes the Shading area plus a single and flexible working space dedicated to lead engineering operations.
The C.A.R. ensures the complete isolation of the broadcast facilities with redundant cooling facilities in addition to a wide external connection tailboard.
Notably, this special coach design thrives in high-temperature climates, showcasing the OB-trailer’s adaptability.

In terms of products, a vital component of the Alamiya OB20 trailer is the Ultrix FR12 with Acuity Blades, an advanced solution that combines routing (216x216 UHD), video switchers (4ME UHD), audio mixing, MultiViewers, trays of frame syncs, and audio embedders/disembedders into a single 12RU chassis. This powerful platform consolidates multiple functions into a compact unit, optimizing efficiency, space, and resources.
The main production room within the truck is equipped with Acuity A3 Panel, a control surface with 32 crosspoint buttons designed to operate the Ultrix-Acuity switcher. This intuitive interface allows precise control of switching operations, ensuring efficient video resource management.

The system is completed with a powerful 12G-SDI Ross Video Opengear Gator, Carbonite Ultra engines as platform converters, and all the needed networking equipment. Onboard the trailer, it will be possible to explore a selection of Ross equipment, including the MIRA replay server and Xpression Graphics Platform, the most advanced real-time graphics and video enrichment technology stack on the market.

The audio control room within the truck is equipped with Lawo’s mc²56 audio production console. The Lawo mc²56 features compact size, flexibility, and versatile design for applications as diverse as broadcast trucks and studios, live performance and recording. It is optimized for today’s IP-video production environments, designed for networking in complex production infrastructures, with full native support for SMPTE 2110, AES67/RAVENNA, DANTE (via a Power Core gateway), MADI and Ember+. Local I/Os include 16 Lawo-grade MIC/Line inputs, 16 Line outputs, eight AES3 inputs and outputs, eight GPI/Os, and a local MADI port (SFP).

Lawo’s VSM (Virtual Studio Manager) broadcast control system, serving as the nerve center of the Alamiya OB truck, is unparalleled in its powerful and flexible IP-based control capabilities. Its seamless integration with a wide array of broadcast equipment, including video routers, audio consoles, and intercoms, makes it an ideal choice for managing resources efficiently. It also keeps evolving as ever more lighthouse projects require increasingly refined control and flexibility options. With its intuitive touch-enabled interface, Lawo’s VSM empowers producers with fast and accurate control over remote, distributed, and facility-wide resources and OB production trucks for exacting streamlined operations.

Visitors to the event will have the opportunity to experience the Alamiya OB-20 XL Semi-Trailer capabilities firsthand by joining ARET Booth (0.A07).

The countdown to IBC2023 has officially begun. Amsterdam, here we come!

        New 24 ULTRA HD Cameras OB Van presentation

        New 24 ULTRA HD Cameras OB Van presentation

        ARET just presented its brand-new concept OB Van at the 2017 edition of the IBC Show in Amsterdam. This OB trailer, which features two large expansions, can be configured up to 24 Ultra HD cameras. The interior is divided into six wide operational areas plus a dedicated equipment room. This trailer is meant as a laboratory for experiencing new ideas both in the coachwork and in the system design. These new defined solutions will be available to the customer to empower their production. The new OB Van represents a different and innovative solution regarding layouts, workspaces, mechanical solutions and, of course, an additional improvement in quality to become a flagship realization over the 40+ years of ARET coachbuilding.

        The acoustic insulated main audio room has stunning acoustics. A 5.1 calibrated surround system delivers high fidelity sound. The main production area features a large 3D shaped monitor wall with a production desk that can be fully adjusted. The same holds for the desk behind the main console that can also be used by PAs and coordinators.

        An automatic sliding glass door divides the production area from the camera control. The full height glass wall of the second production room allows ease of communication between the operators working in the two environments. The insulated equipment room isolates the rest of the production areas from noise and vibrations.
