The Streamline S12 is the first OB Van owned by the Ekstraklasa Live Park directly. Having previously rented production vehicles, Live Park decided it was time to run its own OB van. Ekstraklasa's requirements were compact design, short delivery time and reasonable costs. In cooperation with NEP Sweden (formerly Mediatec) Broadcast Solutions built and delivered this OB Van to within three months, from order to delivery.

The OB van is designed with flexibility in mind and features components from Lawo and Riedel. The van also offers a full network-based embedding/de-embedding/frame-synchronisation system.

The new arrival is currently dedicated to Ekstraklasa's football coverage and will be used in more than 100 football game productions per year. The company will also deploy it for galas, concerts and further sports and special events.

“We were looking for an experienced company which could guarantee top-level quality," said Marcin Serafin, COO of Ekstraklasa Live Park. "As Broadcast Solutions produced a lot of OB’s the last couple of years and the quality has been proven by other clients, we decided to collaborate with the company. Another very important aspect was the time of delivery. We only had three months for the complete project, and Broadcast Solutions did it just in time - without any delays!”
