Tuesday, August 8th, 2017 [Ottawa, Ontario, Canada] – South Africa’s Vision View Productions has been working with a variety of sports teams and leagues in the SADEC region of Africa since 2005 and provides both live and pre-packaged content to broadcasters around the continent. With an emphasis on basketball, netball, hockey and various varsity sports, Vision View has developed a reputation as a full-service provider that uses the latest in broadcast technology solutions.
When Vision View were looking to refurbish their fleet of OB vans they turned to long-term partners Gearhouse Broadcast and Ross Video. Mafadi Mpuru, co-founder of Vision View, stresses the value of these relationships. “We began working with Gearhouse many years ago and purchased one of their OB Lite solutions that included the Ross Carbonite production switcher. It’s been a great workhorse product for us and everyone on the team has remarked on its powerful performance. As our business has grown, so have our technical requirements and we’ve consistently found that Ross has the solutions we need. OB production work these days is all about efficiency and flexibility, and we’re working with two great partners who really understand our business and deliver great value and service”.
Ross Video’s Director of Sales for EMEA, Oscar Juste, highlights the importance of the Ultrix routing platform within Vision View’s workflow. “We launched Ultrix as an innovative routing platform but it’s a product that has so many uses and applications; it’s like a swiss army knife with routing, multi-viewers, audio processing and a host of scalable features all squeezed into a neat 2RU frame. We’re very pleased to be working with Vision View and we know that African viewers have a huge appetite for sport – it’s great to see both Carbonite and Ultrix helping meet that need”.
