"We followed the match at the San Paolo stadium in Naples on 7th March with two of our mobile control rooms, two outside broadcast units different per size and capacity, OB22 that was responsible for creating the international host signal and OB20 which followed the national integration for Mediaset, with a total of 25 tv cameras."
Flight case units, FC1-2-3-4 by Italian “The Alliance” were born for mobile production in television coverage. In the latest few months they have been revised and completed updated to face new adventures in television production, especially in sports based programs -as the Universiadi in Kazakistan- but certainly not only that.
In cooperation with the Italian Ministry of Communications, Rai Way is responsible for the overall business management of transmissions and broadcasting operations of many of the most popular sporting events, including Giro d'Italia, and not only in Italy.
[January 2017] The Alliance, since the beginning of 2016, brought together three thirty-year experience companies in the broadcast television production market: Global Production, One TV and SBP. Today, The Alliance represents the major TV provider Facilities operating in Italy, from the offices of Milan, Rome, Padua and Turin.
Adolfo Guzzetti from Video AG Cassano (mid way from Milan and Varese production and post company) tells us: "Just think that we are capable of reading a papyrus of 4 thousand years ago and instead we risk not being able to read ever more the information contained on magnetic tapes of thirty or forty years ago. Is that acceptable?"
