SUCCESS STORY: OB van with SMPTE 304
Today fiber connections are a fundamental element for the transmission of high resolution signals over long distances. Through the connections covered by the SMPTE 304 (connector) and SMPTE 311 (cable) standards, we not only have a single-mode fiber connection, but we also have wiring for the camera power supply and connections for control and communication signals. All in a single cable of no more than 9.2mm.
Our customer EMCO Video Industrial has equipped an OB Van with SMPTE 304 connections for signal transmission from Blackmagic URSA Broadcast cameras and his CCU housed in the Mercedes Sprinter Van.
For a safe connection and transmission of signals, a panel with 6 SMPTE 304 connections was installed in the mobile unit, to which 6 Blackmagic cameras will be connected to their CCUs. These cameras can be located at a distance of up to 300 m (in this case, but the length can be extended up to 2 km). These long lengths of cable will be stored in APIL 18 and APIL 42 metal reels ensuring greater durability of this hybrid fiber and copper cable.
There are few industries which technological advances affect as decisively as the audio and video broadcasting sector. These changes have greatly increased the bandwidth requirements for retransmission in ultra-high definition UHD (4k, 8k) that higher data rate require.
Having reliable and high-performance wiring and combining it with specific solutions to achieve the professional connectivity required are determining factors in obtaining the best results. The Pinanson equipment guarantees an optimal degree of reliability, reducing costs and improving workflow in digital configurations in production studios.
SUCCESS STORY: Wanda Metropolitano signal distribution
The safe way to distribute the audio signal to the media in an event is by means of a distributor or press splitter: signal isolation by transformer, output level potentiometers … If the installation of said room transmits the audio signal through a Dante network signal, the SMC Dante splitter can be incorporated into this network and offer the press this signal already converted into an analog signal.
The Wanda Metropolitano stadium has an audio distributor in the club’s museum. The Dante network signal reaches the distributor from the network switch through CAT.6 RJ45 cable, the equipment converts it to 16 analog signals that will be available for the connection of the press equipments through XLR.
On the other hand, the stadium has in its press rooms 3G-SDI analog audio and digital video distribution equipment, a complete solution for the distribution of professional signals in an optimal way to cover the attending media in the sports stadium.

SUCCESS STORY: OLYMPIC GAMES IN RÍO 2016
Pinanson devices are being in the signal transmission in the Rio 2016 Olymic Games which are beginning on August 5.
Under request the company OBS, Pinanson designed and manufactued about 300 units of panels and portable boxes with RJ45 connections in order to the audio transmission for the press commentators through structured cabling in addition to custom made boxes with XLR-Bantam connections (on the front side) and EDAC connector (on the rear side).
On the other hand, 240 units of the well known BNC 3G-SDI Pinanson panels and 160 panels with optical fiber + data + audio connectors. They are being a key element of the signal transmission from the brazilian city.
Pinanson has been designing and manufacturing audio, video and data products for each Olympic Games from Athens 2004.
SUCCESS STORY: PINANSON AT CASTILLA LA MANCHA RADIO STUDIOS
Pinanson designed and manufactured, directed by the customer in this case Radio Castilla la Mancha, some audiovisual boxes for their recording studios. They are extruded aluminum made boxes from our Box 45º series for surfaces. In this format the connectors are exposed to the user with the most comfortable and ergonomic shape for the use that they have been created. These boxes are worth to adjust the level that each user needs. Include headphone output both Jack 6.3 and Jack 3.5 and a potentiometer for the level adjustment.
SUCCESS STORY: PINANSON AT REAL MADRID CITY
Following the very specific engineering guidelines from Real Madrid, Pinanson has designed and customized, the AV boxes that are installed on the Real Madrid City field in Valdebebas, Madrid.
These AV boxes are stainless steel made with IP66 water resistant, have been created for the connection of up to 8 video signals to be transmitted through the optical fiber installed in the fields.
Video Converters, are not permanently installed and they may be moved to the needed site.
SUCCESS STORY: NEW STADIUM IN NICE
Pinanson designs and manufactures all broadcasting AV Boxes in the new Nice stadium. The successor to the former Stade du Ray, Nice headquarters since 1927, has been under construction since August 2011 and was inaugurated in 2014.
SUCCESS STORY: PINANSON AT THE OLYMPIC GAMES LONDON 2012
More than 200 Pinanson Patchbays were used during the 2012 London Olympic Games, providing 9.200 points of Video connection for 3G-SDI in the Broadcast Centre.
From the Patchbays employed, the majority had a format of 2 rows of 24 connectors, and they were specifically designed for dispatching Video 3G-SDI signals. The BNC connectors that made up the Patchbay are Female/Female and they offer a real impedance of 75 ?. The devices are carried out to the Standard SMPTE 424M. The connector is isolated from the chassis with Teflon PTFE material. All the Pinanson Patchbays are made in extruded painted aluminium and has polyester labelling and reinforced steel bar that contribute to the durability and a perfect finish.
SUCCESS STORY: NATIONAL SPANISH RADIO CONNECTS WITH PINANSON
The new installation in the RNE centre of Madrid operates by means of NTP 635-300 controller.
The regional version is controlled in the same manner and distributes total control to the multiplex consoles NTP 715, equipment which is used by the public radio station. Pinanson supplies the interface PT38491, commonly called “Bornero”, for interconnecting these controllers with the different studios and the equipment of the radio. It is an interconnecting box of 3RU. On its front provides 72 terminal blocks. Each one of them corresponds to a channel that remains reflective for connecting itself in the same terminal block and every time it directs itself to every Harting multi connector (12 channels for every multi connector), in the back part of the box.
SUCCESS STORY: ON THE ROAD WITH RTVE
Since 2001, National Spanish Radio & Television (RTVE) equips its OB Vans with Pinanson Audio Splitter. More than 60 OB Vans are equipped with these splitters whose main characteristic is that they function through an isolated galvanic process of very high quality.
These splitters are used for sending direct signals to the console, fed by the PHANTOM signal and distributing these signals to a fixed receiver by means of a multi connector
They are designed with one mono balanced input XLR3F, 1 direct output through the Harting Multi connector and 2 isolated by transformer outputs: one through the Harting connector and the other through the XLR3M connector. Its use is very simple and intuitive. The audio reply is very accurate. Its Fly Case format (suitcase type), has to be robust and hard wearing, for its use in a mobile unit.
The Multichannel splitter from Pinanson finds itself with a very good response in frequency (deviation 20Hz-20KHz is ± 0.1 dB) and exceptional CMRR (common-mode rejection ratio) of 126 dB.
For the public entity they are usually made of 8 or 16 channels, nevertheless, there isn’t a limit of channels for a similar format.
SUCCESS STORY: PINANSON AT THE AFRICAN CUP 2012
For the African Cup 2012 celebrations that were held at the beginning of 2012 in the Republic of New Guinea and Gabon, Auditel was commissioned for installing the IBC’s (International Broadcast centres).
The IBC’s that serviced the communication during the championships, set themselves up in the annexes joined to the stadiums. The IBC of BATA accommodated 282 workstations and the Malabo, 68. Both installations had interview rooms and all the necessary equipment for the efficient broadcasting of the game reports. For these installations, Pinanson manufactured all the A/V IP65 boxes for the connection of the cameras, as well as the Audio and Video Patchbays for the transmission of the events.
